    Default settings for Weld Bead Caterpillar display in Drawing

    Tyler Nichol

      Hello Forum,

       

      Does anyone know how to change the default settings for whether or not caterpillar annotations show up in a drawing of a part that has weld beads modeled?

       

      I'm working on a part with just a couple welds. In the part file I made weld beads, which I know are not required and I could have just created a weld symbol alone without the weld bead but I kinda like the weld beads for visual representation and want to use them. However, I don't want to show the caterpillar in my drawings. Right now the caterpillar shows up when I insert a drawing view and I have to go around and delete them manually. Is there a way to set it so the caterpillar does not show up when inserting a new drawing view?

       

      I tried turning off Welds in Document Properties->Detailing->Display Filter, but then I lose my weld symbols and the caterpillar remains.
