I just installed SW16 Professional and my weldment icons are not active, what am I not doing correctly?
Welcome to the forum. As soon as you create a sketch to use as a path for the Structural Member function the icon should become available.
Glenn, thanks! I haven't used SW for two years which was at former employer and everything was set up, but here I am trying to do it on my own. I thought that you could create a 3D sketch while in an assembly and editing part??? I did open the part and the weldment icons were active which then showed there weren't many structures available in the lists. I'm very rusty for being away for only two years. Any help or video tutorials that you know of? thanks Glenn
You need to create a sketch and then exit that to get those grayed out icon to life
Thanks Deepak, trying to populate the structural member lists. I have only four or five profiles in each type of structure. Any help is greatly appreciated.
