Hello there

I'm currently using 2001 but upgrading to WF2.0 or 3.0 in the summer, could you tell me if it is possible to create a flared end on a pipe in WF. I've looked into the 2001 and it doesn't give you the option which I find very strange as not all pipes are 'cut' ends.

Cheers

Will

Will,


One work-around that I have seen used before is to put a variable swept blend on the end of the pipe to mimic the flare

I've modelled the flare separately before but this has to be done as a separate part and therefore creates another part in your BOM table. Thanks for your reply anyway Kev, if you have any other suggestions then please feel free to suggest away
