I've modelled a frame using weldments and I'm running a static study on it.
It's been a royal pain which is unusual and it doesn't like meshing properly either.
Is it good practice to export to an iges file then re-import and combine the individual items as a one piece solid and run the analysis?
I tried it on another very simple part and loaded it and allocated it identical material and the results were alarmingly different!
Here's a screenshot of the stress results from the original part file - you can that the results are not symmetrical even though it is constrained and loaded symmetrically.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated
