Bend line manipulation in drawings question

Bend line manipulation in drawings question

HI,

I have a part that you can see below. I created 2 flanges and joined them together with a planar feature. It works great in the model. Now when I am creating the print, the bend line is a single bend line across the part, which makes sense since it really should be bent at the same time. However, I want to delete the part of the line that is going over the part that is not being bent because I'm pretty sure that at some point, one of my brake operators is going to see the line all of the way across and bend up the flat part too. I can't get two bend lines to show up, and I can't get the sketch features to snap to the line in the drawing. Any ideas on how to make two separate lines in the drawing?

Thanks,

Brandon

Can't you just use the "break" functionality in the drawing module? It's under "Annotate->Break", in Creo 2.0. You pick two points and the region between them is "blanked out". We use this all the time.

Not sure on the answer - will suggest you could also get the part back with only the little tab bent up, if they are able to ignore the note. Doesn't the trimetric head off this problem?

You would think.................... experience shows otherwise enough to be worried about it.

Hello Brandon,

my solution is following:

Create a second datum axis THROUGH a flat feater bend axis.
