Frame design: End cap/plate

Hi,

 

How should I handle frame cap/ending/plate for square tubes?

I remember that SolidWorks had (or have) an automated tool, that would add end cap to open square tubes with a click on a button.

 

Does SE have something like that? Using latest version.

How do you normally handle it then? Make a part (e.g. 50x50 Cap) and use that? Or....?

I do wish SolidEdge did have an end cap feature, but it doesnt.  As strong as the frame design function is, they should get it!

I make an assembly driven sheet metal part and create the first sketch on the end of the frame member.

If you have one size end cap that is common. I make it on it's own and assemble it.

That's what I do too
