This applies only to profile shape BUT. You must manufacture the web face as a plate rather than a profile.

  1. Enable weld compensation for the part.

    1. Go to the Process Tab (Manufacturing Profile Properties Dialog Box) of the manufacturing profile properties or the Process tab of the manufacturing built-up member properties.

    2. Set the Weld Compensation process to Apply or User-defined.

    3. Click Finish.

      Smart 3D creates a weld compensation object for the part.

  2. Select the weld compensation object in the Workspace Explorer.

    The Weld Compensation Modify ribbon displays.

  3. Click Properties to view and edit weld compensation settings.

  4. Set the first weld compensation starting point by clicking 1st Point and then clicking on a point on the highlighted part. The default location is the midpoint.

  5. Click Accept to confirm the first point.

  6. Set the second weld compensation starting point by clicking 2nd Point and then clicking on a point on the highlighted part.

  7. Click Accept to confirm the second point.

    The weld compensation is applied from the starting point to the end of the part.
