High Stresses at Joints

Hi All,


I am doing a simulation and the stresses are really high on the corners where two tubes meet. Please see attached. This will ofcourse not be in reality, as the gap between the tubes will be filled up by welds.

I know the reason is due to the geometry. Is there any way we can remove these hot spots? Otherwise I will have to extrude the tubes (with the feature option "up to body"), which will make a fully enclosed joint. But then I cannot use that model for generating my drawings. Is there a better way so that these hot sopts don't come up?
