I want to make a cut (boolean?) in one part using a second part (to get the right angle and radius). All the part are placed to intersect in an assembly. Is this possible to do?
This can done in both part and assembly.
1. In part simple extrude and create a body. Now using combine/indent tool, subtract the main body from the other body.
2. Insert part into part. Now using combine/indent tool, subtract the main body from the other body.
3. Open your assembly. Right click on the part you want to subtract from and select edit component. Now go to Insert > Feature > Cavity and select the part you want to subtract. Check this example (Cavity1.zip). For cavity option to work, you need to be in part edit mode.
Check these more examples (Part and Assy method.zip)

Depending on what you are trying to do, but it sounds like you will want to have a part and then insert a part into that part (Insert -> Insert Part) then perform Insert -> Features -> Combine.
I´m doing my internship as a furniture designer now. Have been using Solid Works for about 10 weeks. I just wanted to say that this site is so helpful, it´s great!
And your tip worked, I would never have found it on my own!
Thanks again. It worked great in my Student´s Edition 2010, but I can´t find the cavity feature in the Professional Edition 2011. Is there any difference between the two?
Or is it dependant on how the part is built or joint to another part?
I believe it is in the mold tools toolbar.
