Disabling Automatic Creation of Derived Weldment Configurations

You can disable the automatic creation of derived configurations if you do not use these configurations.

Previously, the software automatically created derived configurations when you selected Weldments or created a structural member. This is still the default behavior. However, many users do not want derived configurations and choose to delete them.

To disable the automatic creation of derived weldment configurations and configuration description strings:

  1. In a new part, before inserting a weldment, click Options (Standard toolbar) or Tools > Options.
  2. On the Document Properties tab, click Weldments.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • To disable automatic creation of derived weldment configurations and configuration description strings, clear Create derived configuration.

      Assign configuration Description strings is cleared.

    • To disable only the assignment of configuration description strings, clear Assign configuration Description strings.
  4. Click OK.
