The most recent update to Onshape includes one of our most highly-requested improvements: the ability to create sheet metal hems. Let’s take a closer look.

To get started, click the Hem feature from the list of sheet metal tools in the toolbar.

Then select an edge or side face of a sheet metal part, and define the details of your hem. There are three hem types to choose from:

1. “Straight” hem

2. “Rolled” hem

3. “Teardrop” hem

There are also options to define the hem's length, inner radius, alignment, and corner type. These options give you a wide range of potential hem styles.

So that’s it! This new feature was a highly-requested one and we couldn’t be more excited to bring it to you.
