How to model a 60 degree mitered?

In this modeling approach assumed that 3 cuts will be used yielding a bend with angle of cuts = 10 deg, 20 deg, 20 deg, 10 deg.

Use the following steps:

1. First model a simple 60 deg bend (locate points 1 and 2 in your model and enter a Bend radius value)

2. Modify the bend component,

a. Choose Bend Type = **Close** or **Wide** (use AutoPIPE help to determine which option is applicable)

b. Cuts = **3**

Done.

**Note:**

This modeling approach can be extended from 1-9 cuts as needed. These cuts would be create equal angles with the 2 end cuts equal to 1/2 the angle of a whole piece. See AutoPIPE's modeling approaches help section for creating other custom mitered bends
