I would like to bend something flat using the flex tool. With the help of tutorials, I have already been able to bend one of the angles(angle a at 90°) but then I cant bend the others because the axis and planes shift afterwords....Does anyone have any advice? Here is pdf that shows what I want to achieve.... question.pdf
Using Inventor 2013 I cant to add a flange to a slightly twisted sheet metal part. I created the part by lofting between two lines from a 3d sketch. Then thickened to my sheet metal default thickness. Then i coverted part to sheet metal. I can create a flat pattern. I am trying to add the flange to one of the straight edges that the loft was created from. There is no twist on this edge. I also need flanges on the twited sides but for now the straight sides will do. I also tried to unfold thinking i could add the flanges and refold but i cant unfold the twisted part. Thanks any help would be great.
