Small Touch-up Operations

Postby freecader2 » Mon Sep 13, 2021 7:55 pm


I was wondering if anyone could provide suggestions about how I can clean up some edges of my paths.

The 2nd example screenshot shows an 'X' over the extra material I'd like to remove. The arrow in the 1st one shows (what I think would be) an ideal path to do it. But I can't figure out how to create that path at the correct height (of the horizontal beam towards the right side), and avoid cutting all the way around the the center block which would destroy the taller areas at the top and bottom.

Thanks in advance for any ideas how this could be done!

Provision of a source file would be very helpful. If the part in its entirety is copyrighted or patented or other intellectual or protected work, consider creating a Cube in Part WB. Make the dimensions large enough to include the focused area displayed in the picture, then apply a Common tool so just that portion of the actual part is represented. Use Part WB and create a simple copy of the new Common object and place that simple solid in a new file to be shared. In this way you may be able to share parts of work here in the forum that otherwise is impossible due valid reasons.
