Weldment Design Stages
Now that you've explored the tools available in the weldment environment, you'll explore how to document the four major stages of weldment design in the drawing. You can create a weldment drawing in the following stages:
- Assembly: As-assembled with no assembly features
- Preparation: As-prepped
- Welds: As-welded
- Machining: As-machined
Figure 10.38 shows a weldment in the four stages during its creation. Figure 10.39 shows drawing views of the same weldment detailed at the various stages.
