Learn about how to add a cut list to the drawing.
- [Instructor] In this example we're going to be looking at creating a drawing from a Weldment. Now you can see I have this Weldment part here. And I'm going to go ahead and create a drawing. Click on File. Make Drawing from Part. I'm going to use my default template. Click on OK. And then I'm going to go ahead and just drag in an isometric view to my drawing. And then come up here, select that first and then click on Insert + Tables + Weldment Cut List. Go ahead and use the default and click on OK. Just go ahead and drop that in. Now you can see here, we've got items one through four, but it's actually only three items here.
So go ahead and click on the balloon. We'll say this first item here is actually going to be four. The leg is going to be one, and then this piece here is going to be three, and this one over here is going to be two. Now the problem is, number four is that Sub-weldment we created in an earlier video. I actually don't really want that so let's go back and change it. So go over here and click on Open the Part. And notice I have that item number four here is that Weldment Sub-assembly. Go ahead and Right-Click on it and click on delete. We're just clicking on this one, hit delete on your keyboard.
You will then take that out and click on this folder here and delete it as well. That puts everything back in the top level. Now if we head back over to the drawing, you can see here that more items show up and now you can see we can then balloon out this item here at the end. And we've got all those items at the same time. They've all got a length. Now we can always add a new column if we wanted the angle cuts described. We can also open each one of these items here and give it a description. So if I go back to the individual pieces, if you Right-Click on this, then you can click on Properties, and inside your Properties you've got a whole bunch of information that you can layout and bring into your Weldmant Cut List.
And here's just an example of some of the basic stuff there. And you can see this is for item number three. You can click on four. Anything that adds this information individually per item in your Weldmant Cut List, so you can really put a lot of information about this, you know, how you want to cut it, what kind of saw you want to use, what kind of welding you might want to use. All that information could be easily added here. Just grab a new property from the drop-down. Give some information about it or bring it in from some of the references in the part. Like you can see here the length, the angle, and so on. It's all going to be defined here and of course we can bring that in to that Weldmant Cut List later on.
More than likely, you won't need to get into that level of detail on the exam, but I did want to point out, this is available to you if you need to use it. More than likely, you will need to do something very similar to this on the exam, so make sure you're aware of how to make a new drawing, bring in a Weldment Cut List, and then just maybe just do some sorting or something along those lines.
