I have a pipe that gets flattened at its end and mounted to a 3mm thick wall structure with three bolts.
Pipe ext dia 12mm I guess at the aluminium pipe wall as being 1mm (unknown and no means of finding out.)
Just wondering how do I flatten the end of the pipe over a distance of 15mm, thickness and breadth of squish being what reality would be. So if 1mm gauge aluminium then 2mm thick and breadth would be just less than half the circumference .
Is there a flatten command which would see the pipe develop out to its normal diameter beyond the squish ?
Do I have to use pipe command to create a hollow pipe for this to work ?
pipe attached and its flat area.
