I am wondering if there is a way to take a structural member andbend it at a point.  What I am doing is make a 15% bend in a3x3 piece of HSS.  What they have done it in the shop is toput a pie shaped relief cut in the back of the tube up to theinside of the front edge and then bend it till the edges touch andweld it.  I would like to be able to detail this in a drawingbut I can't figure out how to do this in one piece so it is oneitem in a cut list.

Any help would be appreciated


Thank you
