This video provides methods for changing single bends.
- [Instructor] In this example, I want to show you…how to modify individual bends inside of a sheet metal part.…Now, you can see here we have a basic…sheet metal part here, and under the first…sheet metal folder here, I'm gonna go ahead…and click on edit feature.…You can see here, our default radius is one millimeter.…We have a thickness of four millimeter,…and we're using a K-Factor, and that's…gonna be used for all the bends in the part.…Now, if I want to individually change…something like this bend down here,…or maybe this one over here, I can easily…get to those bends by looking at the base flange,…and notice here's all the individual bends.…
If you click on them, you can highlight which ones they are.…Let's go ahead and choose this one right here,…and click on edit feature.…Now, by default it's using the default radius,…but of course, I can click on this and change that…to maybe 10 millimeters, okay?…Notice over here, it's also the bend order.…If you had a part that might be failing…because the bend order was wrong,…
