Have anybody seen Jay Patterson presentation titled "Using weldments to design large structure in SolidWorks" that was presented at SWW, and would like to comment?
I just watch the presentation and I am not sure that it convinced me entirely. From a desing point of view it seems that having a large weldment as a single file might not be a bad idea, but if something goes wrong you risk loosing a lot of work.
How do you handle the drawings or such parts properly?
In 2010 you can select portion of the weldment and make views that way but I suspect that the drawing will be very large and clunky.
Furthermore, if do not think that you can do any kind of exploded views. I do not think that, even in 2010, it is possible to adjust the section depth for parts.
