Bryan,

Can you explain in detail what happens incorrectly?

Hi Josh,

 

  I want to be able to Trim, Extend, Lengthen, Shorten, Miter, and Notch any frame member regardless if it is curved or straight.  I should be able to use either definition when selecting the start/end or other condition that the frames need to use.

 

Thanks,

Bryan

The other thing that's annoying with Frame Generator is that any curved elements you create, the curved part is separate from the straight part.  If I want a piece that's 60 inches long with a bend at the end that's got a 6" radius, it'll give me a 54" straight part and a part that's a 90 degree bend with R6, rather than a single piece of bent steel.
