    Details for a weldment vs. a machining drawing.

    Mike Swagger

      If I need to detail a drawing for a weldment with parts at there stock sizes instead of there machined sizes and without any other machining done to it, what is the best approach?

       

      Here is an example of the weldment drawing and machining drawing.  The end cap in the weldment drawing is 5/8, but in the machining drawing it is down to 1/2.

      Machining:

      What I did was created a stock and machined configuration in all the parts inside the weldment.  Problem is that if I change the configuration to machined in one of the files open, the weldment drawing is effected. 

       

      Thanks in advance!
