Hello All,
I'm fairly new to sheet metal and was trying to find a solution to this fork leg.
It is 7ga sheet metal.
The first problem is along the main base I have a flange that transitions to a hem. I drew this as 2 separate features and lofted them together. Is there an easier way of doing this?

2nd. At the front I have a Tab that should be at a 5 degree angle with flanges that go from 90 to 45 degrees as I have drawn. The problem is I drew it flat, because I kept getting errors saying I cannot draw a sheet metal part that is not paralell to the base part.
I created a separate plane and drew it on there then extruded it but could not convert it to the sheet metal part. this feature is suppressed.

I realize this would be easier to understand with a drawing but I'm being told i cannot upload a file of this type. 08 SW part.
This is my first post do I need permission to upload files?

Thanks for any help.
Chris
