I want to cost parts, but also assemble them and add further costs for joining those parts together. Any info on this would be welcome, thanks.
Depending on the complexity of the assembly, I personally would avoid adding any weld features, unless you need it for visual. You could draw a 3D sketch and measure it to get the linear length of the weld.
I do not need the visual, but I want to be able to include the welding cost in addition to the individual cost of the parts. I would like it to be something inherit to the assembly opposed to measuring the weld length for each configuration of an assembly.
The only way I would know how to do it would be to use a 3D sketch which follows the weld seam and then create a design table to capture the sketch names and use excel to total up all the sketches etc..
Ok. Thanks John.
