Lofted-Bend - Bent option adding extra bend

Discussion created by Peter Kennedy on Jun 2, 2020

I'm working on a sheet metal part and I'm having issues with a lofted bend using the Bent manufacturing method. It's 2 bends however when I use the lofted bends it adds a third bend across the face:

 

 

I can cheat and make the top plate then use the edge flange function to make the remaining faces and it works with no problems. However we need to constantly need to change the sizing for this component and if this lofted bends works correctly it would eliminating the tedious need of making edge flanges and adjust face profiles.
