Hallo,


maybe the problem occurs earlier in the process?

 

The corner man can see already will not be able to be flattend at all.

 

I tried a similar situation using a hem feature and SE will make it al edges arround.

I end up using ordered sketches of flats that include the flat for the hem and have lines in the sketch for use of the bend command down stream. When adding the bend, 0 deg (180 deg), and 0 radius (very very small).

Hello Wolfgang

 

With the hem feature you refer to, how do I set the hem raduis in the opposite direction ?

I find that I can't change cirections on flanges, delete and re-do.

Hi,



direction is based on the selected edge, AFAIK
