When welding two pipes together at an angle just trimming one to the other doesn’t give us a desirable result.
In order to have a strong weld between the two pipes, we need to have a pipe wall that is a constant thickness.
The Steps to get a constant wall thickness:
- Create a ruled surface from the inside edge that is Normal to the Surface or Perpendicular to a Vector (Pipe extrude direction)
- Extend the surface toward the inside of the pipe.
- Use “Cut with Surface” with the surface body made in the previous two steps
- Delete the surface body.

The next video walks through creating a reusable template for different angles and different Outer and Inner Diameters.
