Hi,

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

What Feature need to use? I try to use Subtract command on frame but it not work.

Re: Trim a Frame component

No, you can't use the boolean tools, such as "Subtract" on regular frame entities, but you can make cutouts, etc....you'd need to right click on the frame Save As Translated, to publish to full model level component(s) if that was specifically what you needed.

Thanks for the explanation.

 

Actually Save as Translated is what for?

 

I attach the Picture...I want to cut the frame base on the circle on TOP. It will be easier if I can use Subtract.

Re: Trim a Frame component

@Arisy, why not just use a side or front plane, and sketch a cut based on the table top underside? [make sure "Peers" is active, if using "Project To Sketch"]

hi @Arisy,

 

        You can try the Exten/trim command in the frames not sure if it will solve your purpose.

 

        its inside the edit end conditions.

 

 

 

Thanks ,

Re: Trim a Frame component

if the legs were made as a typical part/sweep, then you should have a solid you can use to subtract.
