Custom Trims

Question asked by Oli Sparrow on Jun 4, 2014

Hi all,

 

   I Draw up a lot of frames and cages from 33.7mm CHS using the weldments feature.

 

   Where there are 90° welded butt joints we cut the tube square and scallop out a 9mm portion either side to create a nice joint, but leave a good edge to weld.  In solidworks it seems you can only square off or create a completely flush trim, without having to create an actual cut.  With upwards of 30 joints per frame this would be very time consuming.

 

   I've attached a quick pic to show what I mean.  Basically, is it possible to create a custom trim or anything that would do the same job with the minimum effort?

 

Thanks

Oli
