Can a press brake bend a part like this? My intuition tells me no, but i'm hoping that you guys might know something that i don't. They would have to put the backstop at different offsets to accommodate the angle of the parts. Let me know if you guys know of any alternatives if this isn't possible. 

and this

Edit: I figure i would come back and edit this post and let you guys know what my solution was (in case someone else out there in the future is having the same problem i did). 

 

So I took the advice of the people in the thread and ended up adding tabs so it looked liked this

the red lines are parallel. 

Our fabricator said he had no problem bending this and then cutting the tabs off.
