Showing bend order of tube.

Question asked by Matt Juric on Sep 25, 2019

So I have a tube something like the below. It is created using a 3D sketch. I wanted to show the bend order so we would not run into problems on our bending machine. How *I* did it was to just have three different sketches in the same part at the three different stages. I'm just wondering if there would be a more elegant way to do this. I was thinking of modify the dimensions using configs but radii disappear, dimensions cease to exist and so on so I thought that would be more work than my approach.

 

I started wondering this because if this was a more complex tube, say something with 10-20 bends this would have been a pain the way I did it.
