Model welds are welds that you have added in the model. In drawings, they are represented by weld seams and weld marks.
In this example, the first image below shows an example of weld properties in the model. You can add welds in the model by selecting one of the welding commands on the ribbon Steel tab. Some of the weld properties are numbered in image, and the second image shows how these properties are shown in a weld mark in a drawing. The same numbers are used in the weld mark to indicate the position and appearance of the property information in the weld.
(1) Edge/Around, weld around symbol is used
(2) Workshop/Site, site weld symbol is used
(3) Weld prefix
(4) Weld type
(5) Weld size
(6) Weld angle
(7) Weld contour symbol
(8) Weld finishing symbol
(9) Effective throat
(10) Root opening
The example below shows a staggered, intermittent weld. The length is set to 50 and the pitch to 100.
(1) Staggered, intermittent weld
(2) Length of weld segment
(3) Pitch (center-to-center spacing) of weld segments
The example below shows a non-staggered, intermittent weld. The length is set to 50 and the pitch to 100. The pitch is shown in the weld mark when the pitch value is greater than 0.0.
Below is an example of a continuous weld.
In this example, the staggered, intermittent weld option is selected, and the advanced option XS_AISC_WELD_MARK is set to FALSE to produce an ISO-compliant weld mark.
In this example, the staggered, intermittent weld option is selected like in the previous example, but the advanced option XS_AISC_WELD_MARK is set to TRUE to produce an AISC-compliant weld mark.
