Preview looks fine, yet cannot create unbend?

Is there a way to force it to work? I don't care if the result is perfect or not

I get this quite a bit converting to sheet metal or even when just creating blends. The preview shows me a visually acceptable result, yet it errors out.

Hi @R_Newcomb,

Can you provide a part that it fails on so I can take a look?

thanks

@R_Newcomb,

 

Can you try the following;

 

  • fit the complete model on your screen.
  • Start the unbend feature
  • select the stationary edge or face
  • Use CTRL-A to select all the bends (even when you only want one bend unbent)
  • OK or apply.

Does this work?

I try to give that a shot this afternoon,

When I went to send the part to Gtac Saturday I wouldn't even go as far as showing me the Preview.
I ended up coming up with an alternate solution of course, but I still plan on sending this one into Dave to look at.
