I am not fluant in sheet metal commands and I have struggled to get as far as I have gotten.
My latest endevor is trying to apply a welded corner. I pick the face and an edge to give it
a target point and it wont creat it. What am I missing?
i think it's a waste of time to weld the corners, none the less, here is an example.
however, SolidWorks cannot weld a real world example. real world would be the 2 corners i left un-welded.
on a side note and for future reference, just paste your screen shots into paint and save as a jpeg.
I see what you did. I tried doing the exact same thing except I was trying to pick a vertex
or edge to project up to because that is what the help file seemed to indicate what was needed.
On your side note, I usually don't paste images that way. I have always cropped immages and pasted
them as jpegs. But at my new job they don't have paint shop pro or snag it or anything like it.
I just used what I had and made the best of it using Solidworks screen capture tool.
Kenneth, I'm not sure what you meant when you said SW couldn't handle real world welds, but see the attached jpeg. I agree I don't bother putting in welds either.
That was Ken that said something about Solidworks not handling real world welds.
I ended up just doing a closed corner instead of the welded corners. I think this is a more
inexpensive method anyway.
Looks like your question is answered. I thought I'd let you know about the capture feature in SW2010. RMC over the graphic screen and turn on screen capture. Then you can capture and edit in the Paint program that comes standard in Windows OS.
Also. I use the welded corner feature in sheetmetal because it will add the weld call out to the drawings.
Sorry, but when I RMC in the graphics area I am not getting that selection.
Terribly sorry about that Scott. Here is the correct location to RMC. Note: big red face over here
Thanks Carter. Appreciate it.
wow, never would have thought to select that face.
still, the end result is muddled.
