"Flatten" Sheet Metal Icon Greyed Out

Wednesday March 23, 2016 at 9:09am

This was a new problem that I had not come across before on SOLIDWORKS. I was unable to select the “Flatten” icon due it being greyed out.

However I was still able to flatten the sheet metal part by un-suppressing the “Flat-Pattern1” feature in my feature tree.

The reason for the “Flatten” icon being greyed out was because the sheet metal part had a “Flat Pattern” annotation view and this annotation view was active.

By selecting another annotation view, the “Flatten” icon then becomes available again.
