Teach me.....Sheet Metal interior flange corner

Stumbled across a problem I cannot seem to solve as I am not in Sheet Metal often.  Bascially I have an "L" shaped piece of sheet metal that have clanges that come in and meet at a miter.  How can I get them to do that efficiently?  I am mostly working in Ordered, but can do some stuff in ST.  Help ASAP please as it kind of time sensitive.  Thanks a lot!

Maybe in this case a contour flange?

Hi @scott_lester,

 

Yes, as Bruce suggests, using a contour flange is one such method I would normally pick on as it gives corner treatment options while executing the command,....you can also do it by adjusting the side angle to 45 degrees on a standard flange sketch profile.

 

Here's what I do when placing a contour flange on an already bent piece, such as in your image.

This worked perfect with one exception.  I have to add one more flange on them like in the picture below.  And it creates an overlap....suggestions?

Couldn't you just edit to create this in the same profile step as the previous one...?

I agree with Sean. You should be able to add that "overlapping" leg to the previous sketch.

You can sort of go nuts with it if you want.

"Close" it. Sean did his in ordered. I did mine in synch so the edit process is different. In fact Sean's video showed how he closed it as he made it.
