Edit/Modify Weld Symbology

If I use this weld symbol (Contour-Flush / Finish-Grind), the distance between the weld and the Grind is too great.

Can this distance be changed/modified and if so can someone explain how? PLEASE!

 

 

 

This placement is much more acceptable (It's a fillet weld)

 

PLEASE help.

 

Thanks!

It's creo 3, sorry.  Try this one. I still had a working copy of Creo 2.

Re: Edit/Modify Weld Symbology

Is this the standard weld symbols that come packaged with Creo? It sure looks like it.

I'm not 100% sure about the pre-packaged welds, for this drawing only, you should be able to the annotate tab, select the drop down arrow next to custom symbol and choose symbol gallery, redefine, pick the symbol you would like to modify and edit the symbol to your liking.

The problem you will likely have is that weld symbols are complicated and creo's symbol editing is horrible, to say the least.

Re: Edit/Modify Weld Symbology

See attached symbol...I thought I would give it a shot. It's not too bad but that simple modification, if you need to use other options like root opening or root angle won't fit right anymore.

I added "_MOD" to the end of the symbol file name so there wouldn't be an issue.

Yes. Creo 2.0 out of the box...

I was looking and it is hieroglyphics

Re: Edit/Modify Weld Symbology

Creo Version?

I cannot open the file..

I'm using 2.0

Re: Edit/Modify Weld Symbology

They are awesome!!! I use a custom built weld symbol that does virtually every weld in one symbol...it's impenetrable!!!

Re: Edit/Modify Weld Symbology

Yours looks great! Thanks!

I would still like to edit mine (just to know how)

It seems the items I need to relocate are here

I guess just make a new renamed copy of my symbol and salt to taste...

I appreciate it.

Re: Edit/Modify Weld Symbology

Yes, I moved the flush, convex and concave lines (for some reason there are 2 of each) and the mess of grind, chip, etc. designations. When you modify them, it is only in that drawing. To access them for other drawings, you have save them using the "write" command in the symbol gallery and you have to make sure you save to a folder you can write to.

Re: Edit/Modify Weld Symbology

With a symbol in drawing it's easy.... it's easy to modify behind the tail.  In Creo 4.0 weld tools I struggle modifying from the default number into a note.  Ideas?

In the past as w/ the big Tractor Companies we teach to apply the prep cuts as assembly functions.  W/ the new Creo 4.0 weld tool I struggle to make that edge prep as an assembly function.  Instead the tool defaults to a part cut.  I wonder if the development team made a mistake or I am mistaken and don't notice the config.pro or some other setting.
