      Hi all.
      Was just after some help in how to calculate bends into a piece of sheet.
      If I cut a sheet of 5mm plate which will have 6 bends ( all the same direction to end up with a bull blade face) at 12.5 deg and each segment is 125mm, how can I calculate the size of the sheet I have to cut first, if I want the end part after bending to be 700mm . Any help would be really appreciated.
      Thanks

      Bend Allowance = Angle * (PI / 180) * (Radius + K-factor * Thickness).
