How to model this Joggled sheet in Catia V5 Sheet Metal Design or Aerospace Sheet Metal Module?

How to model this Joggled sheet in Catia V5 Sheet Metal Design or Aerospace Sheet Metal Module?

(OP)
Trying to model a surface/web with corner joggle on both sides. Best to illustrate it with a picture.



What I've omitted from the above drawing is the fillets that I want near the joggle i.e. in the sectional views, I want fillets on both sides of the joggles. Did not show it in the drawing because it is tedious to draw it in Word. The offset distance I am thinking right now is around the value of the plate thickness (0.080in).

So far, I've been able to create a surface stamp with parameters as shown below



The fillets on the inside (R1, R2) is missing and also if I reduce the height to equal to sheet metal thickness (0.080in), Catia V5 gives me an error. If I try to include even a small radius value other than zero, Catia gives me an error of not being able to compute the fillets between the stamp & its support.

Just to give additional info, I made a closed rectangular sketch of the outlines where I want the stamps/joggles & used Surface Stamp command.

Hoping to get some tips on how to model the above.

hi, you cannot place a surface stamp in a corner...
model it in the middle of a sheet, use a cut-out to retain the quarter you want.

Green light on lidar: Developing low cost systems for autonomous vehicles
Lidar has been around for quite some time, but to date, it’s been custom—and expensive. Right now, there isn’t a clear-cut solution that’s suitable for all applications, such as lidar in autonomous vehicles. As they explore options, optical and mechanical engineers are forced to make choices and tradeoffs during the design process. Download Now
