I am having a hard time figuring how I need to model this bracket in order to be able to still get a flat pattern. It is particularly tricky since the bends aren't perpendicular to the reinforcing flange.
That part is a stamped part made on a progressive die. I sincerely doubt it could be made on a brake press. Solidworks will not unbend this part. You would need and after market program like logopress to unbend it and get a flat blank. If you send me a parasolid of the part I can probably get you a flat blank.
I'd say you're going to have to form that, not bend it, but it's difficult to tell from the singular view.
That is stamping - rather than sheet metal forming/bending
To fabricate that in a Sheet Metal Brake Press you would need to notch and weld the component together
Without some more pictures and dimensions it's a little difficult to see all the features
Basically the flange on the edge is bent perpendicular to the base before the angled bends are put in. the cross bends are at about 40 degrees
I just did a quick mock up - and on each side of the hole is a triangle area where the material over laps - again the only way to make that pc without notching bending and welding is stamping -
It looks like, if it was created through bending that the edge on the long side was the first bend, than the acute two bends were done after. Hence why the bend lines look kind of smushed in the pics.
