Hi Joris,



You very simnply can solve that using a contour flange for the large arc, which becomes the base of the U-profile, followed by 2 contour flanges for the sides.

 

If You do this in sequential mode Solid Edge will bring You a proper result for the flat.

... by the way:

 

 

ST7 will flatten everything within part.

There is a new flat function!

Thanks!

Your first option works perfect. We use ST7, I tried other things, but no result.
