Is it possible to plan torispherical tops on inventor?

I did not succeed in my attempts.

Accepted answer

Hi Rodrigo.

You cannot do this in the Sheet metal environment because the material is being deformed. Sheet metal allows for Bends, which it calculates using a K-Factor, your Dome is not going to flatten, as the material is being distorted on 2 planes.

You could use the Unwrap command in Inventor (2020 version onwards), to flatten the dome once you have created the geometry.
