    Weldment gusset issue

    Bob Van Dick

      I have started to play around with weldments (never used them before).  I fumbled through the SolidWorks tutorial and decided to try some on my own.  I have placed several gussets on the attached weldment, but can't seem to get one to show up in one corner.  I'm getting a "please select a planar or cyclindrical face" error.  As far as I can tell, it is planar.  So I'm wondering if this is a bug, or am I doing something wrong.  Also, I'm curious as to why SolidWorks has such a small library of structural members.  Is there a property box somewhere that allows you to set the size of a structural member or does one need to create his own library.  If one does need to create a library, how do you access it?  Is there a path the library needs to be in so that when you click on the add structural member icon, that it will display the library as well?

       

      Thanks,
