The PropertyManager for the Convert to Sheet Metal command includes the options for Rip Edges Found (Read-Only) and Rip Sketches. Sometimes it may not be clear what or if anything needs to be selected in these sections. Often, there is nothing to select; these options are to be used if needed.
A rip in sheet metal is inserted if required by design and manufacturing. The slit can go along an existing edge or a sketch line. The following examples show three simplified scenarios of the SOLIDWORKS Sheet Metal Rip Options:
Example #1: Rip not required
Example #2: Rip selection is automatically populated after selecting first three edges
Example #3: Rip is based off a sketch that has been added by a designer
