Help on offseting flange using Sheet Metal

Hello,

 

I'm trying to make this part on Sheet Metal, and I have to offset this flange at 28 degree that meet 0.37". The thickness is 0.12". Currently, the only method that I know how to meet that 0.37" is by playing around (guess and check) with the number in picture 3. Do you guy know any other methods to create this offset part.

 

Thanks,

Bach

Hi bachxuanguyen,

 

Can you use the Contour Flange tool as is used the attached example parts?

 

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
