What you will learn
Does your company design sheet metal parts? Do you need a better understanding of how to model those
parts using sheet metal design? If so, then this hands-on session is for you. We will walk through step by
step modeling sheet metal using Solid Edge ST7. We will look at tools that will take a part model and
convert it into sheet metal, and how synchronous sheet metal will help you create sheet metal faster and
easier than you ever have in the past.
