Fusion Weld Dots

I'm having an issue with the weld dots coming out on the ISO drawings. I'm using PPL end types and so the fastener is a Fusion weld, but when i go to create the ISO it comes back with Glue dots. Going into the connector config file I can change the glue joint to weld and everything works fine. Then there is the problem of actually wanting the glue welds to show up with the PSW end connection. Does anyone know where or how to change where the connection fasteners are pulling information from. I assume it would be as easy as changing fusion weld fastener to pull from another SKey, but no idea where that is located.

I am also looking into the same thing.

I noticed if you use any other type of end code, also with an unrelated SKEY but have "Fusion Weld" joint in your settings, you get no glued connector.


That said it must be PPL is pulling the Glued connector, but thats not mentioned in the SKEY block map, and not really in the isoconfig

Known issue, it's on the bug list. No word of when it will be fixed.
