i am trying to add ansi inch aluminum angles data to my structural member selections.
i put these files in C:\solidworks data\weldment profiles\ansi inch\alum angles\.......
is this the proper path and how do i get it to see them???
Under Tools, Options , File Locations, add your path in the Weldment Profiles section. I save mine in a folder that is easier to find. I think the default data is under C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks\data\weldment profiles
if you want to add to Design Library, try clicking the second button at the top of the DL tab, Add New Folder. The step I gave above was to add them to the weldment tool.
i added the path to the file s path above which is where i had them and still nothing???
ok i put them in C:\solidworks data\weldment profiles\ansi inch\alum. angle\
and still nothing
Try this location
I think you gave too much info to SW
C:\solidworks data\weldment profiles
ok that gets alum. angle to show up in type then my sizes window is blank
so c:\solidworks data \weldment profiles\
got me that far now what do i need for sizes to show up?
Move aluminum angle data to same level as steel profiles
Alum angles would be same level as ANSI Inch
C:\solidworks\data\weldment profiles\alum angles
C:\solidworks\data\weldment profiles\ANSI Inch
thank you i have both ansi and iso all installed now on that level!!!
