Materials in Weldment Cut Lists

Weldment cut lists recognize materials when determining whether bodies are identical.

If two bodies are geometrically identical but have different materials applied to them, they are placed in separate folders in the cut list.

You can apply a material to bodies within the weldment cut list. When you apply a material to a body, the cut list automatically updates by placing the body in the appropriate folder.

Applying Materials to Bodies

To apply a material to a body:

  1. In the part document, right-click a structural member and click Material.
  2. Click Edit Material or select a material in the menu.
