If you're interested in lisp routine, you can found it here on WWW at cadtutor.net...

P.S. I only by accident run into this topic... Perhaps now it's too late, but just FYI... I've coded this long time ago :

Thanks Marko.

I've had something similar myself.

Thanks Bryce.

Imagine a big sheet of thick plate.
Press the plate at the crease lines.
The edges will stay normal to the face and appear to twist at the transition at the bend.
The front and back faces will stay the same size (in length)  as the  template.

called Kerry in my other life

Sometimes the question is more important than the answer.

Kerry, on a side point (as in interested in the process):
1)you have drawn your crease lines in the center of the plate, does the machine automagically allow for creep?
I was guessing something like 6mm plate due to the size of the holes.
2) I guess you need to input the bend angle at each crease, thus the code.
3) there is no bevel on the tops and bottoms
