When I create weld beads, the size represented in the model doesn't match the size I specified, or the resulting callout.For example, if I create a weld bead with a radius of 0.5in, the model shows a fillet weld with a radius of .325. The old 'Fillet Bead' feature gives you a representation in the model that matches the size you specify.

I made a frame using c-channel and all I get to show up in the cut list is "material ". When I specify the matirial all I get is "AISI 1020" in the description and length fields. There doesn't seem to be any fields that calls out the actual beam size or length. Am I missing something?

Does anyone have these profiles as a download for SW weldment Profiles? I thought SW originally had these in weldments, but I guess I am mistaken. I would rather not spend the entire day making or downloading each size from McMastercarr.

I've had this happen a few times now, pretty frustrating. No matter what I tried, it kept repeating. I was already pretty frustrated because I had virtually finished my model yesterday, when the file became badly corrupted so I had to start again

I would like to make my selections for the Bodies to be Trimmed box then right-click to activate the Trimming Boundary box so I don't have to keep going all they way over to the left side of the screen all the time. Is there a way to do this? I would even be happy if I could program one of my 3D Connexion buttons to do this but I don't know what the command alias would be.

I know how to add nuts, washers and bolts (smart fasteners) to an assembly, but can you add these fasteners to a weldment. If you can then can someone please do a step by step guide as to the process.

I have a part that was a structure weldment, but we decided to make the part out of bent steel. So now the file is a Sheet metal part. I removed all the weldment data and all i have left is the sheet metal data, but the cut-list info is still there.

Hi, I'm using weldments for the first time, I'm getting a funky end condition. Can't seem to correct it. I'm using the mitered end as well, but it only shows up on a few. Anyone know how to correct?

When I try to run recognize features option. I get the following error 'Feature Works cannot proceed further'. This is a single part so there are no interference issues, and to best of my knowledge there are no overlapping solids, is there a way I can check this.

I can get the corner treatment dialogue box to show by picking an individual part, selecting Edit Properties and then picking an end point, but the change corner treatment options are grayed out. All the online examples show the Corner Treatment dialogue box in the Properties area just under Groups. I'm not 100% sure if this suggestion will fix your issue, but I just ran into something [

I am adding a note to call out a slope for drainage and want to include the item number and have it reference the correct item number automatically. After doing some searching I found out how to put custom properties into a note by using $PRPWLD. I have tried it and it works well for the items in the table that you can manually change by typing like $PRPWLD:"Description" or $PRPWLD:"Material".

What is the reason some columns are blank in the table? The ones with the blank cells/values are the one made using non-weldment profile. So you need to fill in the properties into the model cut list to get them in drawing OR update them to weldment profile.

I'm working on a project that'll need somewhere between 1" and 1.5" square or rectangular tubing, and I'm having a hard time finding weldment profiles in that size range. The smallest square size in the ANSI standard zip file that you can download from the solidworks content tab in the design library is 2.5" x 2.5". I know I could just draw and save a template, but without having the size finalized yet, it's be much nicer to have a library around the size I think I'll need and the option of

I have been working my way through my Weldments tutorial and after editing a piece of 2x2 angle .SLDLFP to make a 2x3 angle and saving it in my newly created folder as a 2x3 angle.SLDLFP I then navigate my way through the "insert structural member" command and find my newly created library feature. However after selecting the sketch entities that I want to define the structural member and selecting OK I get the screen report "!library feature is empty"

Small Weldment Profiles The free downloadable weldment profiles you find at 3DContentCentral, start at a medium size both in the square and rectangular tube profiles. So, I tried to find smaller profiles...no luck.
