Creating Fillet Welds

The basic idea behind a fillet weld is that you are joining two sets of faces. You can control the weld bead definition parametrically by using the parameters shown in Figure 10.12. This is known as leg length measurement. You can enter the two leg lengths used to generate the bead and also specify the throat measurement. Throat measurement is the distance from the root of the fillet weld to the center of its face. You just enter the throat length, and Inventor calculates the rest of the size of the weld bead. The offset value has relevance only when you declare the weld to be concave or convex. Figure 10.12 shows the two leg lengths and the two types of measurement.
