Why are custom elbows not working?

Question asked by Derek Swegheimer on May 7, 2012

I'm using SolidWorks 2011 SP 5.0.


When sketching a route, I can create an angle for a trimmed elbow (say 30 degrees) and SolidWorks will allow me to create a custom elbow based on my standard 45 degrees elbow.  Everything trims just fine and turns out as expected.  However, when trying to create an elbow trimmed to, say, 89 degrees, it will not work.  (see attachment).  I tell SolidWorks to use my 90 degree elbow and figure it should trim it just as it does the 45 degree elbow.


Has anyone else run into this?


Any help is greatly appreciated!
