Closed corner on weld bead

I'm trying to show two plates with a weld bead. Together, the plates form a "T" when viewed from the front or end.

The plates are square-cornered. When I apply a weld bead assembly feature, the beads are shown as 4 beads, one on each side of the plate.

I would like to show the bead wrapping around each corner of the plate.

The attached pictures show the open bead versus the closed bead I'm looking for.

In this example, I edited the one plate and added a .001 fillet to the corners to get the bead to wrap.

But I don't want the fillet, I want the sharp corner with the bead wrapping around.

Can you show a closed bead around a sharp corner?
