I need to model a handle that's made from a 2 x 13" piece of nylon strap. Center section is folded in on itself from both sides to make 3 layers and sewn for 5 inches to form a gathered grip. When attached the end parts are flat. To model this in SW requires bending and stretching which I'm not seeing in my available tools. I tried lofting the part and can get a so/so representation. Would like it to be a lot more realistic. If I could bend it in sheet metal to make the center and then unfold just 2-3" on both ends that would be near perfect.
Attached is my lofted part so you can see what I mean a little better. I couldn't make it come out quite right but you'll get the idea I think.
