attached are the parts and assembly of this picture.
I am trying to figure out the best way to make a miteror cut were these four parts join together? im haveing alot of trouble. Any suggestions?
Can you place a couple planes? One where each miter would be. Then have your parts extrude to the plane. Or...
I'm not sure of your assembly/parts orientation but lets say you would see the X pattern from the miter cuts in plan view. You could go into the each part and sketch a shape following where the miter would be and encircling the remainder of the part you want to cut off. Then just do an extrude cut to get rid of it.
I'm sure there are easier/better ways, but I don't know them, yet.
I would recommend doing Extruded Cuts in the Assembly, with the feature propagating to the parts.
I would consider making a weldment profile for each (if different shapes) and using the miter feature that is built in to the program.
I thought of that too, but they're different shapes, so I don't believe that would work.
I figured that but I'm running 2012 so I couldn't open them. Boss is too cheap to have the subscription service
Rather than us having to download 5 files, unzip 5 files, move 5 files into a common folder and then clean up the debris left behind, please ZIP all the files together before uploading.
I just fixed it all in a zipped folder thank you
This is how I would do it. There will be other ways, and some of them may be better.
Deal with only two extrusions at a time
Put one extrusion into Edit mode
Create a surface at the intersection of the two extrusions
Use that surface to cut the extrusion being edited
Repeat for all other extrusion intersections.
FYI ... I moved the extrusions and fully constrained/mated them, so they may not be exactly as you had planned.
I don't know if this will help but you can try to do this to see where your cuts need to begin and what angles to cut them on by isolating the parts once there is no interference between the 4 pieces. just a starter GL! hopefully it helps
