    Knowing what angle bend line needs to be at to achieve correct plane plane

    Kody Spaberg

      Is there any way for solidworks to aid in finding where I bend line needs to be angled in order to get in the correct plane. If not solidworks, maybe a bit of math. To explain better (as I don't have a part I can share), say from the side view of the sheet metal part you have a 'Z' type profile with two bends at 45deg. But the outer two parts of the sheet metal (upper and lower part of Z) are not parallel and are 2 deg out of plane from each other. The center part isnt critical as far as what angle it is relative to the others.

       

      Any suggestions?
