Import of recommended welds

This article is also available in:

When importing a connection from CAD software, there is now an option to add recommended welds. When selected, a check for potentially missing welds is performed. Such welds are then added and imported along with the rest of the components.

Export of recommended welds

These welds might be missing due to an incorrect export, or perhaps they are not in the CAD model altogether. The added welds are then labeled as "recommended weld" in the tree of operations in IDEA StatiCa Connection.
