Bending Tips

Below are a few tips to consider in designing parts with bends.

Provide for allowance – it is better for pieces to be a bit loose than to not fit at all.

For two-part enclosures it is generally advisable to add at least some overhang.

To specify the general radius of bends choose Job | Settings | Specifications: Bend.

You can specify helical twists.

You can approximate a model of a curved sheet or a large radius bend by making several parallel bends, each of a small angle.
