What am I doing wrong? I am trying to fold the attached sheet metal part that is created from an imported ACAD drawing. After cleaning up the sketch I created the face and then created a sketch with the first bend line on it, but when I attempt to flod the part it will not sellect the bend line. I have attempted selecting the line before selecting fold and that does not help. I have placed the sketch both on the part surface and the datum plane. The only line I can get fold to select are the two ends of the part but I don't see how anything could be bent off the end of the part.
Can someone enlighten me as to what obvious thing I am missing?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The bend line cannot extend past the part.. You need to project those 2 arcs and make the line stop on each of those..Then it selects fine..
Thank you guys. I knew it must be something simple.
Again it is a habbit left from SW. If my line extends past the edges of the part and the part changes so the bend line is over the flat end rather than the radius, the part will not fail as it would here.
