Hi Joris,

 

You could just go back in and dynamic edit the angles of each end of the two flanges, to form a mitre......or reconstructing using a "Contour Flange" instead is another option.

Try what Sean has said then use the 'Close Corner' command

Actually I tried running "Close 2-Bend Corner" but it failed for some reason, I didn't spend time on to identify.

 

On the "Contour Flange" ribbon bar there is a setting in the options to close the corner within the feature scope. [as attached model]

After changing the angles to 45deg use 'Close 3-bend corner'

After changing the end angles to 45⁰, even "Close 2-Bend Corner" works.....soo many ways to get to a result! Robot Happy

 

Not sure about that bend radius on 4mm material though. Robot wink

Sean,

That's odd, because I can't get 2-bend corner to work.

I tried all the different treatments but always get a message -

"The selected bends do not form a valid 2-bend corner.

The bends must share a common face"

Well, if there's an ODD way to do, or find things....I'll be one of them. Robot wink
