    Round on surface of Sheetmetal Punched Form

    Having a problem with around. I punched a sheetmetal part and then tried to round the the base of the form. The round inverts. Instead of forming a fillet "up" it forms "down". Anybody else have this problem?

    I will try to take a look on Monday at work. Decided to make my weekend a three day's as to much work and not enough play makes for no fun.

    I'm not an expert at using punch tools on Creo, but looking at your STEP files, it appears that your punch is creating a through hole in your model. Online videos seem to support the idea that sharp inside edges on the punch model will create a cut in the sheet metal. Try adding your radius to your punch model or creating a new punch model with a radius and see if that solves your problem.
