I have a part that needs to be formed rather than bent. The blank dimensions are all we have and it is much easier to put the hole patterns in the blank rather than the formed part. The "formed part" is what I've done so far, but as you can see from the side it produces somewhat of a u shape. What I would like to do is take the "formed bend" and form the part from the blank than to create the formed part and unfold. Any think will help as I have exhausted all of my options (not sure which way is the best way).
I am using solidworks 2018.
