Frame Generator - Notch With A Gap

Status: Accepted
by Contributor ericlynch7405 on ‎11-14-2012 05:37 AM

When Notching one frame member to another, there is no option to have a gap between the two members. In our line of manufacturing, there must be at least a 1/8" gap for fittiment and welding.

YES! Not only a gap, but modifications to the notch, such as a fillet. Our notch setback is typically 1/2", and they are filleted at the back end (end of notch away from the mating member). In order to accomplish this I have to do a separate sketch and cut/extrude on the frame member, whcih sometimes goes whacked when the frame member changes (not always though).

Yes, another great addition to the frame generator.

How about an option to quickly detail the notch dims... Especially if you have an oddball notch
