Database Systems for CAD
The paper presents the methodology for creating a 3D CAD database for standard steel profiles that are available on the market for the purpose of their application for constructions. In this paper we developed a methodology that enables us to create the base of all standard steel profiles in the CAD system, using a file in the “Library Feature Part” format. After designing the construction in the 3D sketch, the “Weldements” command selects the appropriate profile from the database and creates the 3D construction. The “Filet Bead” option is used for the welded join, then the surfaces are selected to be joined and that define the type and thickness of the welded join.
