With the new bounding box functionality created in weldments, the description line of each item with a bounding box is automatically filled filled in with "PLATE, SW-Thick x SW-Width x SW-Length". Is there any way to customize this default? I would like it to say "Bar Stock" instead of plate. And why isn't the bounding box length field get used in the same length field as other weldment profile (i.e. angles, beams, etc.)?

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 hope this is the right forum. I am not able to get the bead welds to show up in visualize. Is there a way to convert a bead weld to a part or shape?

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.

Cut-list-Item Top plate comes in Cut-list-Item as like Gusset and End Cap in this video. But in my file this is not the case.

Structural Member Turned In my file Structural Member is turned, in the video this is not the case. I can go and adjust Rotation Angle in the PM to get a proper alignment but I wish to know the reason.

In my SW there are many Weldment types in PM, but in the video there are only few types. What is the reason for that? Instead of always posting in the General section of the forum, please post your discussions in the appropriate sub-section.

Locate Profile Even though this structure has 4 corners, I am able to see the profile only in one corner. What is the reason for that?

Learn to shorten, extend, or add corner treatments to weldment models using the Trim/Extend command. Learn to trim and extend structural members in a weldment model. Learn to optimize selections for trimming to minimize rebuild time and interference issues. Add corner treatments where two members meet in a weldment model.

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 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.

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 recently made a weldment with 'Boss-Extrude" plate element. The properties for the Boss are not working and I don't know how to fix it. In the properties of the Boss it has the long text entry defining the properties

I made a frame using c-channel and all I get to show up in the cut list is "material <not specified>". 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?

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..
