I know there is a way to show a weld symbol but is there a way to show the actual bead visualy?
Weld beads are cosmetic features. To insert the bead use Weld Bead in the Assembly Features dropdown on the Command Manager (alternatively, Insert>>Assembly Features>>Weld Bead...). Follow the steps to insert the weld bead and click ok. If only the weld symbol shows, try going to the View menu and look to see if Weld Bead is checked. If not, turn it on and you should see a graphical representation of your weld.
I tried doing the same thing in a drawing file, is there a way to make cosmetic weld beads apear in a technical drawing?
Yes. Easiest way to make them visible is to select the view you want to see them in and Insert>>Model Items. In Source/Destination choose Entire Model as your source and uncheck Import into all views. Then down under the Annotations section, there's an icon for caterpillar that needs to be selected. Click OK and you should have a representation of your welds. Further, you can select each weld and modify the appearance and size, and even do some trimming if necessary. (Also under the Annotations section there is a button to turn on the Weld Symbol). Model Items is a great little tool for drawings, have some fun experimenting with it.
Thanks for asking the question - I learned something new today.
