Specify properties for weldment cut lists.

Table Template

Click Browse for template to choose a standard or custom template. This option is available only during table insertion. The weldment cut list table templates supplied with the software add columns to the default format. They are located at: install_dir\lang\english. The standard template (cut list.sldwldtbt) creates ITEM NO., QTY., DESCRIPTION, and LENGTH columns.

Table Position

The stationary corner controls the direction in which the table expands when adding new columns or rows.

Set the Stationary corner to:

Top Left. New columns extend to the right and new rows extend below the anchor point.

Top Right. New columns extend to the left and new rows extend below the anchor point.

Bottom Left. New columns extend to the right and new rows extend above the anchor point.

Bottom Right. New columns extend to the left and new rows extend above the anchor point.

Attach to anchor point. Attaches the specified corner to the table anchor.

The Stationary corner option is not available when you first create the table. If the table is anchored on creation, the stationary corner is automatically selected on the drawing sheet in the quadrant nearest the table anchor.


Cut lists are usually based on the As Welded configuration.

Keep Missing Item
