sheetmetal tabs

Discussion created by Adam Parsley on Sep 12, 2007
I design sheet metal structures and me make them with tabs andslots for manufacturing to put them together easier. The problemis, it gets old having to draw the slots. If part A has a tab, wehave to go into part B and draw the cutout. I have been trying tofind an easier way, maybe through interference detection orsomething. The closest i've gotten is the Cavity tool. It willdetect part A and make the cutout in part B, the problem is that itwill draw the slot onedge of the tab, and there needs to be atolerance. If there is anyway to do this that would be wonderful.Thanks
