Weld Beads on Single and Multibody Parts

You can now create and document weld beads on single and multibody parts.

The Weld Bead feature now enables you to create and document weld information in geometric cases such as:

  • Single body welds
  • Welds running between more than two components

You can choose between two weld settings:

  • Weld Geometry

    You define the geometric entities to be welded and the SOLIDWORKS software calculates the weld path.

  • Weld Path

    You select one or more edges or sketches from the same body or a different body to define the weld path.

In addition, you can hold rebuilds to improve performance, especially in large assemblies.
