Bend Radius Problem

Discussion created by Guest on Oct 19, 2006
When I start a flexible non-orthogonal tube route and type in a minimum radius value for it (in this case 5inches) Solidworks routing doesn’t seem to use this value at all. I can go down to .75inch radius before it complains about violating the minimum bend radius. When I switch to orthogonal and enter the minimum bend radius there it applies it. Why is the minimum radius field even there in the start route dialog when it’s value seems to do absolutely nothing?
Thanks in advance,
