Weldments - File Location for Custom Profiles

The default location for weldment profiles is install_dir\lang\language\weldment profiles.

The sub-folder structure within the weldment profiles folder determines the selections that appear in the Structural Member PropertyManager.

The Selections box from the PropertyManager and the corresponding Windows Explorer folder and file structure are set up as follows:
  • home folder. Contains one or more standard folders. In the example below, weldment profiles is the home folder, and contains two standard folders (ansi inch and iso). In the PropertyManager, the name of each standard folder appears as a selection in Standard.
  • standard folders. Contain one or more type folders, for example angle iron, c channel, pipe, and so on. In the PropertyManager, after a Standard is selected, the names of each of its type sub-folders appear in Type.
  • type folders. Contain one or more library feature parts. In the PropertyManager, after a Type is selected, the names of the library feature parts appear in Size.
