Free comsDrawIt! – Convert Polylines to General Purpose Profiles (L-Shape, U-Shape, etc.)

From the Autodesk App Store:

This plug-in puts together a collection of parametric functions for general purpose profiles (L-shape, U-shape, square, etc.) and commands that will allow you to convert polylines in sheetmetal sections or waterproofing membrane.

The commands can be accessed through an integrated tool palette, through its ribbon bar panel or through the traditional command line.

The palette will remember previously used parameters for further quicker selection and will allow to visually changing the insertion point relative to the shape.

The sheetmetal command allow you to specify thickness and bending radius and will work on simple polylines or even already converted sheetmetal shapes, allowing you to change parameters on the fly.

All function, if applicable, allow you to draw only the external shape, or complete it with section xhatch and/or axis.

Entities will be drawn on specific layers, that user may freely choose and configure.
