Learn about creating mitered corners.
- [Instructor] For question number five…of the sample exam, they're asking us to create…a three segment mitered corner,…so basically take the exact part we finished…in question number four and modify it…so that that one corner will be looking…like this right here, so section BB or view BB here,…so all the other corners are going to be exactly the same.…This one's the only one that's going to be changing,…and we want a three segment miter.…So head over here to Solid Works.…This is the corner they're talking about,…so let's go ahead and jump into this weld here,…and if I click on this little pink or purple dot…right there, notice I get this corner treatment here,…and it's using a butt corner right now,…so I want to change that over…to a mitered corner right there,…and then notice the bottom one is not part…of this little miter deal,…so I need to change what's called the trim order.…
So up here you can see I'm trimming the first group here,…which is group number one, and then group two…you don't have these options because it's kind of like…
