Easiest Way to Add Bend

I have come across this more than once and I wanted some other users feedback.


When you need to make a bend on an edge, but not the entire edge, what is the easiest way to go about this accurately?


I am reverse engineering plenty of parts for 'eye candy' and i come across this often and need to keep it pretty accurate like the rest of the part.


Attached is a screen shot of what I have so far.  The top edge (highlighted) has bend on about 3/4 of it that bends in the negative Z direction.


I have used the sketched bend, and a few other sheet metal tools to do this in the past, but sometimes it can be a pain with not the entire edge bending.


Thanks everyone.
