Define automatic model weld properties in drawings

You can define what the model welds look like in your drawings before you create the drawing.

  1. On the Drawings & reports tab, click Drawing properties and select the drawing type.
  2. Load drawing properties that are as close to the ones you need as possible.
  3. Single-part and assembly drawings: Click View creation , select the view and the properties that you want to change, and click View properties.
  4. Click Weld.
  5. On the Content page, define the visibility settings:
    • In Welds and Welds in sub-assemblies , select Not visible , Site weld visible , Workshop weld visible , or Both visible.
    • In Weld size limit , enter a weld size to filter out welds of that size and bigger.

      This is useful when you only want to show non-typical welds in a drawing.

      To set whether the weld size is an exact or minimum value, use the advanced option XS_WELD_FILTER_TYPE.

      To filter out a standard weld type, use the advanced option XS_OMITTED_WELD_TYPE.
