Weldment Cut Lists

You can use a weldment cut list table to add a BOM-like table for cut, welded structural shapes.

When the first weldment feature is inserted in a part, the Solid Bodies FM_SolidBodies_folder.gif folder is renamed to Cut list FM_CutList_NeedsUpdate.gif to indicate the items to include in the cut list. The icon FM_CutList_NeedsUpdate.gif indicates that the cut list needs to be updated. The icon FM_CutList_Current.gif indicates that the cut list is up-to-date.

Items that appear in the cut list must appear in the Cut list FM_CutList_NeedsUpdate.gif folder at the part level.


The option to automatically organize all of the weldment entities in the cut list is on by default in new weldment parts. To turn it off, right-click Cut list FM_CutList_NeedsUpdate.gif and clear Automatic.

Although the cut list is generated automatically, you manually specify when to update it in a weldment part document. This enables you to make many changes, then update the cut list once.
