I am recreating a lower portion of a sheet metal hand sink. (also known as a skirt). It was modeled in pro and flat pattern created in PROE.
I was not able to convert to sheet metal, due to the way it was created in proe. Edges touching, and just basically fudged
I used the original flat pattern to get the base shape and used sketched bends to fold it in 4 places, then add the top and bottom flanges
The issue I am running into is that since body has several lofted style bends at an angle it creates a radii which wont allow me to use a single mitre flange along the top
Using multiple edge bends sort of works, but I now i have to play with 3 different gap adjustments, corner features to try to get it all close to minimal gap. i'd rather have sw treat it as 1 single mitre and let it handle the gap and reliefs
another option i'm thinking is to figure out of there is a way to draw the whole section profile, then insert sketch bends and bend the whole thing in 4 places.
