I'm getting this edge flange over lap. Not sure why ?
This is how I modeled the part -
L-shaped base flange for the overall shape
Edge flanges at the end
Cut each leg to get the taper
If one of the holes is disappearing when you are adding a horizontal relation, I would look for the red origin in the sketch - chances are really good that it is turned sideways.
(Not a big deal, just remember that the short leg of the origin always represents "horizontal" and the long leg always represents "vertical")
Based on this origin, the lines of text would be "vertical", because the orientation is turned 90 degrees.
You can use miter flange feature. As per your requirement. Here is an example.
I read it. Greek to me.
Attach the part file and people will be able to show you (with your part) what you need to do and how.
Attached is an example of miter flange use.
Miter flange or Edge Flange
Hi F... The only way I can duplicate what you have there is if the edges are not quite on the same plane. In the first screenshot the edges are offset .0001". Note that the Gap option is greyed out like in your screenshot. Could this be your case???
If the edges are on the same plane.
Of course the gap is a bit big considering what your material thickness and flange length must be but now it can be changed. I used .001" thickness in an attempt to visually match up with yours.
Dennis, where are seeing the edges are offset .0001 and the Gap option is greyed out ?
It's been a long day. I see the gap but it's set at 1mm and it wont allow me to change it. But where's the offset at ?
I'm just guessing that might be the issue. In my screenshot (with the overlap) I purposefully extended one flange out further than the other in order to duplicate what I see in your screenshot. We need your file in order to pinpoint the problem. Can you attach it?
Your mis-understanding my question. Where is the "Offset" setting your claiming it greyed out ?
No,, You are misunderstanding my answer. I stated that the "Gap" option is greyed out. There are probably a multitude of things that may be causing that and we can't go through them all. So,,, it would be really nice if you could attach your file. Or, at least show a screenshot of the design tree so we can minimize the number of guesses we may come up with.
I thinks this what Dennis Bacon says.
Very good and effective communication Maha, Thank you.
I just looked over the "Forum Posting". It says I'm to use the "Advanced Editor" and the "attach" feature if I want to attach a file. .
The next question is: What are they ?
Their not in this reply box. Not available on my screen.
Correction: Where are they ?
Thanks for sending this file Manish but unfortunately I'm unable to figure out how to open it.
I appreciate the effort.
I think I figured out how to get a file attached. Not sure if I'll be able to figure out how to open one on return.
Using the sketched bend on an angled part appears to have caused the issue -
If you select the two faces where you are attempting to add a flange, they are at an angle to each other.
"Another way to do it is to edit the Edge Flange Sketch and delete the line relation and add a degree dimension and your gap dimension..."
As soon as I figure out what you just suggested, I'll try it.
2nd. Your accusing me of picking an augument ?. (that's a question, not an accusation). Then you assume incorrectly. I responded based on as I understood his communication. Maybe I mis-read his response or mis-understoood him. Did he take it as an argument ? Very unfortunate.
3rd. "Elites" on here ? I wouldn't know. I'm new to this forum and I'm new to SW as I have attempted to make clear so many times before. I'm a beginner. I'm having a very difficult time just learning how the function of this forum works. Not to mention SW it self.
And text based communication is also not one of my specialties or strong points.
Yes Todd, I too discovered that. I'm now trying to figure out how to fix this problem. This part is starts off flat, 6" across one end while 8" across the other. Then I sketched bent it down the middle at 90 degrees, the big end is straight. So I'm guessing that once bent,one edge is leaning forward a small amount and effecting the edge flange. I'm trying to figure out how to fix the problem. I could start off at the big end fully square for a 1/8", that would not be notices with produced.
So are the edge faces on the same plane and 90deg to each other ?
Mis-fired the reply. I got it this far. But having problems getting it to extrude cut the holes. One hole disappears when I try to ad a horizontal relation.
I'm remaking the part again for the up-teenth time. I'm trying to do as your suggesting. I taper cut one side but the opposite side won't cooperate. the origin has moved from it's original position. And I'm getting a degree dimension on the second cut for some reason.
