Cannot make part flexible

I want to attach ligament in a static assembly of knee joint. I have 3d scanned the ligament and transferred to creo. Now to bend it and attach to the bone I decided to make it flexible. But when I try to make it flexible I cannot choose any dimensions. Kindly tell me what am I doing wrong or suggest any other method through which I could bend the ligament and attach it to the required point ( I need to keep the length of ligament as it is). A picture of the scenario is given in the attachment.

Thank you for your help in advance.

Re: Cannot make part flexible

Make flexible <> plastic deformation.

 

You might try a spinal bend. http://support.ptc.com/help/creo/creo_pma/usascii/#page/part_modeling%2Fpart_modeling%2Fpart_five_su...

 

This is only an approximation and doesn't represent deformation that will actually happen. I don't know if it applies to scanned data.

Thanks for your reply. Spinal bend worked.

Hi, I was hoping you would be able to send me on the drawing files or codes for your knee joint assembly as I am doing a project on the knee and will have to make a similar assembly to yours. Hoping to hear back from you soon.

Thanks,
