view is inserted, all the bend lines are the same whether the flange
bends >up or down. For example, in our factory they know that the
flange bends up if it is dashed and bends down if it is solid-dashed.
Some CAM programs put a note "Bend up" or "Bend down" over each line.
I have automated our process to create a solidworks drawing and a DXF
file from the drawing, but if I still have to go back in to manually
change the bend lines in the drawing to the two styles I mentioned it
takes away from the automation.
Question, is there a macro out there that changes these lines
automatically? It seems like SolidWorks should have something like
this incorporated already. Ive seen a macro that put "Bend Up" and
"Bend Down" notes, but this would change our process in manufacturing,
so I would rather use a macro that changes the lines
