    to answer your question. Have you used the trim to frame button? Its on the design tab.

    Where are you located? A friend of mine has a car you might like, a 240sx with an infinity v8 with a huge turbo. He does mostly drag racing. Since i see you have a solid axle sitting on the table im going to assume the same for you, or you are planning on a lot of power

    At some point in your training they should have covered the fact that an assembly with out parts (just like the real world) is useless. The iam file is simply a list of hyperlinks to part files and a record of constraints and a bit more. Need the ipt files.

    Does trim/extend work on bent members? just like using the bend as the terminator.

    So, each frame generator tube in assambly should be copy in to new part file after creating?

    All main frame can be created in one part file? Or each part should be created separatelly?

    Only need to copy trimming faces as surfaces as shown in images.
    And this only applies to bent sections - the rest can be trimmed with standard frame generator tools.

    Yes, I understand that. Thank you very much! Your solution help me lot. Did all sculp job.

    In previous question I was talking about different things. What to do with assambly file and there generated tubes. How to made them as parts? Here are my question again:

    So, each frame generator tube in assambly should be copy in to new part file after creating?

    All main frame can be created in one part file? Or each part should be created separatelly?
