We won’t make you wait anymore…the best enhancement to weldments in SOLIDWORKS 2021 is the flush miter tool. This is an addition to the trims for corners in weldments. Now in the Trim/Extend Property Manager, you can trim the end corner miters at an angle or make them flush!
This is especially useful if the weldment profiles of the end segments are different sizes. It is incredibly easy to make a perfectly flush corner treatment by clicking Angle Bisector. This will automatically trim them to be as flush as two different size members could be. If they are of equal size you can use the full flush option to create a completely flush corner.
This option extends the capabilities of the weldment tools in SOLIDWORKS so now you can easily create the corner treatments you want. What used to take extra time and features to create can now be done in a single feature with just one click. To see it in action, check out the video to see the flush miter tool in SOLIDWORKS 2021.
