I have an assembly I would like a weld bead on, but I can't get the bead to go around the corners. any ideas? I don't know much about modeling welding.
If you really want the bead to look adequate you can fillet the blocks slightly in order to have the bead propagate smoothly around it. I have done this before and created a configuration for it. That way you still have your unfilleted block for your drawing and machining.
Edit: This way you won't be confusing the person doing the welding.
The weld bead is a cosmetic feature to the best of my knowledge so it doesn't really matter if it doesn't join on the corners from the part perspective. Since it's a cosmetic feature I don't think there's an automatic way to connect the corners there, if you want to you could always manually create the joins with a profile and revolve feature.
Good idea. Thanks!
