Summary

Getting the perfect fitment with sheet metal could make you look like a king or queen among designers and friends with the welder/fitters. Although SOLIDWORKS Miter (mitre) Flange is a command that doesn’t seem hard, there are some hidden challenges which I will demonstrate below. Hopping back up to my sheet metal tab because miter flange is a command we can go directly into without leaving the sketch, we then select it. When I select my edges and try to complete the command I get an error saying “Unable to make a miter flange”. Editing that sketch and making that line 30 degrees and adding the miter flange we can now see a preview.
