Hi there,


I managed to reproduce your issue, with no clear setting to automatically handle this....I just applied two cut-outs the angled approaching frame members top & bottom flanges. I did it in two steps so as not to cut away the coping with a "through-all" cut extent.

I can make a screen recording of this, if you need it.

EDITED:  I noticed afterwards you had a space between the two paths of the coped frames.  When I spaced them out as you had, the last frame ceased to cope to the other one...  Looks like a IR that needs to be logged.


Place each part as a sepaprate Frame feature.  On the 2nd and 3rd feature make sure to turn on "Coping for non-mitred joints".

Thanks for all answers but the problem is that space between HEB1000 must be Smiley Happy why I put sketch with dimensions Robot Happy

I believe this work as design.


The line need to intersect for the frame to understand how to cut.


I can provide a request number so you can attach your name to it.




For now extend the lines until they intersect


Apply assembly cut
