1 Inventor (10) Module 1E: 1E- 1 Module 1E: Parallel-Line Flat Pattern Development of Sheet- Metal Folded Model Wrapping the 3D Space of An Oblique Circular Cylinder In this Module, we will explore the topic of oblique cylinder by creating sheet metal parts in Autodesk Inventor wrapping the 3D space of an oblique cylinder with a circular cross section. An oblique cylinder is one with the central axis as well as all element lines being not straight up but forming an angle 0 <θ<90 with the horizontal ground. There may be two cases: An oblique cylinder with a circular cross-section; in this case, the development of 2D Flat Pattern can be obtained through parallel-line development method (Figure1E-1A); An oblique cylinder with a circular base; in this case, the development of 2D Flat Pattern can be obtained through triangulation development method. In this Module, we will study the methods of creating sheet metal parts in Autodesk Inventor wrapping the 3D space of an oblique cylinder with a circular cross section. There are two basic methods for creating the lateral piece: Creating the lateral piece of the oblique cylinder with a circular cross-section with the Revolve tool; apply a horizontal cut the both the top and bottom portion of the lateral piece; Creating the lateral piece of the oblique cylinder with a circular cross-section with the Contour Flange tool; apply a horizontal cut the both the top and bottom portion of the lateral piece. In this Module, the Revolve method will be explored.

2 Inventor (10) Module 1E: 1E- 2 Figure1E-1A: The orthographic Views, isometric view and flat pattern of an oblique cylinder with a circular cross-section. Step 1: Creating the lateral cylindrical piece with the Revolve tool Launch Inventor, start a new Sheet Metal (in).ipt part file under the English tab (Figure1E-1B). An Inventor sheet-metal file opens. Sketch1 is created by default in the Model panel on the XY Plane; rename the new sketch as Oblique Cylinder Profile in the Model panel; click the Look At tool button on the Command Bar and then the Oblique Cylinder Profile in the Model panel to switch to an orthographic normal view; clickselect the Project Geometry tool button from the Sketch tool panel, and then the Center Point feature under the Origin folder in the Model panel; the Center Point is projected onto the sketch to provide a snap point; next, select the Line tool, move the mouse closer to the projected Center Point, and click once when the green dot snap point indicator appears, then move the mouse rightward horizontally (with the help of the Horizontal short bar indicator) and click one at any convenient location on the screen; right-click for the Line tool s shortcut menu and choose the Restart option to draw another line; move the mouse upward vertically (with the help of the Perpendicular indicator) and click one at any convenient location on the screen; next, select the General Dimension tool and click the vertical line to apply a 36 in (inch) height dimension; next select the Line tool again, move the mouse cursor closer to the projected Center Point again and click
