Is it possible to show the intermediate bend states (in 3D) of a sheet metal part?

I would like to create mfg process documentation that shows what the sheet metal part looks like at various stages of the folding/bending process.

    Could you get the same result with using @mbartlett21 's folding featurescript? If you had one for each fold, and then suppressed them accordingly you'd have a process.

    I tried something similar for an assembly process. Just a bunch of transforms that took a pile of parts and moved them into a finished product.

    Oh, and add in @NeilCooke '' new arrow featurescript and it'll look great.

    It should be in the list of featurescripts in the link below this comment.
    You may want to use the unfold one or the fold one
