Lesson 1: Weldments Features

The first lesson of this course helps the user to understand how the weldment feature affects a part model. Structural members are introduced and the user is taught how to manage corner treatments and trimming.

Lesson 2: Working with Weldments

Lesson 2 looks at adding and managing cut list item properties using the cut-list properties dialog, the weldment feature and bounding boxes. The lesson moves on to look at modifying and creating structural member profiles, applying material to individual solid bodies and inserting existing parts into weldment models.

Lesson 3: Configuring and Detailing Weldments

In lesson 3 the user will be taught how to represent post-assembly machining operations and weld beads as well as learning how to create drawing views of weldment models and individual bodies. Finally the user will learn how to insert cut lists and weld tables into their drawing.

Lesson 4: Working with Bent Structural Members

Lesson 4 of this course introduces the user to 3D sketches and creating bent structural members.

Lesson 5: Introduction to structure System

The final lesson introduces the user to the Structure System tool, an advanced Weldments environment. Teaching the user how to apply Primary and Secondary Members as well as the Corner Management tool. All while reinforcing the tools and knowledge gained throughout the previous lessons.
