I'm not sure if I did this question correctly. could you please confirm that I did this question right? I've not downloaded your files, but just use two structural member features

We have models where we use a lot of HSS weldments (tens of thousands). We need to have the fillets modeled on the section profiles in the individual parts, however a simplified configuration (without fillets) could be used when opening the whole assembly to make the model lighter. 1.

Whenever I attempt to add a weldment cut list it is blank, nothing is showing. I have built my chassis all with weldments but nothing is showing up. I have tried all of the options that I know of, please help.

I am quite inexperienced since i am using solidworks only for 1 year including studies, so i wanted to ask if it is possible to have all weldment cut lists parts to be calculated. For ex. we doing railings and one projects comes with 20-30 different dimensions, but sometimes there are same parts in one wielded part like filling *ex. 12 diameter tube) it is usable in all project and sometimes they are the same. so is it possible to have them calculated or you have to do assembly file from

I have been trying to learn how to use weldments so that we can utilize the auto generated cut lists, but the tube in the cut list does not match what is in my model. I have 2 sizes of square tube being used here (1.5x1.5x0.120 and 2x2x0.1875). The cut list is calling out all the right lengths and quantities, but I can not get one of the tube sizes to be correct.

In Solidworks 2016 I'm designing a cube enclosure with 40x40mm aluminium extrusion. I'm going to place a 40x40mm corner cube in each corner to join the profile lengths, like this:https://www.thorlabs.com/newgrouppage9.cfm?objectgroup_ID=195

I am trying to make a custom profile of an aluminum extrusion. I made my profile sketch and constrained the entire thing so it can not move at all, but when I add it as a structural member as a weldment parts of it blow apart and will not allow the weldment to be created. Anyone know why this is and how stop it from happening?

Cutlist Problem (Again!!) There's nothing like cutlists that give me constant problems.

We have a problem with our weldment cut list not combining cut lengths which are clearly the same. We have to manually drag and drop the parts together to avoid duplicate parts on our BOM's. We have been unable to find a cause for this problem although I have noticed people with a similar problem but no solutions, any help would be appreciated.

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.

Newbie aboardBeen using Solidworks for 2yrs now, no help, used SolidEdge for 2 yrs before. Now my question is, I noticed this with 2015, do not recall this in 2013, when I use the channel in weldmets structual tubing, It looks like the tubing does not notch all the way through. I tried using a trim, can get it to work with the channel. Is there any setting to cut all the way through?

The weldment tool is nice for frames, but sometime I just want a piece of tubing or some other structural profile. Is there a way to just use the library features outside of a weldment? I am currently using the weldment tool for these single elements and all it does is make my BOM look like crap. It would be awesome to have the length and end angles come along for the ride without the additional line in my BOM.

My workflow for naming and labeling weldment members is to change the cut list item name, then make a property that links to that....and an note that uses that property. It has worked fine but right now I'm having a problem. In the cut list properties, when I choose Cut List Item Name, it just changes to SW-BeltThickness@@@ (part number).

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 [

We have a problem and we cant figure it out. It did work correct in SW 2017 and previous versions, but is doesnt in SW2018. We have a cut list property which evaluates to the length of the profile.

Is anybody noticing this in 2018, I have a weldment and in weldment the custom properties I have added a length field which is named "SW-Length" (using the apostrophe sign above the 2 on the key board), but in the cut list parts it doesn't show the actual length it just show "SW-Length", not the length of the part I am sure this was an issue a few years ago has it reappeared? Or am I doing something wrong.

I have a tube frame with multiple configurations. The tube sizes may vary in each configuration; 1"sq. in some, 1.5"sq. in others, and 2"sq. in another. The issue I am running into is the description for the tube does not update in the cut list and only stays up to date for whichever configuration tube size I updated last.

I am trying to make a frame that looks pretty much like a cube. I want to keep the position and the way they are welded the same, but that's when the problem occures. The trimmed angle beams are only trimmed where they touch the vertical beam. The last bit of the inside of the corner is not trimmed.
