Exterior window trim

I am bending aluminum window casings to fit the windows on my house. The problem I'm having is figuring out the compound angles in the corners and the sill. Does anyone know if there is a particular technique or written instructions on how to do this.

Welcome to the forums! We're gonna need more information than you gave, since you can see what you have, and we can't. Why aluminum casings? The metal will transfer heat/cold. I can't imagine any "compound" angles in the corners. The windows are square/rectangular, so the angles in the corners are 45 degrees. the sill probably drops at 15 degrees. You can purchase a slide angle finder to help with the odd angles. Give us some more information as to what you are trying to do.
