First Item when thinking about weldments is knowing that your default setting when applying welds is “Aluminum 6061”. This could be important when understanding the true mass of your weldments. My video will show where to change this information for more accurate calculations. Another way my video does not show is when converting an assembly to a weldment you have an option there to choose material.
Second item is that it may be important to know the total length of weld beads used inside a assembly. Under your tools pull down menu is a selection for creating a weld bead report. This report is created inside a Excel file for easy use. Please check out the video of both topics.
