Notice that the displayed bend attributes of the sketched lines now match the displayed bend attributes of the other bend lines on the flat pattern.
Notice that the sketched lines now display using the Bend Centerline linetype. Using the techniques learned in the Bend Order Annotation exercise, click , or right-click and select Bend Order from the marking menu. Notice that the cosmetic centerlines now participate in the bend order sequence.
These cosmetic centerlines can now be included in bend tables and bend notes you create in your drawings.
