Find Welds Between Primary and Adjacent Parts

Find welds on the edges between a single primary part and a group of adjacent parts.

  1. On the Connections workbench toolbar, click (Create seam weld).
  2. In the dialog, define the Section size (the length measured from the toe to the root of the weld).
  3. Define the Minimum length.
    Note: Any geometric edges found that are less than the minimum weld length will not receive a weld.
  4. Optional: Activate the Intermittent weld checkbox to specify intermittent welds.
    Note: Two parameters, weld pitch and weld segment length, are required for intermittent welds. the pitch must be greater than the segment length.

  5. Click the Primary weld tab in the Create seam welds dialog.
  6. Select primary and secondary part(s)
    1. Verify the Primary part radio button is selected.
    2. Click on a part in the modeling window to select a primary part.
    3. Activate the Secondary part(s) of primary part radio button.
    4. Click on parts in the modeling window to choose the secondary part(s).
    Note: It is possible to create a connection between multiple faces on a single part. To do so, select the same part in both the master and mate part fields.
  7. Click the Find welds button.
    All welds found will be shown in the Welds found list. Each weld you select will be highlighted on the model.
  8. Optional: Use the Delete button to remove unwanted welds from the Welds found list.
