I am trying to make a mirror of a weldment frame. I can get the part to mirror but it loses all of its features and cut list information.

Need help with weldments. Hi i started using solidworks about 2 weeks ago and have been trying to build an offshore jacket using mainly weldments. However i just realised that instead of completely hollow columns (4 supporting legs), all the bracing are extending to the inside of the columns.

I have a weldment in which I created an explode for one configuration. That explode affected all the other configurations as well. Even after deleting it, the other configurations are stuck in the exploded state. The only configuration that is unexploded is the one that I originally exploded.

At which location imagery mirror should be to get the profile differences? Sorry Maha, that one is a bit difficult to understand. Are you after something like this?

I want to take a weldment part (part number 002) and insert it into another weldment part (part number 003). In part 003 weldment cut list table, I want part number 002 to show in the description column, not the descriptions of all the part 002 cut list items.

I'm being asked to create a 3D dxf or dwg file based on a frame designed in SOLIDWORKS. Anyone doing this? What method do you recommend?

3d sketch of a square, table top. Inserted 2x2x1/4" wall square tubing. When locating the profile of one of the tubes to the correct position, others are wrongly positioned. How do I change one without changing the others?

My idea is to put the rectangular weldment hooked to the right by the solid body and, hooked up by the pipe weldment. When choosing the Pierce point I can't choose the perfect position.

Coping/Weldment question I have a question for you guys... I'm drawing a hand rail for a set of stairs and I use the split method to cut short for coping.

Custom Cutlist from selected weldment bodies I'm trying to find a way to create weldment cutlists by means of selecting the bodies. When detailing the weldment we can create one detail that has similar bodies with the only dimensional change being one dimension...say OAL.

I don't generally use the Weld Bead feature in Solidworks. Like most everyone else I simply just insert a Weld Symbol annotation. Unfortunately, we are launching a new product and I am trying to reduce the amount of trips to my office with questions regarding weld bead locations. I have found the feature to be brutally and pain stakingly slow.

I was going through the weldments tutorial and encountered this problem. A couple of trims were to be performed earlier and I was successful.

From the beginning SW had part file,assembly file and drawing file.Later (SW2004) we get possibility to have several bodies inside one file. But after this I think SW went wrong way:they made weldments which contains a lot of bugs up to now (SW2018): I found out that PTC Creo use usual assembly for weldments.In this case it is not necessary to make cut-list, their cut-list properties,derived parts with transfer of cut-list properties to file properties and so on.

It locks all of the fields unless you unlock them. This also stops you from being able to link to the description field for each item under the weldment properties.. SW2018 SP0.1. this was not the case in SW2017 or earlier.

Warning while saving drawing. I create a weldment profile by modifying existing weldment profile. Now, while saving a drawing, it always shows a warning.

I made some changes for the weldment part and the cut list item in feature tree was renamed as shown below. In the drawing it was showing the correct item number.

First time I have used a cut list in a weldment and for some reason the table will not work? Do I need to create a template? Have you updated the cut-list in the model?

Besides adding additional sketch points, is there any way to offset a structural member in Weldments, allowing a bolted connection? Example: two angles, perpendicular to each other. One resting on the flange of the other.

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

So, the weldments I design will have a mixed bundle of material types that are processed in multiple differents locations. Let me use just 4 examples so my babbling makes sense. This cutlist will have 4 different processed types of material. There is a Shear & Brake Process, Saw Process, Laser Process, and Plate Burn Process.

Just starting a new project and thought I'd create some Custom Weldment Profiles. Here are a couple of them - there are lots more!

Feature Library part using Weldments I'm using SW2018. I'm not super familiar with how the Feature Library works, but I've been working on a lot of structural projects using weldments... is it at all possible to create a Library part from a Weldment such as L3x3 angle that has holes/slots for tying in beams/channel and maintains it's cut list properties?
