How to use SW 2D drawing to form parts

Question asked by Frederick Wolf on Jun 6, 2009
Latest reply on Jun 10, 2009 by Frederick Wolf

I have a sheetmetal forming company, and recently several customers have provided me with SW 2 D drawings that only provide dimensions to some feature in the bend (maybe center of bend radius), angle of bend, direction of bend, and radius of bend. I have to go back and ask them to dimension the formed drawing in x,y, and angles.

This is time consuming and I suspect if I can learn how to use these drawings in setting up the backgage dimensions that my setups will be much quicker.

What I need is information on how to use the SW 2D drawings to actually make real parts. Can anyone help or point me to a resource that can help?

Thanks much
