    And heres where im at with the drawing
    004.JPG
    The blue line is the line the program tells me to draw indicating where i want the bend.

    JD what your saying is i need to draw the part as it will be formed and then flatten it to get my 2D image?

    Here are a couple of solutions.
    Notice the differences in the chamfered bend corners - AutoCAD users (particularly 2D) miss these subtle differences in sheet metal.

    I couldn't read your dimensions - so I just made some up.
    Edit Sketch1 to see that it is simply two lines, then use Countoured Flange to create the part.

    Eureka!

    I think my problem was in extruding the part instead of using the face feature in the sheetmetal toolbar. I can bend the part now.

    One thing i did notice tho is i didnt see a way to indicate how thick i want the part in the face setting.

    See the Sheet Metal Defaults icon - upper right corner of your screen - that sets the material thickness.

    good morning. i have just read though this thread and i am struggling to do something similar with one key difference. we are currently building a (narrow) backhoe bucket. the bottom is made from a piece of 48 x 7 x 3/4" steel with an oval cut out of it for a hook to hang through. the piece then gets bent (we call it rolled, or broke) to create a curve to match the sides. my problem is that the cut-out oval is in the curve, and i cant figure out how to do this. i am very new to 2011, upgrading from 07LT, and this website has been crucial to me learning to do what i have. thanks in advance for any help.
