I am very new to solidworks and am trying to detail an extrusion resembling an angled plate coped at 2 corners around some tubing. When I have "merge result" checked the body copes properly around the tubing however then I have two posts and the plate as a single body. I tried to use the split feature but cannot get it to split the bodies properly. Is there another way to get the plate coped around the tubing so that I can have it separated on a drawing sheet with the cope pattern?
Any help is appreciated.
