Failure in double bend?

     I'm trying to work a bit with some sheet metal concepts, & in coming to this part in the attached pdf of figure 8-26, SW doesn't seem to allow for the

complex radius in the vertical bends. I think it's because of the radii going in the two directions.

   I guess bottom line is I've attached an attempt of mine to start with a flat sheet, & incorporate the bends, but there's failure in the part. I've tried to move things

around in the f.m. but it doesn't seem to be working. I believe having the radius for the one bend, & the radius for the other coming together is probably the cuprit

for the problem.

   Bottom line I guess would be what's the best way to create this part in the SW sheet metal tools? This would be created in the real world, so how do you

duplicate the process in SW?

       Thks, in advance for any input
