Does anyone use materials from the library (angles, tube, channels, etc) without being in a weldment environment? I have had situations where this would be useful in that I only need one or two parts of an assembly to be standard materials while creating a model.
I've done some simple tests with this and anytime I create a part by starting a sketch, the entire weldment tab of tools is unavailable. If I simply sketch a line that would represent the needed length, then I have the option of selecting a structural member.
Maybe this is the best/only method of doing this, but thought I would get some feedback
