So it is. I got it to bend. Is there a way to "flatten" that out now for placement on a drawing showing the full length of the part then?
Use two parts. one flat part, then derive the flat part and apply the bend to it.
For most things I just use a sheet metal part that is .250 thk. x .2501 wide and add .250 fillets to all edges. Leaves a tiny .0001 flat but that causes me no problem for most of the things I do.
Hello you previously replied to a bending problem that I was concerned about. On your reply you sent an attachment that I can not veiw. The soild bar is turned off or blacked out and my co-worker and I have tried and we cannot seem to make it visable. The other person responding to my inquiry seemed to able to view it. If you could please resend the attachment explaining how to bend a rod/round bar it would be greatly appreciated.
I'm guessing that you need to pull the End Of Part back down to the bottom of the browser. Saving it with the EOP at the top of the tree makes all the geometry invisible, but also makes the file size much smaller for posting to the forum.
Open the file within Inventor, in the Browser Bar, drag the EOP marker (looks like a Stop-Sign) down to the bottom fo the features within the Browser.
Makes file smaller for up & down loading.
FYI - Saving with the EOP in a rolled up state significantly reduces the file size.
