Lyle,

The ProE Weld functionality is not related to MECHANICA's weld functionality. Two separate animals.

Pro/WELD is nice for making it all looking nice on the assembly model and to
get the weld detail info to show up properly on the drawing. Also good for
calculating how much weld you'll need to fabricate the structure.

But it creates a surface and nothing more. So if you try and use that in
Mechanica then you'll not have much of use.

If you want a high level of detail on your Mechanica model with all parts
and weld meshed in solids then you'll need to build your own weld part
geometry using swept sections etc.....
