Weldment Profiles - Extraction

Question asked by Anthony Patterson on May 8, 2013

So I downloaded the ANSI weldment profiles from the Design Library and extracted them to the appropriate folder. Now though, when I go to select "type" for new structural members, I see duplicates of the same type just listed under different names - for instance Square Tubing is listed as "AI Tube (square)" , "square tube" , and " Tube (square)". Different sizes seem to be available for each type as well and also the naming conventions are different (e.g.  4 SQ x .500 Wall  vs.  TS4x4x0.5). Does it matter which one I use as far as properties or the BOM is concerned? Should I delete the duplicates that I don't need?


I tried extracting the files to a custom folder in the weldments profiles location, but that just created a subfolder which I was not able to access through the weldments (structural member) feature tree.


Any help would be much appreciated.
