im trying to get these two triangle parts to fold 90 degrees
i cannot use a sketch bend as it wants to bend the entire edge
Can you offer a solution??
How can I attach a file to a forum post?
Like this, or what?
no not like that .....so that they are parallel with the edge flange.........so sitting horizontal if that makes sense
Without seeing your tree it's hard to tell, but I don't see why a sketched bend wouldn't work.
You can make a sketched bend from multiple lines, just skip over the tabs you don't want to bend.
i think this is the problem ......the tabs (triangle sections) i DO want to bend with the edge flange........
ive managed to do this using two sketch bends - its close but not quite right
have attached the file if you want to try
Is this what you're looking for?
YES absolutley ........ok so how??
Exactly as Kevin and I said, split the bend line in the sketch.
The updated part is attached.
Trim your sketch bend sketch so that it doesn't pass across the triangles:
thanks all for your help ....makes sense once i see it done
