different degree flange question.

I've attached a pdf of a part I'm making the flat pattern for.

The pdf is from our customer, and I already know it's not shown correctly, views wrong, etc.

One bend is 90 degrees and the other is 88 degrees.

What I'm having trouble with, is when I go to put flanges on my part, the corner does not come out as it should be.

The long flange does not have the 2 degrees of material added to it, and even though I have told it to tear the corner, it still puts a big relief when I put the second flange on.

I have searched the help and can't seem to find what I'm looking for.

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi sps_cad_guy,

 

Attached is a quick example file.

There might be more efficient ways to get the same result but this is what came to mind, and should serve as an example of some of the tools that can be used.

 

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

Thank you so much Curtis!

That looks perfect.

I knew there had to be an easier way to do it that what I was doing.

Thanks again for your help.
