How to change corner shape where two sheet metal walls meet perpendicularly?

Hello all, have  a good day

I am having a problem in sheet metal part modeling, I have two walls perpendicular to each other and their ends/edges are adjacent to each other,now the corner that is formed at the bottom is V-type i want it to be rectangular, as is in the drawing given to me from which i have to model this sheet metal part. I have attached the images from drawing which i have to follow and the images of the model that i made, kindly go through these images for better clarification and how i want it.

Thank you all so much.

Sohaib,

I don't think single flange wall will help you here. You may try creating two flange walls and extend walls (without option "Extend surface adjacent to edge").

...and how do u do that? Extend feature is greyed out/unselectable in my model right now.

Take your model and flatten the walls, then add a sheet metal cutout of a square punch in the corners to give you what you have.

The reason you are getting the wedge shape is that the software is trying to close the gap for welding a 'water-tight' seam. This is not always needed.
