I have some parts that shall be welded together (not a channel), I created a groove to fill it later with welding, how it is possible to do it and to get a welding shape on my parts ?
Do you want to show the weld in the assembly, in the drawing, or both? In the assembly you can try using a weld bead (Insert > Assembly Features > Weld Bead). In the drawing you can use a Caterpillar as Kelvin suggested.
One way is to use the Caterpillar tool.

I am able to see the weld bead only on shaded view, how it is possible on "hidden line visible " view ?
I don't think you can show the weld bead in "Hidden lines visible". I don't know how complicated the weld path is, but you could replicate the weld bead by starting a new part in context of the assembly, then sweeping a circle along the weld path to create a solid body. Then use the Cavity feature to subtract the part areas from the weld bead so that the edges will show up.
ok thanks Jamil, it is a normal welding but it shall appear on all type of views logically. by the way I have now a weld bead, but it exceeds the angular machined face, do you know any method to trim that excess welding ?
I would need to see images to understand the situation. Can you post a few?
As you can see below the weld bead end is at an angular face & I was not able to trim the excess.
I don't know why the weld bead extends off the part like that. I don't know how to trim it. For more control you can try the method where you make a new part in context of the assembly. Since the weld is a straight line you could make it with a simple extrude rather than a sweep. And you can draw the shape of the weld however you want.
