// Preconditions:
// 1. Ensure that WeldmentTableTemplate points to a weldment cut list template

//   (*.sldwldtbt) on your computer.
// 2. Rename the namespace of this macro to match the name of your C# project.
// 3. Open:

// <SolidWorks_install_dir>\samples\tutorial\weldments\weldment_box2.sldprt
// 4. Click File > Make Drawing from Part

//    (drag and drop one or more views onto the sheet).
// 5. Expand a drawing view in the FeatureManager design tree.
// 6. Right-click on weldment_box2.sldprt and select Open weldment_box2.sldprt.
// 7. Right-click on the cut list of the part and select Update.
// 8. Minimize the part and maximize the drawing.
// Postconditions:
// 1. The FeatureManager design tree contains Weldment Cut List1.
// 2. The drawing sheet displays a weldment cut list table

//    with 6 rows and 4 columns.
