poss Bug bend extension Re: Sheet metal Jog

11-06-2011 11:40 AM in reply to: cadman777

Hi Chris thanks, i have tried these when i was messing about but the bend extension is not working??

I am including a sample file as I hope this gets noticed as a possible bug

 

I am using inventor 2012, I have tried a double bend and as in this enclosed sample a single bend but i can't seem to get the "bend extension perpendicular to side faces" to work, it always extends to the width of the smallest edge?

 

is this a bug in 2012?

 

regards Adrian

Adrian,

I sent you the wong Help file screen shot.

Find attached the correct one.

Turns-out you can't do what you want to do, unless the adjoining sheet you're connecting to has tapered/angled edges.

Cheers ... Chris

Adrian,

I have 2010, so can't open your 2012 file.

Hi Chris

 

I think this feature should woork on a standard bend as in my sample file, I am sure it is a bug? can anyone verify this?
