Drafting, Sheet Metal, Solid Edge, Tips

When you you are in the draft environment, it is possible to use callouts to label the bend direction, bend angle, etc using special callout labels.

What you may not know however, is that there is also an option to “Derive bend direction from the drawing view” (a check box) that  is found on the Application button/Solid Edge Options/Annotations…Derive bend direction from the drawing view.

This option allows the flattened drawing view to determine bend direction. If this is not checked then it is possible to have a callout to the top and bottom faces on the same bend where they both display the same bend direction.
