All about Weldments...

OK - been away from SW for a little while and i am trying to get back in full swing!! Currently using 2016 SP4


I didn't really have a true area to pose this question because it deals with, both, the weldment and the drawing/detailing of...So, i will just throw these questions out there:

1)  I know how to choose my part material, but is there a way to specify the material so that it shows up in the cut-list?

     For instance, I just created a weldment for a 304 Stainless Steel project. It is made from 4x2x1/4 stainless rect. tubing. The cut-list only displays "TUBE,      RECTANGULAR 4.00 x 2.00 x.25". I would like it to list the material AND (if possible) the cut on each end. Like this:

     "SS 304 TUBE, RECTANGULAR 4.00 X 2.00 X .25, 45, 45" - indicating a 45° cut on each end....


2)  Is there any way to pull the cut-list out of the drawing so that it can be printed on its own separate sheet? Throw it in to Excel or something like that. If that is possible, I      can  modify the list on my own that way (referencing question #1)


3) Is there any way to keep the drawing from showing the contour lines in a plan view? I just want to see the outer edge lines - I don't need to see the lines showing where

     where the edge of the radius is.
