I haven't had much experience with the flex tool - whenever I have used it outside of the basic tutorials I've gotten weird results so clearly I'm not using it correctly. I do however think it will be the best option for achieving what I want to see.
Whilst modelled as sheetmetal with a sketched bend, the attached part shown below works fine however once I add the raised treadplate pattern it obviously becomes unsolvable. I don't need the solid pattern for the manufacturing drawing as I know I can use a cosmetic pattern and notes to illustrate the surface with the tread, however purely as an educational exercise and a visual representation in the GA, I want to try and show the part as it would look once bent.
Could someone have a go at bending just the highlighted fork of the part up at 10 degrees? I can then see how you set things up to learn for the future.
FYI we're still using SW2017 here unfortunately.
Thanks in advance.
