I'm trying to build a structure with 80/20 aluminum extrusions using SW weldments. I've created the two profiles I need to use, and started building the structure, but have run into some problems. Refer to the attached file. I've included my profiles.
1. The trim/extend tool doesn't give me the result I want:
a. I trimmed the body Horizontal1 using the body Vertical1 as the trimming body which seemed to work, except that Horizontal1 extended into the centre of the Vertical1 even when I select 'simple cut between bodies'.
b. When I then try to trim Horizontal1 using Vertical2 it says the operation fails due to geometric condition.
2. I can't get the weldment cut list to update! Even before trying the trim/extends...
Where did I go wrong?
I'm using SW2009 SP4.0.
