I think Solidworks miscalculates flat pattern if bend radius is set to 0

Question asked by Dmitri Safonov on May 27, 2020

I made a simple flange "U" shape with three equal 2" inside dimensions. I set the custom material thickness to .625 and bend radius to 0, and when I go to flat pattern I was expecting the overall width to be 6" with bend lines to be set at 2" exactly. However it gives me an overall dimension of 6.01 and the bend lines are something like 2.05. Now, I realize that inside bend radius can't be 0, but if Solidworks allows it to be set shoudn't it calculate accordingly?
