Hello every one I need help on bending a plate  I keep on getting the same message eventhough I change the ucs view

Here is how I do it :


Command: '_-view Enter an option
[?/Delete/Orthographic/Restore/Save/sEttings/Window]: _right Regenerating model.


Command: 3do
3DORBIT Press ESC or ENTER to exit, or right-click to display shortcut-menu.
Regenerating model.

Command: _RBCS_bentplate
Select plate(s) :1 found
Select plate(s) : Choose method [by2points/byLine]<by2points>:L
Select line: Location of bending line[Center/Edge] <Center>
Specify internal radius or [Axial] <0.125000>:
Specify angle <90.000000>
Pick side to be wrapped :
*** Cut plane does not intersect selected part #1 ***


I changed the view to all views to WORLD, TOP, BOTTOM, LEFT RIGHT, FRONT & BACK  but the error is always the same :  *** Cut plane does not intersect selected part #1 ***


Thank you very Much

I assume it just doesn't work?  I get the same results as described and have not been able to bend the plate.


Actually, after finally playing around with it quite a bit, and knowing I tried these exact same steps before, I was able to get the bend done.  Things to take note of:


The Z coordinate should be perpendicular to the face of plate.

180 degree bend is actually not a bend at all, but keeping it flat.

The radious should be .1 and go up from there to get your desired bend.


But at least it gets the job done...
