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… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello all, I was testing a weld profile configuration file I added to Solidworks 2015 file locations, then didn't like it so I manually deleted it back out.  I had it under the file path as noted.  And changed the system options to get rid of path to that folder but I'm now getting errors whenever I try to create the simplest of profiles. I hit… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello all, I've spent hours trying to figure this one out.  I have a weldment and made a drawing for it with all the balloons and cut list table.  I later added a derived part using "insert part" to the weldment then "move/copy bodies" to position it in place using the mates settings (its called RS-1).  It DOES show in the cut list within the… (Show more)

I wanted to create weldment profiles for dimensional lumber so I created a part with a 2x4 profile, I then tested it on a table leg I already designed. It worked so I decided to make a new part and add all the profiles in the configurations tab so I would only have one part file for all configurations of dimensional lumber, i.e. 2x4, 4x4, 2x6....… (Show more)

I go to the design library and download the weldment profiles, it won't like me download them in the existing weldment profile folder so I created my own folder, I added that folder to the file location for weldment profiles but nothing else shows up except the default sizes. just wondering what I'm missing or not doing correctly.

Hello All. I'm struggling with trimming the body shown in the picture below. In this weldment, I run into this scenario multiple times. I don't remember having this issue with 2018 but after upgrading to 2020 sp5 I feel like no matter what I do using the trim extend feature I can't get it right. Any help would be really appreciated.

Click to view contentFor simplicity I drew a quick weldment to show a weldment with a single variable in length. While I can handle this in the drawing with either a weldment cut list or a BOM, I was curious how everyone else creates drawings for weldments that are basically identical with variable dimensions? It would be super convenient to be able to add an… (Show more)

Here's the problem: I need to have a part number and barcode for a part file (multibody) which John helped me with previously.   Now, I need to create a part number and barcode for each cutlist item. I am using a Weldment Property Template for this step instead of a Part Property Template.   I can link the weldment's barcode to the part's PartNo… (Show more)

I have a weldment that has a plate that I need to make a separate drawing for. I saved the body out into a new part. The issue is the tapped holes will not call out in the drawing. I get the tap drill diameter not the thread call out. Just wondering if there is a way around this besides manually typing the information in.   Thanks

Click to view contentI want a straight cut the bottom round pipe (without extention), like in 2nd and 3rd example to the right. But I can't figure out how to do that in weldment using Trim/Extend command.  Trimming command doesn't produce expected result. And all other options failed to produce desired results. It always ends up in ejxtention around the… (Show more)
