Structural Frames and Welding: A Hands-on Experience

hi dear colleagues,

I have a simple welded steel pieces and when it comes to the global weight, I found out that the weld seam weight is not added

I'm wondering howCapture.JPG  I could I do that?

thanks in advance

Omar

Hi Omar,

it works fine for me (ST9 MP04). Did you add a density?

hi ckunkel,

thanks for your answer, I'm using ST9 MP04 too

but it doesn't work for me

I'm checking things out

Hi,

 

There is an another way, when you make weld beads on part level.

 

Here is a video:

hi lmics;

 

thanks for the answer 

i use it as part and it's working fine, but as a feature within an assembly the weld is not being taken into calculation

Hi @omarkadd

 

 

 

also when the welding is a feature in the ASM the mass is calculated properly.

 

see info above about the correct setting of the welding material and the density.

 

If there is no density defined, then no mass could be calculated or better sayed:

"Mass is calculated correctly with a value of 0!"

You may need to update the assembly weights. Even if every part has the right weight, assembly features have to be calulated in the assembly. That has it's own switch for automatic on save or not. If that is off (Common for faster saves) then you have to tell it to update the weight.
