- [Instructor] For question number four…of the sample exam, we need to create some vertical legs.…And what that means to me is a 3D sketch.…And notice that they're giving us a note one,…saying create a 3D sketch.…We need to have a zero gap between the segments.…And the Weldment profiles will be defined…as this image here, so we need to make…some little segments here that connects those together.…And over here we have a detailed view…showing what that should look like.…All right?…So let's go ahead and head over to Solidworks…and see what we can do.…All right, so the first thing I want to do…is create a structural member.…
Now we already have a structural member here…and because we're using the same one,…I can go back and actually edit that one.…So I'll go over here and create a new group.…I can choose this line right here.…And notice as soon as I bring that in,…it does add the structural member,…but it's coming at a funny angle here.…I'm not sure why it's coming at that angle,…but either way, let's go ahead and make sure…
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.
