Title: Bend tool and let all pieces follow
Post by: NeverStop on September 05, 2017, 06:38:43 AM
Gents,

I'm playing With bend tool and it's simple and Nice to use.
But I would like the tubes/pipes or other parts to come With the bending part.
Is it any easy way to do ?

Best regards

Henry,

Here is the file.

I have not drawn the bend line on this file.

I'm confused. The .tcw you posted doesn't look like the screenshot.

Ok, here is the most current file.

Note the highlight colour just changed to black in this one.
Any idea why?

I don't understand what you mean by the text that I have emboldened and blued.

In the attached image, I Bent blue the tube, then Flanged the blue tube.  It wasn't difficult to do either.

When I bendt the plate the tube/pipes did not follow the plate to the next position.
Maybe group before and ungroup after ?

Grouping won't work. Try 3D-Adding the pieces before bending (but I don't promise that that will work, either.)

The 3D add worked very Nice! Thanks!
