Custom Weldment issues I am trying to build my first custom weldment profile and I am getting some issues. When I go to use the weldment I am getting an error that states the library feature is empty.

How does it work in Solidworks? If I apply a weld with a v or j groove into a weldment, where does the cut/prep exist in the part or as an assembly cut or can I choose? I want to use a rectangle tubing but want that prep to exist in the assembly and not effect the part so I can use that same steel tube elsewhere as it may get a different prep.

Hello all, I have a weldment which is just a simple box tube stuck to a plate. Item 2 is the plate and the description is blank... and I can't figure out how to modify that value. That is all I want to do. I am sure it can be done, I just don't know how and my googleing failed me.

Does anyone know how to break the "linked to parent part" properties? I've been using weldments for quite some time and have never seen this.

I'm a joiner so I don't need a lot from SW but cutlists they are the thing I need the most but nothing gives me so much trouble. In all honesty it would be quicker to just print a blank form and fill it in manually, but I need to persevere I've tried many ways (bounding boxes are unsuitable because they take no account of grain direction, or stock sthickness). <As Machined> and <As Welded> configurations also cause me problems..

I only have three choices of tube in my drop menu, but there are many in the toolbox. Did something get missed in the install process? No, nothing got missed.

We created structural profile in a part. Now we have cut-list in the design tree. And when we click anything in the GraphicArea 2 positions highlight in design tree: feature and item in the cut-list.

Weldment profile changes breaking assemblies Today I modeled a t-slot table frame and created an assembly to mate all the connecting components, door hinges, cabinet doors, etc. to the main table frame. I'm designing it to use up some scrap t-slot in my office warehouse, so I ended up having to change some of the profile shapes to reflect what I actually have in stock to make it.

I would like to know if it is possible to have a new Quantity column in my cut list which will multiply the standard quantity column by a number which is definied by custom properties? Lets assume we require 3-No beams whicha re all the same length with the same end plates either end.

Does anyone know where to find a complete list of cutlist properties that solidworks uses? I would like to fill in my cutlist properties table an easier way to suit my clients.

My company requires a cut list for every job that we do, one major problem that SolidWorks has is the angles in a cut list not showing the direction of the cut. If the saw man were to just get the list and not the drawing, how the saw man is meant to know at which direction the angle is going (see example below):

I'm working on adding in some T-slot extrusion profiles (8020 15 series, the 1515 in this case) to the Weldments system in Solidworks which should really speed up framework designs. However, I'm running into issues with the butt joints of the bodies due to the complex profile of a T-slot. SW is trimming off the end of the T-slot following the profile of the adjoining component, but what I'm looking for is a straight cut adjacent to the butting component (what you will see 90%+ of the time in

I have a simple model made of weldments. Just a simple W8x31 beam frame with some C8x18.7 perimeter. Well today I wanted to make a small change, add another piece of the W8x31 beam to it. I add a sketch line and select structural member and most of my structural member choices are gone.

I am trying to control the number of decimal places displayed for the Length of cut list items in weldments. More specifically, I have modified the Description callout to include the Length property and I want the same number of decimal points to be displayed in the length dimension even when the dimension is a round number. As an example, I have made the following weldment with six sections of 2" x 2" x 1/8" steel tube.

I've referred to using Plate in weldments on several Forum posts, and a member contacted me about sharing my files, so I created this Discussion in case someone else is interested. For some background, a few years ago I created a folder with some plate profiles (simple rectangle sketches, centered on the origin, with additional points for alternate insertion locations).

I was wondering if it is possible to convert the length property in the weldment profile property from inches to feet. As I have separate column in BOM calling out Total and was wondering if I could see that column in ft instead of inch? Tags: none (add) weldments-cutlists
