This one's got me a bit stumped. I need to model a simple mitred weldment, the problem is the number of sides can change between 3 and 8.
My first thought was to get all 8 bodies and combine them down to the required number.
something like this..
..but combining doesn't play nicely with the cutlist.. It appears my length is double what it should be
So my next idea was to make a snake. and I could delete what I don't need, but then I'm stuck with the last mitre unless I add extra temp segments to the head/tail
Should I make 6 separate parts or 6 structural member features.. ie 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8?
or is there an elegant way to make it work?
I think I'll have a go at 6 features and check back for suggestions.
All the best
