Trying to rectangular pattern bends to part

Hi ya'll,

Disclaimer, I am new to fusion 360. I am trying to reverse engineer a gang nail for the fun of it, but I got stumped very early on... I have gotten the rectangular pattern to work on the flat cutout of the prongs, but as soon as I try to apply it to the bends, the prongs disappear. Any Ideas?

We'll need more information about your model before being able to answer. Hopefully, you've solved it on your own by now, but if you haven't, attaching your f3d file here so other can better understand what you're creation and how you've modeled it will help a lot.

I ended up bending each prong individually for the last part I did. But
there has to be a better way that I am just overlooking. I attached a gang
nail that would take far too long to bend each prong individually.
Let me know what you think I am doing wrong.

The attachment is missing. Also, are you trying to write a program to automate the creation of the model, or are you using Fusion interactively? If you're doing this interactively, it's probably better to ask on the Design forum.
