    Question triming a sweeped surface in general model family template

    Hello,
    I am trying to make a corner of 2 different surfaces that are made by sweep command merge smoothly. I wonder If I can able to trim a surface that has made by sweep command so that I will make a group of 2 surfaces.
    One of the surfaces is like corrugated metal panel, and the other one is flat surface they combine with each other a 103° angle and flat surface cap the other one.
    I tried to make void, so I can trim the corner but then I couldn't make the other one visible because of the void.

    Is there a way to make sweep command with two different profile (one starts at the beggining and the other one starts at the corner) so that corner can be merged.
    Thanks.

    Can you attach a copy of the family?

    Move the void(s) vertically until it(they) isn't(aren't) cutting either sweep. Control the cut/uncut properties of the void(s) using the proper commands. Move the void(s) back into position so they are cutting the sweep(s).
