Is there a way to change the bend order of hems in the model (similar to edge bends) so when I create a drawing it automatically populates the bend note in the order I want? Currently my hem shows as bend 5 in the bending order on my drawing....or am I missing something? Can this be done in bendnoteformat.txt? or through some kind of programming function?

I am trying to make a very simple part. At least in reality. Attached is a sample model which illustrates what I am trying to do. Part must be bend following profile an welded to form a closed rectangle.

HUSEYIN BAYRAM- MaybeFrank Rueppcan explain how SolidWorks calculates the Bend Area and mention if there is another thing that could be done to help you.. Why is the corner so big? Because we have to open the bend area so that bends do not interfere.

Lasercut fold assist cuts I could draw over them in a solidworks drawing and change the line type to a custom line style. Then scale the drawing 1:1 and hide the original fold lines.

FLATPATTERN BEND NOTES DISPLAYS INVALID ALLOWANCE (BD) VALUE I have concern regarding the bend note allowance value. See the picture below, I used a custom bend table which generates the bend deduction value of .060" on a 90º bend (2x .500" flanges with a .940" flat pattern).

Also, you stated "mirrored the part in an assembly". Does this mean you performed the following steps? Or others?

I extruded its internal space and converted to sheet metal in order to have the side sheet metal parts, but solidworks won't let me use edge-flange commands to do the flanges on the top. any ideas?

Extra Material Forming tool creates a thin extra material on the surface. I used delete face tool to get rid of this.

Forming Tool I can't see you file because I'm on SW2015 but I'd guess it's a radii problem. The radii of the face that meets the metal needs to be the same or smaller than the thickness of the metal.

Incorrect Flat Pattern I create a sketch and use "Base Flange / Tab" to create a U-Trough form. When I convert to the flat pattern it seems to fully discount the rounded sections and only allow for enough material to create the side walls and the formed lip on of of the wall.

EDIT: I don't believe this method will generate accurate blank parameters and such, as it is more stamping/drawing than forming. I think this can be achieved in a Premium version of SolidWorks with the surface flatten feature, but I'm currently on a Professional.

Flatten Issue I have found that it was Normal Cut checked/unchecked create this difference. If Normal Cut was unchecked it was creating a round edge.

On inventor I used the rip function which deleted the radius of a flange leaving it corner to corner so it can be welded, on Solidworks, rip seems to add a bend radius. Jive Software Version: 2018.13.0.0_jx, revision: 20190118155848.7eaeabc.release_2018.13.0-jx

Welded Corners Difficulty (again) So reading around and looking in the KB it seems like Welded Corners are one of those features that in theory works but in practice rarely does so this may just be another one of those cases where it's not going to happen. But just in case a Sheet Metal guru is out there: any luck getting a Welded Corner to work in the four corners of the attached part (SW17)?
