Hello all, this is my first post here.. I'm running Solid Edge ST9 and creating a chute for the end of a sand hopper. Attached is an image of the entire chute as an assembly. I've got the transition like i need it and i have it in two halves, all i need help with is bend detail. In a draft the bend table only pulls 4 main bend points and i cant get anymore information. I've attached the file im working with, hopefully you guys can open it and toy with it. If not and i need to translate the file type to something else let me know.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've worked with that. I have it set to 5 where i want it. What i'm really trying to figure out is how to call out the bend detail in a draft? How do i know what to bend each triangulated line to to get the shape i want?
But here comes the real problem.
The first thing the shop will want is back gage setting for the break/folder whatever.
This can be presented in draft, but is not easy.
Also worth note, unless your model uses the bend radius the machine actually creates, the flat pattern will have problems durring fabrication.
If your flat cutting tool can also mark the bend lines on the part, that can help tons.
