Sheet metal flange align to angled face.

Hey all, 

 

New to Fusion and also very new to sheet metal so forgive me if I'm being silly.

I'm trying to create a flange on sheet metal that aligns with the face of another flange that is angled into it. Needing to do this so that it can be welded when manufactured, I can do it with sketch/cut but just wondering if there's a better way to do it.

Obviously, this example is fairly simple but can imagine sketching and cutting more intricate designs maybe tricky. 

 

Attached snips of what I'm trying to explain. 

 

Thanks!

Please attach your model so the Forum users can work with it to provide a solution.  If you do not know how to attach your Fusion 360 model follow these easy steps. Open the model in Fusion 360, select the File menu, then Export and save as a F3D or F3Z file to your hard drive. Then use the Attachments section, of a forum post, to attach it.

Attached, As you can see the top face is intersecting the left face.

With sheet metal it is always about avoidance of any intersection.  Getting the overlapping flange to overlap precisely the outside face is a matter of manipulating bends and their location.  You did not specify if the flange should be inside or outside, I chose outside.  You can explore the timeline in my attached model.
