I tried starting a sketch on the back and projecting the bottom of the V then setting the
SM thickness to .03, and doing a fold. It just flipped the whole part 90º and made a
weird looking bump on the backside 8^)) I wonder if you possibly made the bottom of
the V groove flat a small amount, and placed a fold in the middle of the flat?

BTW In the future could you please zip files before posting. It makes them smaller and
also non zipped files often lock up Outlook Express. Thanks.

Oops! I just discovered the non-zipped file issue. The file has been
re-posted as Miter Fold 2.

Dave take a look in CF under your last post.
Is this what you're after?

Dave

Not exactly what you want, but see if the file I posted back would work. The web
thickness in that file isn't what you want, ... I meant to change it to .03 after I did a
couple of things, but forgot. It is real touchy and will never be perfect but...
depending on what you need it might work??

Good show Kent. I like that. It worked, that's the important part. Actually,
I would think that's the way it would have to be cut anyway.
