First, you need to either convert this existing model to a Weldment, or start a new model as a weldment. Then enter the Weld Module. The rest is straight forward, or read the "Help"

I was able to weld the 2 end pipes but was not able to weld the middle pipe.I used the same technique as the 2 end pipes but could not get it to work.I also tried some other welds but again would not work...What technique is required to weld the middle pipe onto the bottom pipe?

Thanks....IJC

Your IAM file is useless without the required IPTfiles

The files you sent only contain a single part "Part1" and it's a flat plate with a slot and a couple of other holes.
