Bend Modeling

When designing parts with bends where the parts must fit together, it is important to verify, on screen, that parts fit properly, that holes align, etc. The Job | Model Bends command helps you do so by creating a side view drawing of the bends. You can use the side view to:

Note that:

For mating parts, slide the side views on screen (and rotate if needed) to see if parts mate properly. For new or changed complex designs it is recommended to do a short run initially.

Some odd or complex shapes can confound the bend model computation.  If the bend model is clearly off, try copying your design to a separate file, simplifying the shape to a simple rectangle and generating the bend model on the simplified shape.
