I picked a different fixed face see if you like the attached results
Personally I think it should give the correct results without choosing a different face, so I guess you would call this a workaround.
That was the first thing I tried and it is still wrong see jpeg attachment.
Have you edited the Flat-Pattern1 feature and chosen a different fixed face?
Can you upload the part?
Thanks for your help it would be nice if sw would not do that we are having to recut and bend parts because of this. would you know of a reason why this happened?
This is a problem of interpretation of CAD data for manufacturing.
The bend directions are not absolute in Solidworks. This is a big big problem.
You have to ensure that the fixed face of the flat pattern feature is a face which is your visually verifiable outer
face of the part.
Solidworks will alter this in the forthcoming release. I am pretty sure.
Have a look at my earlier post on this. Incorrect bend directions.
Also you will be confronted with the angle issue if your parts have angles other than 90 degrees.
You can follow the post on this as well.
