I am new to rhino and need a little help understanding how to work with sheet metal. Almost everything I do is with made up of sheets of metal. The final product is 3d but they are made from 2d sheets of metal cnc cut on a plasma table.
In this example I have drawn an octagon which would be made up of 5 sheet metal, 2 end caps all of them 1/4" thick.
Here are the steps on how I created it
_cap (because I could not shell)
Something isnt quite right as rhino treats the “2nd wall” (from 1/4" _shell) separate from the original.
What commands should I research so that the inside and the outside are one plate instead of 2?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me
