Learn how to create a weldment profile on the exam.
- [Instructor] Question number one of the sample exam…asks us to create a profile and then create…a Weldment from that.…If you look at this one here…here is the first example image…showing us the side of this Weldment Profile,…so it's a five millimeter radius on the corners…and we have an A and B dimension here…and then we have to download this little file here…and create a simple Weldment from that.…So pretty straightforward and easy.…Again, it's going to be a 10 16 alloy…and the A and the B are going to be 60 and 90,…let's jump over to SOLIDWORKS and see what we can do.…
Start on a new part.…Notice I already have a template that's a 1060 aluminum…in the millimeter system,…so I'm going to start with that one right there.…If you don't have the templates already loaded…I'd definitely recommend loading…the sample templates that I give you,…because a lot of parts we'll be using that 1060 aluminum…or steel and the millimeter, gram, and second unit system.…So I just save you a little bit of time…if you already have those templates pre-loaded.…
