Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding the Cut list to the drawing, part of Weldments with SOLIDWORKS.
- In this video, we're going to be going through…and adding a cut list to this drawing.…Now we're starting off from where we left off…in the last moive, and you can see here…I've got a top view, I've got a front…and righthand view as well as an isometric view.…And we want to just add a cut list…so we know which pieces are in this model…and how long they are.…So go up here to Insert, Tables…and come all the way down here to Weldment Cut List.…So to do that, I'm going to choose one of the models…in the view to add the cut list to.…
And I normally like to choose the isometric view.…Once you've done that, you've got a couple choices here.…You can choose the template, you can choose configurations…if you had some, the numbers you want to start at,…the borders, stuff like that.…I'm just going to use the defaults and click on OK…and place that cut list right there.…And notice you're saying, hey, obviously I can see…there's quite a few pieces here,…but there's nothing in my cut list.…What's going on?…Let's go back to the model and fix that up.…
See how to build assemblies from weldments and add gussets, weld beads, and end caps. Then find out how to automatically generate documentation such as weldment cut lists and weld tables to add to your drawings. To wrap up the course, Gabriel offers tips and tricks for fabricating your finished design, such as using standard-sized materials for quick and easy production.
