Pi and Toroidal Bend


New member
Was playing with Toroidal Bend last night, thanks Puppet for the input :)

So I have a flat surface i am wrapping around a semicircle , okay if I make the surface width PI * 2* my radius.. it should be wrapped 360 degrees..one would think... so d3 width is driven by relation d2*2*PI.... d2 being the radius and PI being ProE's pi value.. i set accuracy to smallest value...it weirds out and makes a triangle....hmmm any ideas? my grandma's pies were all round

if I mod it just a liitle one way or the other it goes back round
