Learn about creating advanced weldments.
- [Instructor] In this example, we're going to be going over…some methods for creating a weldment.…Now, the first thing I want to do…is take a look at this part here…which is a pretty complex frame…that we're going to be creating into a weldment…and then over here,…I have the profile which I'd like to use.…So this is just a circle or a piece of tubing.…So the first thing I want to refresh your memory about…is actually saving this profile out.…Now, I've already got the profile defined…and here's the sketch so I'm going to go head up to…File, Save As, make this a weldment profile…so Library Feature Part, here it is.…
Come over here to Exercise Files,…remember, we save things in the Templates folder…and I have this folder called WeldmentProfileDone.…I'm going to put that right in there…and this one's going to be called P2.…Pretty sneaky with my naming convention here.…So P2 for profile number two and click on Save.…Alright, so now that's saved out,…you can see over here, it does have a little L,…denoting that it is a Library Feature Part.…
Join Gabriel Corbett as he reviews the exam requirements, along with testing techniques and tips to make more effective use of your time. He refreshes your knowledge of fundamentals such as creating and saving weldment profiles, building sketches, trimming and extending weldments, applying corner treatments, and creating end caps and gussets. He also covers advanced weldment creation, profile alignment, and weldment cut lists. Last, but not least, he reviews questions from a sample exam and provides pointers for measuring parts correctly and verifying the unit system.
