Wrinkle bend a tube

Hello All,

I have the task of creating a tube that has a wrinkle bend instead of a stretch bend. The only way I could figure out how to do this was to take the die information create surfaces on my 3d model of my tube (prior to shelling). My plan is to do a shell function after I have removed the surfaces from my model.

In other softwares I have worked with we had a function called boolean remove. I have created my surfaces and would now like to remove them from my model. Can someone please tell me what SW calls this function.

I have attached my file (SW8.0) in case anyone has any better suggestions on how to create a tube with wrinkled corners, or does not understand my rambling

Thanks in advance for the help.

Misty
