You can add simplified weld beads to assemblies. Simplified weld beads provide a lightweight, simple representation of weld beads.
In previous versions of SolidWorks, you added weld beads as components of the assembly. This method is no longer supported. However, you can still edit existing weld bead components.
To add a weld bead to an assembly, do one of the following:
Click Assembly Features (Assembly tab on the CommandManager) and click Weld Bead .
- Click .
- Click Weld Bead (Weldments toolbar).
