I'm self teaching myself Inventor and am stuck on one of my projects because of this part. Can you help me or give me some advice. see attached drawing. Im trying to make the double bend in this part.

    Hi Karol

    I know that the first command that comes across your mind is the "bend" and makes absolute sense.

    However, instead of using that you can go through the following options...

    1.Design first the two ends (that need to look bended) in a different level then you can use loft to connect them (by using a path of course)

    2.Again design first the two ends in a different level but now make sure that come in contact then use "fillet" to look like bended...

    3. Start your model as a sheet metal and take the advantage of the bend tool along with the flat pattern... I think this is the most appropriate.

    any further questions let me know

    Additionally, you can restrict the length of the open profile with the goal that it touches just the segment of the part that you need to twist. Draw the open profile straightforwardly on the substance of the bit you need to twist. At that point, twist one bit of the part instead of various segments that can lie on a similar projection bearing of the open profile. For more information please visit to our website

    To characterize the curve line, or the area of the twist, utilize an outline of an open profile comprising of a solitary line fragment. The plane on which the draw is made fills in as the nonpartisan plane of the curve. It's great practice to put the outline plane in favor of the part where the twist happens or at the focal point of the curve. Likewise, put your portray plane at a stature where you can gauge the outcomes. For more info please visit to our website
