SmConvert - automatically recognizes flanges, bends and lofted bends in a 3D solid.
SmExtrude - creates sheet metal part from a planar polyline by extruding it orthogonally to the plane of the polyline.
SmFlangeConnect - closes gaps between two arbitrarily oriented flanges.
SmFlangeBend - allows to bend an existing flange along a line, obeying k-factor for given bend radius.
SmFlangeEdge - creates one or more flanges to a sheet metal part by pulling one or more edges of an existing flange.
SmFlip - swaps sides of a selected flange so that reference faces are on the other geometric side of the flange.
