    Well, if modeled correctly, Inventor should have already trimmed that for your.
    But since you already have it modeled, the Corner Seam tool sounds like a likely candidate for investigation.

    Not the best of methods but as you are stick with a model that will not update correctly you could convert it back to a part make the cut then convert it back to sheet metal (not the correct workflow by any means but a way round in this case).
    USING AUTOCAD 2016 AND INVENTOR 2016, ALIAS 2016 SHOWCASE 2016.

    If in doubt scale and don't ask!
