whats this mean ?
i draw a flat surface to add some bend lines ,draw on the lines and try to convert them into bends but i get the above message ?
how do i correct the problem ??
hei'ya Joe, hard to tell what's going on without a scrnshot or file, but my guess is
you have a sketch that cann't be converted to sheet metal/folded due to its shape or
restraints. FWIW try:-
select (from sheetmetal tools) base flange/tab>
select plane and sketch outer contour>
set base flange thickness/and other options>
this is the base flange you want to add the sketched bend to ..
select (from sheetmetal tools) sketched bend>
select a planar surface to sketch the bend on>
sketch the bend line (you can have multiple disjointed ie single lines, remember that the fold acts on each)
select fixed face/surface and other options ie bend position and conditions>
see if this helps dude, if not post a file or scrnshot so we can see your sketch conditions
have a good'n kelef
yeah i noticed that when i run the bend line over the edge of the outline it seems to work ok 'sometimes' but then on others it doesnt work .
must be some minor detail i am not adhering to .
archives have this message referred to previously i see
