Basics - Weldments

SOLIDWORKS Basics – Weldments Many real world designs use material cut from length. These designs may be fabricated from plastics, metals or woods, but irrespective of the material, all of these have one thing in common, an end profile that can be captured in 2D.

The shape and size of material profiles, such as 40 x 40 x 2mm box section, never changes, so why keep sketching the same thing over and over throughout the course of your design? Well, with SOLIDWORKS Weldments, you don’t have to. A library stores all of your profiles and all you have to do is create a frame sketch for where each length should run.

SOLIDWORKS Weldments are a great time saver and a must for anyone designing with material cut from length. This webcast will guide you through the basics of getting started with Weldments.

Throughout the course of this webcast we will look at;

  • Creating a custom Weldment profile
  • Adding properties to Weldment profiles
  • Sketching a frame
  • Adding Structural Members
  • The Trim tool
  • Cut-Lists

This webcast is suitable for those who have recently completed, or are due to complete, the SOLIDWORKS Weldments training course.
