SmBendCreate - converts hard edges (sharp edges between flange faces) into bends
SmLoft - creates sheet metal part with lofted bends and flanges from two non-coplanar curves.
SmRepair - restores the 3D solid model of a sheet metal part by thickening one of its sides: all thickness faces become perpendicular to flange faces. Fixes problems specific to parts with lofted bend features: merges adjacent bends and provides tangential connection with flanges.
