Weldments for Buggy and Frame

SolidWorks Weldments are a great tool for creating frames for a buggy, fsae/formula student car frames, robot frames, and support frames.  Begin with a sketch and then chose your cross section member or define your cross section member.  Add gussets and weld beads to complete the assembly.  A cut list is available from the drawing.

The movie shows the methods to create a buggy using weldments.  The model file and drawing contains the frame.  The steps to create the frame and cut list drawing are availalble from help, solidworks tutorials.  Marie
