    Complex weld details and how to show them

    Darren Marchant


      This is my complex weld detail...

      If have a drum in mild steel.

      Over that is a 2205 Stainless steel shell, rolled from 12mm sheet.

      The stainless shell is heated 150 degrees C before fitting to the drum, this expands it.

      It will then be dogged into place and welded.

      The heating and dogging closes the root gap, turning the rolled sheet into a sleeve which then is allowed to cool and shrink onto the drum.


      My longitudinal weld detail is a V prep in the lower 4mm of the sheet which will be TIG welded while the sheet is hot.

      Over that will be a J prep which will allow the rest of the sheet thickness to be MIG welded, also before the sheet is allowed to cool.


      There's a few other details, some drama, and tricks involved to.


      But my question is

      How to I get SW2014 to show a V prep with a J prep over the top, using the ISO weld symbol manager.


      Im guessing I will have to model it in and show it in a detail view.


      Thanks for your help
