Creating Single Body Weld Beads

You can create a weld bead on a single body using Weld Geometry.

For example, if you have a rolled sheet metal part that forms a tube, you can create a weld bead to join the edges of the tube.

To create a weld bead on single body part:

  1. Click Weld Bead (Weldments toolbar) or Insert > Weldments > Weld Bead.
  2. In the Weld Bead PropertyManager, under Settings, select Weld Geometry.
  3. In Weld From, select a face of the slit.
  4. In Weld To, select the opposite edge.
    If you select a face for Weld From, you must select an edge for Weld To.
    A preview of the weld between the selected face and edge displays.
  5. Set the Bead Size dim_rad.png.
  6. Click .
