24. If you noticed there is no library of material for the K Factorand you were not prompted for the bend radius. The KFactor can be customized by Excel spreadsheets and thebend radius can be set after the part has thickness byediting the Sheet Metal feature in the browser bar. Set thebend radius to .125 inch.5. Next we are going to add an EdgeFlange to one of the sides of thebase part. We will add a 90degree X 2.50 inch flange, createthe settings so after the flange iscomplete the total measurement ofthe flange will be 2.50 inches andthe original length of 6.00 incheswill increase by the sheet metalthickness.6. Create another Edge Flange on an edgeperpendicular to the last flange. We wantto add this flange as a 90 degree X 2.50inch with the settings set so the finalflange will also be 2.50 inches tall,however; on this flange we don’t want the6.00 inch base dimension to increase withthe addition of material.
