Creating an "outside dimensioned" L-Profile with the Flange feature


Hi all,


We sometime come across following type of flange:

E.g. L-profile; inside bend angle 135°, both flanges with outside dimensions need to be e.g. 100mm to the virtual intersection point.


I can't find a way to do this in NX.


In an old software we used to use for 3D CAD (Radan) we would do it like this:

Any thoughts on this?
