Frame end cup

amir_livneamir_livne Member Posts: 75 EDU
Usually when we have to prepare an end cup we use a flat rectangle bar for that purpose.
When we use that option in Onshape we have to give the offset dimension from the profile.
The result is that we receive an end cup with strange dimensions.
I think that Onshape should change it to the same format as in Solidworks

    My frame is 20X20 mm.
    My End cap size is 40X40X5 mm
    Seems correct for me

    It looks like you have a 3 inch tube. (146.2 - (2 x 35))/25.4 = 3
  • amir_livneamir_livne Member Posts: 75 EDU
    Yes you are right' I used 3inch Tube but I used the AISC standard due to the fact that ISO standard contains only a small amoount of prifiles.
    More than that - in case I would like to add a 40X40mm end cup I expect to write that dimension in the dialog box
