Here is the problem in it's simplest form:
I can't add the 3rd segment in SW2008 SP5.
Is this fixed in SW2009/10/11?
Yes it is fixed in 2009. You can add Groups in a Structural Member starting in 2009 that allows you to add as many segments as you want in the form of a new group. Pretty handy and cleaner in the Tree.
Great, thanks! Now to push for $$$ in upgrades...
Good luck! Honestly though there actually were some pretty solid improvements in weldments between 2008 and 2009 that I am sure would end up saving you enough time to more than pay for the upgrade. 2009 to 2010 there were a few more improvements with the major one bening that weldments started supporting multiple sheet metal parts. At least this was a major improvement for our company.
