    sheet metal flat pattern not showing properly

    Varun Sharma

      I have a part I am designing that isnt showing its true flat pattern shape in solid works. I need to properly show where the actual bends will take place and one of the edges is showing a very short bend which I feel can confuse the machinist. All i did was click the flat pattern option and imported it into solidworks but one of the edges is not showing properly.

       

       

      as you can see the sheet metal is bent in 3 ways on the left side of the picture but on the right side is the flat pattern that is shown but that top section of flat pattern is too small and should showing the whole dimension. Any advice on how to fix it?
