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.

Karol Byrne.

    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

    Regards

    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.
