Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding in a weld table, part of Weldments with SOLIDWORKS.
- Once you've created a drawing inside of SolidWorks…of a weldment, then we might want…to add in a weld table.…To add in a weld table, it's pretty straightforward.…So go up to Insert, come down here to Tables,…and click on Weld Table.…Once you've selected the Weld Table, it's going to…ask us for one of the different views to choose,…and I'm going to choose the isometric view,…and you can look over here, we have a bunch…of different defaults we can choose from,…I'm just going to go ahead and choose…and accept those, click "okay."…And here is my Weld Table.…
Just drop it on your drawing somewhere.…You're noticing, "Hey, there's no welds in there."…Well, that's probably a problem, so we need to go back…and we need to add some welds, because,…when we built this assembly, even though we built…all these mitered corners, we didn't ever add in…the exact welds of where we wanted…these things welded together.…But we do have a table now, so that's a start.…So let's go back to this drawing here,…actually the part, and add in a few welds.…
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.
