So I've added a bunch of weldment profiles from the web to my weldment profile directory. Solidworks detects the folder I created "8020" however, I cannot select or use any of the profiles. Any idea how to fix? thanks

weldment multibody materials Hi, Please there is a way to have different materials for a multibody part weldment, so my multibody weldment has square tube, rectangle tube, end caps, and base plates and I would like to apply different steel materials for them. If is not possible to apply materials in parametric way how could I apply in manual approach.

I'm sorry but for some reason I decided to combine two straight weldment segments and that's what I got. Looks like it doubles the combined length

I have a cut list with (2) components that are mirrors. Because it is a square tube, it is identical. The cut list shows it as a separate item. Can I force them to be recognized as the same?

Just trying to figure out how to strengthen these corners. With the loads they will be seeing, they are yielding. I don't believe they will after they are welded together, but I can't seem to get a "real" weld into these corners to test. I would settle for a smooth fillet just to spread the load out over a little more area.

I'm using an out of the box installation of SW 2015 and am discovering weldments I downloaded from SW content are bareboned and seem to not include weight information. Hopefully, I'm wrong and can make a selection within my weldment part and weights info will be made available within the drawing. Can someone please point me twards the answer? I'm prepping for a presentation and hope to include a nice BOM or two which will list out the weldment's cutlist items with their individual weights.

I can't for the life of me select anything that will insert a weld bead between this rectangular tubing and this angle iron. Anyone figure it out? Thanks in advance.

SWX18.1. I`m trying to select edge near weld bead without success. Filtering doesn`t help.

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 have an assembly where have used "full penetration butt welding" to join two parts. In drawing sheet I want to connect the welding annotation (The size of the welding) with some custom property. How Can I do that? I have attached a picture of my drawing for better understanding.

I need this value for my BOM, but it is ZERO for all subweldment cut-list elements and non zero for others. What is possible to do? Because it is a bug, I`ve got SPR 401847 for it

I am working with some custom profiled extrusions that have regular cutouts for mounting hardware (think a bar with slots cut every 6 inches), it would be really helpful to be able to create a weldment profile that when extruded along your frame lines would have these cuts made already. Making the profile shape is not an issue and making the cuts is not an issue, I just wish that I didn't have to make all the cuts everytime I use that shape. Is something like this possible?

Hello, I am a basic user of Solidworks and I want some help. I want to weld these 2 parts of the sheet metal, and then I have to run static simulation.

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).

Weldment profile file location. The weldment profile file location is found on the hard drive of the users PC. Is it possible to move this location to a common location on the server so all can access it?

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.

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?

Changing weldment profile inserts library feature instead of changing profile if there are sheetmetal features and other library features in part. SW is aware of this bug since 2015 and even recorded it. However it is neither fixed nor is a fix to this issue (SPR644470) posted.

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?

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