I am trying to fold a part from an imported DXF file and unable to get the center or my bend on the fold lines.  I am able to get the start and end of the bend on the fold line.  I am using Inventor 2012

Do you know the desired finished shape?
Why not design in finished form rather than folding up?

I have been able to get it finshed at a different material thickness and with the bends at the beginngs or end on the lines.  The DXF is coming from a CNC program and we are reverse engineering it for some applications.
