2D Drawing of bended object

Hello I am about to finish an object and want to prepare it for a 2D mechanical drawing.
I was wondering if someone could explain me how I can draw a folded object. I also want to show the folding line. Here is a screenshot of it:

I want to make sure that the specs are exactly the same in the 2D drawing as it is in 3D.

Thank you very much in advance for any help :slight_smile:

Hi there,
Create a construction plane and offset it from the edge you’d like make a line drawing. Use the Project tool.

Here is a sample you can take a look at.

This is another way of approaching this type of task.
Copy the Body and rotate it 90º, then position Both Bodies roughly as shown.
The Rectangle serves as a target area Plane.

Thank you very much for this. I have one more question. How did you calculated the measurement of the folded parts of your object for the drawing/projection?

I checked with a supplier I work with, and double-checked and measured the sample I received :slight_smile:

Nice! Thanks for your insights :slight_smile:
