question on Form.

I have created the die and the parts, need to punch the part to create some features. However when i trying to "assemble" those two, it says "could not intersect part with feature."


Do i need to make some kind of surface before I punch the part?


thanx

I usually create the punch rather than the die, but it should work with a die.........anyway, yes I always create a surface from which to create the punch ( i.e. a 2 x 2 x .10 thk...then create the form on that surface) Mate the punch surface with the sheetmetal surface you want the form on. Note, keep the created surface on the punch to not much larger than the actual form itself (creates problems placing next to bends etc. if surface is too large)

Try this for now........it is of a PTC webcast on how to place UDF's (forms) onto a sheetmetal part..........you will need speakers to be able to hear it...........I will keep looking for a better tutorial, but this might help:
