Does your company design sheet metal parts? Do you need a better understanding of how to model those parts using synchronous sheet metal design? If so, then this hands-on session is for you. We will walk through step by step modeling a complex sheet metal using Solid Edge ST5. We will look at specific workflows and techniques to improve your productivity designing sheet metal parts in synchronous technology. Even if you have legacy files that you want to be able to modify in a synchronous way, we will walk through when and how to move sheet metal features to the synchronous environment for faster edits. Once you understand these techniques, you won’t want to design sheet metal parts in any other way! If you attended last year, you may have seen some of this information before, but don’t let that keep you from coming back and learning something new.
