Select the edge of one of the flanges, then select Extend from the Editing menu.  Define how you want it extended and repeat for second wall.

I think these are two flat walls, if yes.. you may try creating a flange wall with no corner relief .

 

Or try using Extend option, select edge of one wall > Extend > Select Reference to define TO Location. 

Re: Closed corner - Creo 3

Create an additional flange with a .001 flange length on one of the 2 edges. That will close the gap except in the very corner where the 3 blends merge. When they weld the seams, they can fill in the corner gap.

Hi @MaheshSh & @BenLoosli 

thank you for a quick response.

 

I now this method you provided and it is quite time-consuming.

I am looking for something more automatic like a command which I can find in different CAD packages.

Hi @kdirth 

 

thank you for the tip. I appreciate that.

The bigger issue is, I have to do extra 4-5 mouse clicks plus using Alt key to achieve what I need.

Re: Closed corner - Creo 3

Sorry, no easy buttons in CREOSmiley Wink  I do not know of any easier way to close the corner gap. 

 

I do like to use conversion by shell when there are several corners.  The conversion feature does a good job of creating the corner geometry.
