Clipping a TK corner

Postby Brian Timmermans » Sun, Jan 30 2011, 10:32PM

I have searched and have found nothing.I could use some help when I try to modify a detached toe kick so a corner is clipped I cannot seem to rotate the pieces to cut them on a 45 angle.Is there a way to rotate parts in part editor other than front or back to cut the right section?

Brian, I assume you are trying to cut a miter on each end of the kick plate? If so then all you need do is apply an appropriate tool to those ends in a profiling operation

So do I have to cut my piece to length and then apply the tool to cut the 45 degree? Is there a way to do this in one step?

Brian,

Yes, you will have to create each piece to the size needed, then apply a profile edge to one or more edges as desired using a 45 degree tool.
