    Weld lengths still not correct

    Mark Greenwell

      Hi,

       

      I thought that this was going to be resolved in 2017, but looks like it is still an issue.

       

      When using the Weld Bead function if I have a 6mm fillet weld on one side of a 1000mm plate looking at the properties I see a weld length of 1000mm. this assumes that a 6mm can be done in one pass.

       

      However if I have a 15mm fillet, I cannot weld this in one pass. It may take 4 passes to achieve the 15mm fillet.

       

      So I put 4 passes into the box, but the total weld length still shows 1000mm.

      Shouldn't the total weld length be number of passes x initial weld length = 4 x 1000 = 4000mm of weld laid?

       

       

      Thanks
