Bending a shape

joseph_newcomerjoseph_newcomer Member Posts: 90 ✭✭✭
Here's a 3D model I found.  It is full of errors, such as non-manifold edges, so I can't use it.  But I'm trying to make my own version.
So I drew the following 2D image and extruded it,  Now I want to bend it into a leaf shape.  Exploring the documentation does not make the means of doing this obvious.  A pointer to the primitives I need or a tutorial are what I need.  Note that I will probably make six different leaves and create an assembly, which will also have a base for a lamp at the bottom.  TIA.
I tried going to sheet metal, using just the sketch (not the extruded component) but I couldn't figure out how to put a flange in at a certain line across the narrow part.
