Learn about locating a profile.
- [Instructor] In this example I'm going to show you…how to locate a weldment profile.…Now you can see here I've got this…square or rectangular section of a weldment here.…And it's using the center of this shape…as its path for creating the weldment profile.…Now I'm going to go ahead and go ahead and change that…so go over here to the feature itself.…Click on Edit Feature, and you can see here…we're using the center point of that sketch.…So if we zoom in here on that sketch,…you can see we've got a bunch of these lines…we've created, which is nice.…
So I can come down here and click on Locate Profile.…Click on that one there.…And then what it's asking for or looking for now…is for me to click on a new point.…So if I click on this little point over here…notice it automatically moves the material up…and it uses that bottom corner to lie along…these line here, which creates that profile.…If again I wanted to change something else…it's pretty easy to do.…Just go back over here, click on Locate Profile again,…and choose one of these other profiles.…
