Hello all, I want to bend a tube

Hello all, I want to bend a tube

Hello all, I want to bend a tube

Hello all,

I want to bend a tube around a radius of curvature in one step and then compress the tube in the second step. Is there a way to control a displacement along say, a defined curve? Please see attached picture of the setup I am looking to recreate, with the bending around happening first, and then the two plates top and bottom, compressing secondly.

Any help at all would be appreciated as I am new to using the software.

Thanks in advance!


RE: Hello all, I want to bend a tube

Thank you for your response. Have been looking there and else where for more information and can’t find anything to control displacement around a defined curve.

Thank you,
