Weld Types

Question asked by Michael Lewis on May 8, 2014

Is there a way in SW to make BUTT type welds?

There is only a Fillet Weld feature in SW.

Currently in order to make a BUTT type weld I need to fillet both edges (sin45 X Bead Size) and then insert a Fillet Weld.

 

This is a pretty good work around, but would like to see SW automate this type of weld and and add a slight bead dome to the butt weld bead along the parallel surfaces.
