The weldment profiles library included in the SOLIDWORKS installation is limited to a few cross sections in the ANSI Inch and ISO standards. Additional weldment profiles can be downloaded using this guide.
- Start SOLIDWORKS
- Click on the Design Library tab in the Task Pane
- Expand SOLIDWORKS content and go to Weldments
- While holding the CTRL key, select the weldment profile sets you would like to download, which are in ZIP format.
- Extract the ZIP file and place its contents in the Weldment Profiles folder specified in Tools > Options > System Options > File Locations. By default, it's located in C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SOLIDWORKS\lang\english\weldment profiles
The Structural Member Property Manager drop down list is now populated with the added Weldment Profiles.
