How to trim excess sheet metal in Solid Edge

By George on 19 Apr 22:05 1 answer 1804 views 1 comment

I'm making a fender for a tyre (Tire) of a trailer, after getting the sheet bent into a inverted U shape, I make a Flange at 45Deg on all the bends. The problem is that there are edges overlapping and sticking out, how do I trim theses for a type of Miter joint? I am using SolidEdge ST5

    Hi George,
    select a flange and then click on edit definition. change the 90 degree default angle till you get a mitre joint.
