Custom Operations for Weldments

You can create custom operations to apply additional costs to weldments. Typically, these are costs for features that are not modeled in the part, such as painting or shipping.

To use custom operations:

  1. Create custom operations, either in the template or in the CostingManager. Single-body weldments use the machining template and multibody weldments use the multibody template.
  2. Apply custom operations so the Costing tool uses them when calculating the cost of the part.
