I am trying to add a size to the toolbox for weldment structural profiles. Where can I find the information that the program is asking for? It won't let me add a size unless all the fields are complete.
You can get the required sizes/details from the manufacturer OR machine design hand book.
I can't read my machinery handbook due to the small print size. I found this website while searching.

wow something new? I would have to create a sketch profile to add stuff like that to weldments. Now if they would include some good info of what each values is looking for. Then you could go find a chart in the books, and enter values from the tables in the books. or from the website or other chart. I got a good one from southern steel and supply that has dims for all kinds of products laminated that they either sent to me or brought to me. Carrying it around for like 600 years so it is kind of hard to recall where exactly it came from
These weldment profiles would only create the sketch and would not function like a weldment tool does. But using this tool, you can quickly do calculations to find the desired size.
Ryerson is a good resource as well.
