Sheet Metal Transitions in SOLIDWORKS

There are a lot of tutorials out there that explain how to use the lofted bend feature in SOLIDWORKS. The most common application is to help create a sheet metal transition to go from one size or shape to another.

But many tutorials stop short of showing multiple bends. Instead, they show a loft from one shape to another, but not the extension of that end. In this tutorial, we'll walk you through the traditional loft command and take it one step further by extending it with an edge flange.
