I have a decent background from way back when all mechanical drawing was done with a pencil and vellum.
I am trying to do some work for a sheet metal prototype in Solidworks 2006 and am having a problem that I can't seem to find any help for. I figured I would ask here.
All I need to do is draw a piece of sheet metal that will have the sides bent downwards at 90 degree angles along the left and right edges. I KNOW that there is a way to have Solidworks model this out of a single sheet of metal but I cannot seem to figure it out. Each time I try to use the bend feature it tells me that there are no bends found. How do I define a bend in the first place?
