Symmetrical Thickness

When you create a sheet metal part as a base flange or lofted bend (with the Bent Manufacturing Method), you can specify a symmetrical thickness that adds an equal amount of material to both sides of the sketch.

Symmetrical thickness helps you create sheet metal parts from sketches to help achieve equal bend radii for upward and downward bends. In the image above, Symmetric is cleared for the example on the left and selected for the example on the right.

In the Base Flange or Lofted Bends PropertyManager, under Sheet Metal Parameters, select Symmetric.
