Sorry, not really a SolidWorks question, but someone should know amongst the engineering clientele.


Does anyone know of a document or standard that shows the correct way to accompany a welding symbol with a "NUM_INST" type of qualifier (2x etc.)?


We have the standard for dimensioning, but I cannot believe you have to add a multitude of identical welding symbols attached to similar features..Yes, you can add a note somewhere alongside a symbol, such as "AT 12 PLACES" or put such as "12x" above your symbol or in the tail area (wrong), but there doesn't seem to be any literature around on a standard practice....
