Does anyone have any experience creating an evaporator model? You know, the thing in your fridge with the bosses all over it. My goal is to model it up as a flat part (sheet metal) and then bend it accordingly. My approach has been: creat a sheet say 10 x 40 . then sweep a profile on the face to create the ridge. shell the thickness of original sheet to create the void. mirror the features to create the chamber. make it a sheet metal part. attempt to bend it with a 1-2 in radius. no luck with the last.
I new before i got to the last item it was going to be too complex as i am attempting to fold material back on itself but i had to try. models and drawings avail if need TIA
