I need help on sheet metal bend allowances for example at work if I were to
make a component with 2 bends I would take the outside sizes and deduct a
bend allowance according to the gauge. e.g.
1.0mm CR4 ba = 1.8 per bend
Flange 1 30 o/s
Flange 2 50 o/s
Flange 3 200 o/s =280-2 bend allowances Flat length would need to be
276.4 but when I use solid works the sizes are different, how do I set up
the bend allowances to match what we use at work?
thanks in advance
