Good day everyone, with this topic I would like to see if we are the only one with this reqeust. Also if possible I would like to gather as much support from the community as I can get ofcource. This case is 1 out of 2 of our biggest wishes in our wishlist in Solid Edge.

Problem case

For this problem I took an project that was easy to compare. These two projects have the most resemblances with each other, to have the best case with improving lofted flange.

Autocad: Produced cone from an lisp that gave the bending line and angle.

The lisp has been made approx 15years ago, and till today SE doesn't provide any information about bending lines within the lofted flange.

 

I have tested it in ST10, and because of that I now would like some opinions from the community.

Hi Edgers,

 

Just wondering would anyone help me to find the way how to add the bendline angles to the flat drawing ?

 

as @Sander-NL mentioned, the bend table tells only about 2 sequences (1 and 2 one the drawing ).

 

Thank you

The only thing is that practical 4 times 22degr is wrong with bends from square to round. Man Wink.

You are right , I don't do a lot of completely square to round  mostly round to round .Sometimes flat to round 

which will give me a Lofted Flange : No Data error do to the fact that the angle will change 

from one end of the bend to the other . I agree that it would be nice to have a more robust solution

to lofted flange bend info.
