sheet metal help

I am using wf3. I am trying to make partially rolled piece of sheetmetal with a 90 degree bend on one end. How does one go about making this type of part? Thus far I have been making the rolled section first but then as far as i can see their is no command to let me add the 90 degree bend. thanks

RE: sheet metal help

Hi James, First create the partially rolled part by sketching, and extruding with a thickness. To attach the 90 degree bend, you'll have to unbend the part, attach the bend as normal, and then bend the part back again. Hope this helps, Dan Cook

This is an alternative I've had to use; Add a short line to the end of the curve in your sketch. The only requirement is that it be just longer than the bend radius and thickness of the sheet. Rodney WF3 M140
