The command extrudes a flange from a contour and connects it with selected flanges via bends.
SmFlangeConnect - closes gaps between two arbitrarily oriented flanges.
SmFlangeEdge - creates one or more flanges to a sheet metal part by pulling one or more edges of an existing flange.
SmJunctionCreate - converts hard edges (sharp edges between flange faces) and bends into junctions.
SmDelete - removes a bend or a junction by restoring a hard edge between two flanges; removes a flange with all the bends adjacent to it. The adjacent flanges are extended up to a junction configuration with the flange being deleted. Removes miter by restoring geometry being cut by the feature.
SmDissolve - removes sheet metal data from the selected faces or entities.
