Can i bend two piece of sheet metal in an assembly?
I have the two sheets attached to a box on one end and i would like them to meet at the other end.
Here is a picture:
Any help would be much appreciated!! -Dan
Why not make only 1 bent part, and just (copy it/mirror/insert) on the other side?
You can insert a "New Component" in your assembly. Go Insert/Component/New Part, save your part and pick the end of the box shown as the plane to place your sketch. Sketch your shape and insert Sheet Metal Bend feature, add the thickness and length of extrude
Thanks for the reply john, I'm a little confused on how to sketch out this part. IN the assembly, i select insert new part, and it asks me to select a face to sketch on.. where on the box should i click? what should i sketch? and to loft the bend wouldn't i need two sketches to simulate the curve?
You just need to click on one face of one block.
Are you trying to make a U shape or??? Not really clear what you want for the final pc.
Look at this, I inserted a sketched bend in the sheet metal part at the assy level.
