I am trying to figure out the process for bending the attached part. 1 part is the central tube, and the other part is a wing that will wrap around the tube and be welded 1/8 inch beflow the lip of the tube curve. Currently we weld this part manually, so I know it is possible, I just do not know the proper method of bending it in Solidworks. I have tried many different things from changing the bend line angles, the bend amount etc. If anyone can take a lokk at it and show me how to do this, or even share any ideas they may have on how I may accomplish this I would truly appreciate it as we are trying to see how far out the wing sticks from the tube for a clearance check. Thank you.
