    Hey Shift, what would be the most efficient technique of reproducing attached in SolidWorks? (pull down the EOP)

    I would still use a miter flange. You can select all 4 edges at once and it will make that part. Its the same as a contour flange in inventor. I am curious though, is there a reason you split the solid instead of using Section on the Inspect tab?

    Thats the badger. I had a play with the mitre flange technique but was unable to get the clearance between the flanges small enough. What JD has drawn looks interesting though. How did you produce it, I cant open the attached IPT file, my Solidworks says I have the wrong inventor type.

    Here is a STEP file of my solution. Only took about 5 minutes in Inventor. I'm still trying to figure out how to get it in SolidWorks without a lot of work.

    It works just fine for me. I set my gap down to .01" with no issue. What gap are you trying to achieve? You can use the closed corners to tighten up the edges if needed. I uploaded the one i just made. drag the end of part line down after you unzip the file.

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Thanks for that Mat. I shall have a proper look again at my effort, and see where I am going wrong. Last time I worked in inches, I was working in a shipyard that is now a development of exclusive flats?
    Thanks also JD, Ive only been using SW for 4 years now, so I guess I have a long way to go yet.
