I am trying to make a metal table with a rectangular or square tube as legs

the problem that i have is probably on my design (i make 8 straight lines and connect them at the centrer). because i use the <structural member> command but the tubes did not alied straight.

and except for that i cannot manage to trim all the 8 pcs together (like on the end) so i can laser cut them with a tube laser machine.


Can anyone please give me some advice on what i  should  do?

Or can you send me any tutorial?

Re: Metal table with rectangular tubes

all I see in the picture is that you have 4 lines...or did you make it 8.  if it is 8 try again with 4..

keep at it you can make it work...

Re: Metal table with rectangular tubes

Thank you very much for your prompt reply.

I have try both (to make it from 8 lines and from 4 lines) the problem is that it cuts only the cross section of 2 lines and not all together.

like on your photo.

Re: Metal table with rectangular tubes

it will take multiple trims.  I got 8 separate parts and 2 of the are exactly the same.  I can pull them out and detail the cut ends for cutting with a plasma or laser.
