Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding welded corners, part of SOLIDWORKS 2013-2017: Sheet Metal Design.
The welded corner feature in SolidWorks provides a visual representation of a…weld, and allows you to get a semi-accurate weight measurement.…This also carries over to drawings, and the welds can be shown.…To get started, let's take a look at a few examples.…In this corner here, I've got a closed corner, corner to corner, butt corner, and…I have the open bend region here. You can try closing up the bend region, if…you want, but with for thicker materials a lot of the times you'll make the weld…feature fail. Or have errors.…So in this case, it's open and I'm going to go up to the Sheet Metal, come…over here to Corners, and use the welded corner.…
I'm going to choose this face here and as soon as I click on that, you can see it…fills that in with a representation of what's going to happen when I click on the…welded corner. Generally when you are doing welded…corners, you want to have your 2 edges very close together like this so you have…a butt corner, or even a little bit of an overlap, here.…When the weld cools, it doesn't warp your part.…
