Multiple bodies are supported in Sheetmetal Design starting with Creo 7.0. Enhanced capabilities for Sheetmetal that are related to multibody design includes converting a selected single Basic Solid body to a Sheet Metal body.

Note: During this operation the regular part is converted to a sheet metal part.

In addition to the Model tab there is a Sheetmetal tab. New and existing commands dedicated to interacting with sheet metal and solid bodies are provided in the Sheetmetal tab and the Model tab.

Limitations: Limitations apply for the insert hardware use case because there is no dedicated support for a Windchill connected environment relating to the management of WTparts and Bills of Material (BOMs).

User Interface: When working in Sheetmetal, right-click a body.
