What’s the traditional way of creating a structure or an assembly of parts that make up a frame? If you answered create parts individually and create an assembly, I have some news for you!! SOLIDWORKS includes a feature called Weldments!
Weldments work at part level and require minimal time to create frames of any sort!
How do Weldments work?
To get started, all you need is a sketch, either a 2D or 3D will work depending on your requirements.
Then create a profile, standard profiles come with SOLIDWORKS such as tubes, channels, pipes, angles and much much more! More-so creating custom profiles is a breeze and can use your very own custom profiles in frames!
After you have the profile you want it’s as easy as selecting lines and assigning members.
You have full control over the model we can rotate the members or locate the profile as well as have different options for corners!
After everything is set SOLIDWORKS will group all the matching members and give us important information such as cut-lists and properties!
There are many benefits to Weldments such as saving time and developing costs, as well as increasing productivity!
There are many more time-saving features included with SOLIDWORKS, for more information please contact us.
