Three starting options:
A) Split the part in half to create a multi body sheetmetal. Add the weld bead & merge it back together.
B) Insert the part into an assembly. Set the assembly to promote. Add your weld bead here. That way you part will always show up in BOM's as the a single part with weld bead.
C) Model the weld bead instead using standard extrude feature. Exclude weld bead body from cutlist.
You need to allow yourself to be a little more flexible.
Not only can't you create the zero gap in the SW, you can't create a sheetmetal like this with zero gap in reality.
So instead of getting hung up most of the time, try to move on with something that works.
To resolve zero gap try:
-Use the move face feature and offset the gap
-Use basic cut extrude.
Then there is B & C and probably a whole whack of other ways to do this....I just need one to move ahead to the next step.
Keep your expectations real. No point making up scenarios that proof your point.
I'll believe you if you say you can't. You don't have to prove it to me.
Please relax, it was just a question, not more and thank you for your help
And please upload a model with your method of 'using move face' and 'basic cut extrude' operations.
It`s very interesting to see
I tried but unfortunately without success.
