Overlapping Unmerged Edge Flange

Hello All!

 

I need some help with Edge Flanges.

I finally was able to have the flanges come out by adding relief cuts, but i am still having issues.

See attached pictures.

 

The first picture shows what im trying to do. From the two posts i need a complete circular pattern that connects the two posts.

I was able to accomplish this using a single Edge Flange operation from the two edges, where each edge takes up half of the circle.

I was able to get the correct geometry by inserting relief cuts as shown in the 2nd picture.

 

The problem i am having is that where the two flanges meet in the middle of the circle i get an error. The two flanges "overlap" even though they end at the same place.

Ideally i would like to have this portion of the model to be a solid part. But i would like to get rid of the error anyway.

 

The error: "The Part Intersects itself after bend operations"

Is there anyway to merge these two sections of the same flange operation?

 

Thanks.
