Creates a welding symbol.



Select the entity to attach the welding symbol and specify the points for its location. The Weld Symbol dialog box opens, where you can customize the weld symbol.

Hay dos casos de uso:
  1. When creating a new drawing that will contain mechanical entities:
    1. Configure la variable del sistema LOADMECHANICAL2D en ON (1).
    2. Inicie un nuevo plano utilizando una plantilla Mechanical2d.
  2. When opening a drawing that contains mechanical entities
    1. Configure la variable del sistema LOADMECHANICAL2D en ON (1).
    2. Open an existent ACM drawing and you can start special symbols creation.
Note: These symbols are compatible with the legacy AutoCAD® Mechanical application.
Note: The symbol will be added to the AM_5 layer.
Note: After opening a drawing that contains mechanical entities, filling other drawings with mechanical-related data will be done on-demand. It will be possible when a user copies the mechanical-related entities to the non-mechanical drawing. In case of copying entities that are not related to the mechanical data, a non-mechanical drawing will not be filled with mechanical data.

After creating the symbol prototype with the AMWELDSYM command, you can configure the exact welding symbol's properties from the Properties panel:


All Around
Toggles the visibility of the All Around symbol in the welding symbol.
Field weld
Toggle the visibility of the Field weld symbol in the welding symbol.
Note tail
Displays the state of the note tail.
Process notes
Defines the process notes.
Chooses between move and mirrored stagger for intermittent welds on both sides.
Flip symbol
Chooses between left and right aligned for weld symbol.
