Bend after forming?

Question asked by Andy Bowden on Feb 23, 2012

I've attached a picture of a frame in which I'm trying add a bend feature after a couple embossing forming features(and finally a cut extrude to get the flanges cut out).  After experimenting a little, I'm led to believe that Solidworks won't allow me to bend these flanges after forming.  Can anyone confirm that this is the case?  If so, what's the best way to add these bent flanges?

 

BTW, depending on which approach I take, I either get a "disjoint line" error or a "Solidworks failed to make the sketched bend".

 

Thanks,

Andy
