If you need several bends within one session of the plug-in, then you should start (as you have already guessed) from the Bend #1. Once you did it, click the Add button in the Bends palette (Just be sure that this palette is activated.) and add one more bend and then, choose the type of the bending (curling or folding) by selecting the appropriate check box. You may add up to 25 bends and, of course, either bend is fully adjustable at any time within the plug-in session. (See Fig.1)

When you add a new bend, it will always be added with the default settings (In particular, the default type of bending is curl.) each time onto the same place - bottom right area of the page. In the Preview area of the Surface panel, you will see the color triangle, which represents this bend, in the bottom right corner. Then, use the Surface panel controls to obtain the desired look of this bend. In the Surface panel's Preview, the active bend (in other words, the bend, which parameters you are adjusting) is indicated by the semitransparent green-colored overlay. Any other bend (if presents) is indicated by the semi-transparent blue-colored overlay. The shape of the overlaid area depends on the particular bend's parameters.

There might be the situation when because of the current settings of the active bend, it intersects with the existed bend(s). As a result, these bends have the conflict area, which is indicated by the semi-transparent red-colored overlay. In this case, the bend with higher priority* (lets' call it - "Primary" bend) ousts the bend(s) with lower priority (accordingly - "Minor" bens) (see Fig.2).

* The higher position of the bend in the list of bends, the higher its priority. The priority has NO relation to the fact whether the bend is active or not.

In this case the Minor bend(s) cannot be correctly applied. In particular, if the Primary bend completely ousts Minor bend(s), then only Primary bend will be applied. But if the Primary bend ousts Minor bend(s) just partially, then the parts of the Minor bends, located outside the conflict area, will be applied along with the primary bend (see Fig.3)

If you want all the bends are applied correctly, then you should use the controls of the Surface panel and adjust the parameters of the existed bends in order to avoid the conflict area(s) (see Fig.4).
