Bending Bar – Instant 3D Forming Stock

Teaser - Bending Bar Instant 3DInstant 3D is an often overlooked feature that needs some attention!  We have a simple model that will demonstrate the power of this feature and start a series of blogs that can show just how far we can use this flexibility in our design.  Please check out our video demonstration below and look ahead to the next video that will include weldment profiles.

In this blog we cover

1. Creating a solid bar (any shape)

2. Define the sketch to allow for bending (this is key)

3. Replace the profile

Next time!  We will use weldments!

Please note that the video is in HD and you can adjust the resolution by changing the gear in the tools section of video window. Please send us feedback!
