This is a repost of the issue with bends which impact on other bended sides when applying the gap1 and gap2 parameter.
I am preparing a part in sheet metal and face difficulties in making proper use of the sheet metal workbench bending functionality:
The draft design is available here (https://rushfiles.one/client/publiclink ... ErGUKocgMc
) and consists of a sheet with 4 bends. However each bended side is unique and it appears impossible to apply the bend parameter gap1 and gap2 respectively, for the bend demoninated 'BendRight.
When specifying a gap 2 for the flap 'BendRight', the bend belonging to the top is modified instead - see illustrations here: https://rushfiles.one/client/publiclink ... LpPsjPR7G4
and here: https://rushfiles.one/client/publiclink ... Mh8QCMJ21Y
1) Any ideas or tricks for introducing a gap of e.g. 4mm at the top of the right bend, which does not impact on the other bended flaps (e.g. BendTop)?
2) Which is the correct way of introducing holes/cuts in the bends while maintaining the possibility for subsequent unfolding? (see example here of structure which unfolds correctly without cuts, but fails to unfold after introducing the 2 cuts). https://rushfiles.one/client/publiclink ... rm4TJNo0LX
