Sheet metal bend WITHOUT sheet metal tool

KlaasKlaas Member Posts: 12 PRO

I have imported some existing (complex) 2D DXF files which contain the flat design of a sheet metal.
The actual product is bent over the line:

I can extrude the DXF drawing as a flat sheetmetal.
But how can I now bend the sheetmetal in 3D in Onshape?

I also tried to extrude separate parts (top of line and bottom) and transform them according to the bend-radius, but then I need to connect surfaces, which is also not possible?

Many thanks,
Klaas van der Molen
