Making A Door Frame

Making A Door Frame

Making A Door Frame

I have a sheet metal with multiple flange made by the "Flat" function.

I got what I want, but at 45 degree.

The issue is I need it at 90 degrees. When I change it to 90 degrees it doesn't look the way I want it.

At 45 degrees, it looks like:

When I change it to 90 degrees, it looks like:

The area where the arrow points is a cutout area that I don't want. There should be no cutout or gap when it is at 90 degrees.:

I used an extrude function to cut the flat flanges to get that 45 degree "cuts".

I have tried using chamfer, but, it wasn't a clean mate when you put it at 90 degrees.

I hope I explained the situation clearly.

Can someone help me find a way to make this without that cutout or the chamfer unclean cuts?

Those were made through flats.

I did use flange function and got this:

It's closer to what I'm looking for.

But, it's got a little gap in the middle.

RE: Making A Door Frame

What does the flat pattern look like when unfolded?
That gap may require weld to fill. How wide is it actually?

Here's the flat pattern:

It's about .35 at the widest point.
