A contour flange along the 3 edges would automatically miter those corners.

Edit: Uh, maybe not

Hi there @lifofadrafter,

 

Normally I would just use a contour flange to get those corners mitered automatically.....but in this case, you could just modify the side angle of the flanges, retrospectively.

...and here is a sheetmetal part, using the contour flange approach.

Hi @lifofadrafter

 

 

I also would follow the hint from @bshand to use the contour flange, and Yes @bshand it works here without any problem and as usual.

 

See modified example in attachment
