Need advice for creating a sheet metal flange (non-rectangular)

StephenGStephenG Member Posts: 365 ✭✭✭
Having difficulty in creating a flange on an interior cutout that is not "nicely" rectangular.

Onshape seams to be having a problem with wanting to put in blend reliefs during the flange creation which are confusing the issue.

The "Automatic miter" option isn't properly mitering the overlapping intersection. So I manually entered an appropriate miter angle.
Got closer to result, but the bend reliefs still appears to be an issue. Even tried making the bend radius really small.

I would welcome and ideas on how to get this to work. 

Note: After the fact I will change the bend relief and to a "tear". 

Comment: Given that incorporating a default bend relief while creating a flange can cause problems wouldn't it make sense to have the option to specify the blend relief type during flange creation?
