I installed AS2016. When I created my shop drawings I realized the plate weld preparation does not show neither on the shall parts nor on the assembly. Anyone had the same or similar issues with AS 2016?

Hello Laszlo, this could happen if the drawing style being use does not encompass the model object "Weld Preparation". To fix this issue, simply add the model object to your drawing style object presentation. See attached image. Best Regards

Tommy. Thanks for the response. I have the weld preparation in that drawing style. When I detail the small part plate the section view shows the angle of the weld preparation but does not show the visible cut. I believe the issue is deeper in the AS2016. I tried many drawing styles and none of the shows the plate weld preparation neither on the small part drawings or the assembly drawings. The beam weld preparations show on both. Is there anybody out there who can see the plate weld preparation with their AS2016 drawing style?

Hello Lazlo, I've attached a few images showing both MP and SP drawing styles that show weld preparations. It could be possible that you're not using the latest build of Advance Steel, do you have the R2 release installed?

Tommy. I did not have it installed until yesterday. I am checking it right now if it it is working. Can you check if it work when you create your plate weld preparation with the moment connection?

Laszlo, attached is an example of a moment connection being shown with the Beam assembly drawing style. Best Regards

Tommy. Your attachment shows the weld preparation on the beam and not on the continuity plate. I have no issues with the weld preparation on the beams only on the plates.

I got to the conclusion that the user setting and the advance setting of the drawings style is not the same in AS2016. My fix to this problem is: I exported the drawings from the advance setting and then imported it into the user setting. It seems to work for now.

Hello Laszlo,Attached is an image of two examples, a plate detailed alone and a plate attached to a beam. Both templates show the weld preparations. do you have the latest build of Advance Steel 2016? Type in the command line "AstorAbout" to see your build number, it should be build number 11149/Advance Steel 2016R2. Best Regards
