Use to define which weld types to omit in drawings. Enter the number of the weld type you want to omit. The default value is 10 (fillet weld). For more information about the weld types and the corresponding numbers, see List of weld types.

In addition to this advanced option there are two other settings that Tekla Structures uses to determine the welds that are shown in the drawing: XS_WELD_FILTER_TYPE tells if Tekla Structures should filter welds that are exactly (EXACT) the size or of the same size or smaller (MIN) than the value given in the Weld size limit box in the object or mark properties on the drawing viewview that includes selected model objects or an area in the model, that is represented in a drawing

A drawing view is a container for model and drawing objects.

A drawing can include several drawing views, which usually are two-dimensional views, plane views, to the model.

Examples of drawing views in Tekla Structures include main views, section views, single-part views, and 3D views.

level. Tekla Structures always shows welds that have reference text.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).



If you set XS_OMITTED_WELD_TYPE to 10, XS_WELD_FILTER_TYPE to EXACT, and Weld size limit to 5, Tekla Structures shows all other welds except those that are 5 mm, and those of type fillet weld (10). In this case, if you do not set XS_WELD_FILTER_TYPE, Tekla Structures shows all welds that are bigger than 5 mm except fillet welds.
