I receive an error in sheet metal parts " The radius of the bend fell outside of the bend allowance/deduction table, K factor will be used instead". Has anybody ever encountered this? and how can this be fixed?
Thanks in advance
It usually occurs when doing an edge flange, after I flatten and unflatten the model.
You'll probably need to post the Gauge Table you are using if it is not the default table.
We are also having this issue, could you please take a look at our Bend Table and let me know if there is anything wrong with it?
I just read on another post that the table should be in decending gage order, or thinner materials first.
The table is currently presented in that order, I am just re-creating our table to see if there was just an odd glitch created.
I initially had the table in thick to thin order, then went in and switched it around, then the problem arose.
Just tried the re-created table, problem still exists.
This is also in SolidWorks 2013 I should add...
You're right! I must need more coffee! I'll be watching for the right answer. Good luck!
Now I'm just curious why you wouldn't just use .5 as a K Factor as they are all .5 and skip the gage tables altogether. Perhaps there are some not shown that are a different K Factor?
We are wanting to ensure that there is only one option to use when bending sheet metal, but it looks like a 'K-Factor' table might do that.
I suppose we could use a 'K-Factor' Table instead and see if that solves the issue.
If they were all the same at .5 then you could just re-save your original part document template with a .5 K Factor and they all should open with that as a standard. Some companies require some certain standards so I could understand your reasoning.
