   ByVal Type As System.String, _
   ByVal Shape As System.String, _
   ByVal TopDelta As System.Double, _
   ByVal BottomDelta As System.Double, _

   ByVal Part As System.String _
Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As IAssemblyDoc
Dim Type As System.String
Dim Shape As System.String
Dim TopDelta As System.Double
Dim BottomDelta As System.Double
Dim Radius As System.Double
Dim Part As System.String
instance.InsertWeld(Type, Shape, TopDelta, BottomDelta, Radius, Part)
void InsertWeld( 
   System.string Type,
   System.string Shape,
   System.double TopDelta,
   System.double BottomDelta,
   System.double Radius,
   System.string Part
void InsertWeld( 
&   System.String^ Type,
&   System.String^ Shape,
&   System.double TopDelta,
&   System.double BottomDelta,

&   System.String^ Part



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


For the most up-to-date list of available types and shapes, see C:\ProgramData\SolidWorks\SolidWorks 20nn\lang\english\gtol.sym.

To programmatically select the top, stop, and contact faces for the weld bead and pass them as arrays, use IAssemblyDoc::InsertWeld2.
