Hi

I have an Ideas body conversion to NX:

- How to change bend radius R when using Cleanup Utility ?

- Now it takes the customer default's R1.4 automatically ?

- No box to enter the radius of the sheet ? How could this be ?

I have plate thickness=3mm and R3(same as sheet)

Resize Blend command of Synchronous Modeling can do the work.

@ruud_vandenbrand: Yes..Resize Bend Radius is available in Sheet metal application. I thought Synchronous modeling command can also be helpful.  Smiley Tongue

 

Resize Blend Radius gives accurate result and its the right command to use.

@GaneshKadole: i always preffered for this kind of changes the resize blend radius because it's also changing the inside/outside radius in one action.

Recommended workflow is:

1. Convert to Sheet Metal

2. Resize Bend Radius

3. (Optional) Resize Neutral Factor.
     This will give you the correct K factor for the flat pattern.
