We received a fab print (.pdf) of a finished part with minimal dimensions and information. It is a 2" square tube bent part at 90 degrees. I calculated out the finished part length based on thier dimensions, but was wondering how to figure backwards to pre-bent length. We typically dont do bending but want to supply the customer with the exact length needed to bend out thier finished part. Would it be equal to the nuetral axis of the finished part?
Thanks in advance! Russ
