We just got our fancy new pressbrake. Now I'm needing to see if I can have the bend angle callouts on the drawing show up differently. I basically need it to give me (180°-%BN) but I can't seem to get it to allow me to run that formula in the callout. Is there any way to do what I am needing so the guys can enter in to the pressbrake the bend angle without them having to do any math? For instance, I have a square to round transition that is modeled as a half, and it has 24 bends in it. The %BN callout says 3.8°. I need it to give me 176.2° instead. Can this be done?
Doesn't work, tried that. It just returns an angle of 90° on every single bend. I also tried %BA which returns -3.7°.
See below. The only thing I've been able to do that gives me it was in the part model creating a variable that was 180-180/( LoftedFlange_2_DivideBendCount *2) which gave me what I was needing. But would have to create this every single time I do a part, which doesn't work for me.
Yeah....THAT is messed up.
Has to be a bug. Submit it to GTAC for analysis, and hopefully, explanation.
Welcome to my world. I have to manually create bend table for everything I draw,
The angles I have to do manually. But that's not the worst of it for me. I have to calculate back gage and stick out for every bend. So I have to create variables and use annotation to display bend tables. Not cool, but I have not choice.
