Storing Custom Profiles in the Existing Folder Structure

You can file your custom profile in the folder structure that SolidWorks provides, or you can create a separate folder structure.

To store custom profiles in the existing folder structure, do one of the following:

  • Add a new profile part to any of the type folders.

    For example, you can store a custom profile part in the square tube folder, which is a sub-folder of the iso folder.

    In the PropertyManager, when you select iso in Standard and square tube in Type, the name of your custom profile part appears as one of the selections in Size.

  • Add a new type folder in an existing standard folder, and store your custom profile part in the new type folder.

    For example, in the iso folder, create a folder named specials. Then store your custom profile parts in specials.

    In the PropertyManager, when you select iso in Standard, specials appears as one of the selections in Type. When you select specials in Type, the names of your custom profile parts appear in Size.

  • Add a new standard folder in the weldment profiles folder, create a type folder in the standard folder, and store your custom profile part in the type folder.

    For example, in the weldment profiles folder, create a folder named My specials. In the My specials folder, create folders named My pipe and My square tube. Then store your custom profile parts in My pipe and My square tube.

    In the PropertyManager, My specials appears as one of the selections in Standard. When you select My specials, My pipe and My square tube appear in Type. When you select My pipe or My square tube, the names of your custom profile parts appear in Size.
