I have been using Pro/E for about 9 years now. I also use Solid Works as well. I work in a shop where we use bend deductions to calculate flat patterns. In Solid Works, you have the option to enter a bend deduction for any bend no matter what radius it is modeled in. In Pro/E I have to manipulate the "y" factor to get the bend deduction that I want it to come out to. That works okay but why not have the option in Pro/E to enter a bend deduction on any bend without having to change the modeled bend radius. We get Pro/E models from some of our customers and it is a pain to have to manipulate the "Y" factors and bend radius to get it to come out to what we need. It just would be nice if Pro/E had a bend deduction option.
Thanks Joel!! I know you can do that but that isn't the same as assigning a bend deduction. In SolidWorks, no matter what size bend radius the model has, you can assign a bend deduction for all bends or for individual bends and you don't have to change anything in the model. That is very usefull when we get models from our customers and they have inconsistant bend radii, we wouldn't have to change anything on their model to get it to turn out a correct flat for our shop.
