Weld Bead Size

Question asked by Mark Greenwell on Sep 27, 2019



I have added a weld bead to a part to see how close the weld will be to another hole. The leg length of the weld is 17mm.(Part called FILLET WELD), looking at the model it looks like I am around 6mm from the edge of the hole to the weld. However when I model the weld using a rotated extrude (Clevis Plate) the edge of the weld is right next to the hole.


The weld bead shows the weld leg length from the edge of the plate not as 17mm, do you have to take weld penetration in to account when showing weld beads? or is there a way of showing a correct leg length.
