Overlength can be added to your parts for several reasons. Mostly curved parts need extra material (overlength) to be formed or bend in a machine. The illustrations below show a part that is bend in a press brake machine. The red zones are added overlength.
How to add overlength:
- Select part
- Go to the Overlength setup menu on the top right corner
- Select the edge that needs overlength
Tip: Move quickly true the edge selection by using the Tab key
- Type overlength in millimeters in the input field
- Click 'Apply' to confirm setting
Overlength will be added in the 2D parts (DXF) and is not shown in the 3D editor.
