Weld bead type


Surface shape


Distance for the top surface delta, if appropriate


Distance for the bottom surface delta, if appropriate


Weld radius, if appropriate


Path and filename for the part used for the weld; this file is created and merged into your assembly

Array of faces from which to measure the top surface delta
Array of faces that define the beginning and the end of the weld bead
Array of faces that are joined by the weld bead


For the most up-to-date list of available types and shapes, see the text file gtol.sym, which is located in the SolidWorks default installation folder <installation_dir>\lang\english.

To create a weld bead by preselecting the top, stop, and contact faces, use IAssemblyDoc::InsertWeld.
