How can I use two lofted bends in one part?

Question asked by Dougal Hiscock on Feb 20, 2014

I'm trying to create what is essentially a sheet-metal claw.  Now by hand (i.e. paper template) this isn't that difficult.  But I can't find a way to get solidworks to create it.

 

I can create the whole thing as a solid or surface easily, but I cannot convert it to sheet-metal.  In sheetmetal I can create it with one claw, but it won't let me add the second lofted bend. 

Note this part is not symmetrical.  I have another part of the same fabrication which is symmetrical and using the mirror function that worked fine.

 

I'm working in Solidworks 2009.  Any help appreciated.
