Help!  [Sheet Metal] I can't get welded corners to work with custom edge flange angles.

Title explains most of it.

 

Here is an image showing the problem:

-At corner #1, the edge flanges are at 90 degrees and the welded corner tool works just fine

-At corner #2, the edges meet at a 15 degree angle, and I cannot get any corner tools to work properly (I have tried increasing the gap size)

I need to have these corners fastened together for sure in order to conduct FEA analysis.

 

I have tried making the two pieces separately and welding them together in simulation (study) space but this is also giving me problems.

 

This is part of a school project - I am making a rear trailing arm for a suspension system out of sheet metal.

 

** I have attached the solidworks file for reference as well **

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Cheers
