The ABC of Weldment Profiles in SOLIDWORKS

 

ABC of Weldment Profile

I’ve seen lot many times people asking about the folder structure for weldment profiles in SOLIDWORKS. The folder structure for weldment profile is simply ABC.

ABC of Weldment Profile

A is the path for the folder that contains the Standard. For e.g. D:\Design Library\Weldments
B is the path for the folder that contains the Types. For e.g. D:\Design Library\Weldments\Inch
C is the path for the folder that contains the Sizes. For e.g. D:\Design Library\Weldments\Inch\10×20.SLDLFP

Weldment-ABC-3

So when setting up the weldment profile location, you need to set the location of A under Tools > Options > System Options > File Locations > Weldment Profiles
