InsertBends2 Method (IPartDoc)

Creates bends in a thin-feature part.

.NET Syntax

Visual Basic (Declaration) 
Function InsertBends2( _
   ByVal Radius As System.Double, _
   ByVal UseBendTable As System.String, _
   ByVal UseKfactor As System.Double, _
   ByVal UseBendAllowance As System.Double, _
   ByVal UseAutoRelief As System.Boolean, _
   ByVal OffsetRatio As System.Double, _
   ByVal DoFlatten As System.Boolean _
) As System.Boolean
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IPartDoc
Dim Radius As System.Double
Dim UseBendTable As System.String
Dim UseKfactor As System.Double
Dim UseBendAllowance As System.Double
Dim UseAutoRelief As System.Boolean
Dim OffsetRatio As System.Double
Dim DoFlatten As System.Boolean
Dim value As System.Boolean
value = instance.InsertBends2(Radius, UseBendTable, UseKfactor, UseBendAllowance, UseAutoRelief, OffsetRatio, DoFlatten)
System.bool InsertBends2( 
   System.double Radius,
   System.string UseBendTable,
   System.double UseKfactor,
   System.double UseBendAllowance,
   System.bool UseAutoRelief,
   System.double OffsetRatio,
   System.bool DoFlatten
System.bool InsertBends2( 
&   System.double Radius,
&   System.String^ UseBendTable,
&   System.double UseKfactor,
&   System.double UseBendAllowance,
&   System.bool UseAutoRelief,
&   System.double OffsetRatio,
&   System.bool DoFlatten



Radius of the bends


Bend table name (.btl file)


K-Factor ratio or -1 if not used


Bend allowance value or -1 if not used


True if auto-relief cuts are to be added, false if not


Distance relief cut extends beyond bend (see Remarks)


True to create these three features: Sheet-Metal, Flatten-Bends, and Process-Bends, false to create only the Sheet-Metal feature

Return Value

True if successful, false if not


The offsetRatio argument is from 0.05 to 2.0.  Any other value fails to create the
bend features.

When True is passed to doFlatten, all three Sheet-Metal features are created.

For more information on these arguments, see SolidWorks Help.
