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.

I have just created a section of a machine frame as a weldment.This frame will be bolted to a mirror versionof itself. (ie. Themain frame consists of two welded frames which are boltedtogether.)I created an assembly inserted the "rear frame"then I mirrored the "rear frame" from the assemblyenvironmentand specified the "front frame" as a new partwith its own part number / file name.My problem arises when itcomes to creating a drawing of the "front frame". I amunable to insert a weldmentcut list

Is it somehow possible to link a value of one global variable to another? I am trying to automate the calculations for railings made with weldments, it is possible to adjust length, height, width etc. however

I'm hoping to find someone who uses the Weld Bead and/or Fillet Bead tools. I'd like to get the point of view (opinion or experience) of someone with some real use experience with these tools about which one to use and why, and if you like one over the other. Also, any idea why SW would want two features that do the same sort of thing?

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.

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 a sheet metal assembly that I have welded together. I have used the Weld Bead feature to detail these welds. I want to a) export these welding details to the STEP file of the assembly and b) see these welding details in the drawing.

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.

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

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?

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.

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?
