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

Question asked by Kody Spaberg on Jul 11, 2018

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?
