Learn about using the Trim/Extend command on weldments.
- [Instructor] In this movie, we're going to be…looking at trimming and extending different entities.…So in this case here, you can see,…we've got seven different segments…all coming together on this one pipe right here.…In the top, everything looks pretty good.…If you click actually on each one of these pieces,…you can see this one is actually cutting…all the way around on either side,…it's actually not being trimmed to this piece here.…Same thing, you end up with other problems over here.…See, this one actually is going all the way, wrapping around…so SolidWorks has a hard time really figuring out…how to trim some of these things…when you have complex joints…like you have in this one right here.…
So, what we want to do is go over here to trim and extend.…My bodies to be trimmed,…I want to kind of choose them one at a time,…so you can see here, I've got this one here…and it's protruding both directions.…So I'm going to choose that as the one I want to trim,…and I can trim to body.…So I want to trim to that body there,…
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.
