algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Hey guys.. I was wondering if anyone came across a definition for calculating bend allowance in sheet metal which is responsive to the material thickness and k factor.. So you could unroll a folded piece and get the precise flat piece of the bent sheet.. You would work off 2 planar surfaces With a hinge connection and define the flattened radius.. I know inventor and solid works do it but you have to manually build flanges while I want the flanges to be deducted from the original surface model so that the overall bounding measurements remain the same.. Thanks a lot
I'm doing the same research...
It doesn't seem to attract lots of interest :/
there are some bend features in GH....
I've had a go at trying to understand the nature of the problem, maybe you can adapt what I've started.
