Sheet Metal Flatten - Missing Bodies

When working with sheet metal, it is possible to notice that flattening your component may hide or remove bodies. This is due to a limitation of the flatten tool, as the flat pattern is only meant to be used on a single sheet metal body.


Components that are not part of the selected body are hidden from the flat pattern view.

You will need to remove multi-body sheet metal parts, and create the component in one sheet metal piece if you wish to have the entirety of the component flattened into one flatten feature.
