Assembly Weld Beads Definition

I am going to try and describe this the best I can.  I have researched on the

forum for what I am trying to do in weld beads.


I have figured out how to create a weld bead between 2 components.   But what I want to know

is there a way to control the shape and size of the bead similar to if you were to to a swept feature

along a guide curve with different sketches.  Or like what we are able to do in the chamfer command in specifying

the lengths of each cross sectional side.



What I have is a circulat rod that is chamfered on the mating end and I want a weld bead around when it that fills in the chamfer.

Then when it mates up to a rectangulat plate doesn't extend past the flat edge surfaces of the plate on the vertical sides.

If I had access to snagit I would most definately show you a pic of what I have.
