Angle Aluminium Extrusion

Hey guys, I’m new here, I used sketchup as hobbyist and fun, 3D printing, Sound System Design for Show Business and recently design and production road case for touring. I hit myself with a little problem, I get model of an Aluminium extrusion used for lid in a road cases. I’m looking for a way to “cut” in angle of 45 degrées like a will do in real life. This will helps me with good measurement before cutting the actual real pieces. what would be the be solution ? I try with every 6 solid tool but don’t get a good result. There’s is a picture of what i’m talking about.

I need a simple 45 angle on both side to get a better edge. How can i do that ?

Sorry for my english i’m french Canadian in Quebec. :slight_smile: Nice to meet you all.

Draw a “cutter” at the miter angle and intersect it with the geometry of the extrusion. Then you can erase the waste side. If your extrusion is a solid group or component, you can make a solid “cutter” shape and use either the native Solid Tools or Eneroth Solid Tools to subtract the cutter shape from the extrusion or trim the extrusion with the cutter.
