Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the miter flange, part of SOLIDWORKS: Sheet Metal Design.
There's no more impressive or powerful tool in the Sheet Metal tools library than…the Miter Flange. The Miter Flange can create very…complicated sheet metal shapes in a snap, and correct the use of the feature can…really save you a lot of time. More than likely this tool will help you…create shapes that would otherwise be extremely difficult.…To get started, we have to draw a sketch on an edge.…And that's the hardest part. But before we do that, we need to actually…start the sheet metal feature. So I'm going to click on sketch.…I'm going to choose the top plane. I'm just going to draw a rectangle using…the Corner Rectangle Cool. Starting right on the origin, I'm going to…draw our a rectangle. And I'm going to go ahead and add a couple…dimensions of 5.0 and 4.0. And, come up to sheet metal and click on…Base Flange tab, to create a base feature. In this case here, I'm going to choose…0.125 thickness, click OK. Now, if I wanted to go back and change any…of the sheet metal features, I can always go back and right click on the sheet metal…
