"As welded" or "As machined" flag on configuration

"As welded" or "As machined" flag on configuration

Hi evrybody ;

when we use the weldement part, we don't use differences between the two configurations.

So, we rename the two configurations or suppress the derived one.

Our problem is now that we can't insert a Weldment Cut List in a drawing, because of SOlidworks only use the "As welded" configuration for write a cut list.

I think it's only a flag, but I don't find how set down it by API.

Maybe someone know the problem or as a tip ?

As far as I know there is no setting for changing this.  Simpliest thing to do is not delete the "as welded" configuration.  It really does not hurt anything.

Regg ;

thanks for your reply.

Unfortunatly, our choice wasn't the best. I'll try to fix this way to work ... and it won't be easy ...
