I need to have a fillet weld bead pattern at the intersection of the tube to the plate. .125 weld 3 places, each at .75 long, and 120° out. I know that this can be done on a straight fillet weld.

I'm trying to make the joint in the solid model look like the joint in the sample picture I provided. The below is the best I could do but it still looks off. Any ideas on how to make this type of joint?

I have a weldment that I made and the weldment part worked pretty well until I went to have it fabricated. To do that I need a separate drawing for each part so i thought i would save each member into a new part and make a drawing using the information in the cutlist. This worked for all but one part for which I am not given the button to save the cutlist properties. Does anyone know what would cause that option to not be available for the one part?

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 am curious if this is even possible & I didn't see a discussion asking this. I there a way where you can automatically create the natural blunt end (Detail A & B) for coping pipe instead of the unrealistic sharp point (Detail C & D) for a pipe cope? Because when creating a cut list it takes into account from sharp point to sharp point. I can automatically create the weld gap but that's all I can find.

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 haven't used weldments and structural members all that much in the past. I would like to display cut-list properties for sheet metal, but I don't see that option when selecting structural members. Is there a way to add material properties like number and description to a sheet metal part so that it shows up in a cut-list? We use BOMs for assemblies and then on part drawings we use the same BOM template, but just use "Indented" as the BOM type when we want the BOM to display the raw material

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.

How can I copy material in a weldment from one configuration to another configuration in the same part. configure Material does not work for you?

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

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

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 [
