I have a large extruded object -- say 600 x 200mm, 1mm thick. How do I curve it so the middle of the long dimension is -- say -- 60mm above the orginal plane. I can do this easily if I start with the curve, ie. make it sheet metal and flatten it. I need to start with the flat version.
It is actually a large PCB, and the part is complex ie. it has components exteruded on one surface. In the real assembly it is curved in one plane only. I have tried starting with the curved part, but getting the dimensions correct has proved difficult, as I only know the correct positions of the holes etc. in the flat state.
Any bright ideas ??
