End Welds
Use end welds in part or assembly models to connect plates. Plates can be curved and placed at oblique or right angles, such as T or L configurations. Using the end weld, the shell mesh from one plate is extended to meet the mesh from the base plate, as shown here:
End welds also close the gaps in solid models and fix overlapping volumes.
You can use end welds to join the following entities:
Entities to be Joined

After Meshing
solid surfaces

solid surfaces to shell surfaces
To define an end weld, click Refine Model > Weld to open the Weld Definition dialog box. After you create an end weld, you can edit or delete it by selecting the associated icon on the model tree and use the right mouse button to select Edit Definition or Delete, as appropriate.
