I modelled an enclosure with some lances on a edge flange. I created a plane offset from the top of the flange 0.807" and created my lances on this plane. When I "flatten" my sheetmetal part - the lances have moved 0.065. This planar offset has changed. I inserted the sheetmetal feature after finishing modelling - (I guess creating this problem) but why would my offset change? I created this offset from the top of the flange - it should not matter what radius I am using to create the bend? I guess I am missing something here?
The planar offset stays the same (in the flat)if you create a sheetmetal part from the get go. Why the difference?
