Creating a plate with opposite flanges at the same edge.
Usually we only see a chance to bend plate in one direction per edge. But it is also possible to create plates with flanges in two different directions as shown beneath:
You start with a regular plate. In our example the plate is 600/300mm.
You "divide" the edge in parts by the command "Modification/ Plates/ Corner":
Then you cretate sections by clicking the edge:
In our example we divided the edge into three parts by defining two further corners (see inner arcs). Please note: This command doesn’t include a catching option so assumedly you’ll have to stretch the new defined corners separately.
With the new corner(-s) you are able to add flanges via the plate dialogue:
In order to create flanges in two different directions please change the prefix at "5.Bend angle".
