Parameters

Dim1

First text value to the left of the symbol

Weld symbol name (see Remarks)

Dim2

Text value to the right of the symbol

Symmetric

True puts the symbol above and below the horizontal line

FieldWeld

True puts a flag for field welding

ShowOtherSide

True puts Dim1, Symbol, and Dim2 on the other side of the horizontal line

DashOnTop

True puts the dash line on top

Peripheral

True puts a peripheral symbol

HasProcess

Remarks

The symbol argument specifies the weld symbol name. You can find a list of names in the text file gtol.sym, which is located in the SolidWorks default installation folder <installation_dir>\lang\english.

The syntax for the symbol argument is <Standard-Type>. For example, a JIS seam is <JWELD-JSM>, and an ISO seam is <WELD-JSM>. You must include the right- and left-angle brackets and separate the Standard and the Type with a hyphen.
