Removes sheet metal data from the selected features.
The command can dissolve sheet metal features on 3D solid faces. Dissolved features are no longer listed in the Mechanical Browser. Faces of dissolved features can be moved, rotated or push-pulled freely.
Accessing the Command
command bar: smdissolve
menu bar: Sheet Metal | Dissolve
toolbar: Sheet Metal | Dissolve
ribbon: Sheet Metal | Modify | Dissolve
Quad cursor menu: Sheet Metal | Dissolve
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select faces on models or [Entire model] <Entire model>: (Select a face, or entities, or right click to select the entire model.)
Entities in set: 1
Select faces on models: (Select a face or right click to stop.)
Selects all entities in the model.
SmConvert - automatically recognizes flanges, bends and lofted bends in a 3D solid.
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.
SmExtrude - creates sheet metal part from a planar polyline by extruding it orthogonally to the plane of the polyline.
SmFlangeBase - creates a base (initial) flange of a sheet metal part from a closed planar profile.
SmForm - converts a selected set of faces to a form feature.
SmLoft - creates sheet metal part with lofted bends and flanges from two non-coplanar curves.
