Apply Materials to Welds

Apply material properties to welds in the assembly.

  1. In the Project Tree, click the Connections workbench.
  2. On the workbench toolbar, click > Apply material to seam welds.
  3. In the dialog, choose a material from the material tree and apply to all welds or selected welds.
    Note: If you do not assign materials to seam welds, automatic assignment will occur when an analysis is solved, based on what parts are connected to the weld. If parts with multiple materials are connected, the stiffer material is assigned to the weld.
