How can I model the forming process with pads to hold the blank while forming?


You can add the top or bottom pad to an existing forming process from the tool palette. To determine which surface the pad will hold, choose a corresponding area on the top die and designate it as a pad (use duplicate or partition) so it can hold the blank while the top die is forming. Use the same process for the bottom pad and cam pad. Define the force applied or maintain the gap.
