The chemical composition and the amount of the filling rod has to be added to the MDS.
There are several options. The best option is to add the filler rod material node to the component node (say one component node with a material node for the steel plate and the filler rod, for example).
Depending on how you created or received the steel plate MDS and the filler rod MDS you may have to use semi-components (2nd option) or use component nodes for the steel plate and the filler rod (least preferred option)
IMDS standard materials include many welding rods and many manufacturers have published their catalog products.
If the material is not standard, there are two options:
- the manufacturer enters the material and either publishes it or submits it to your account (preferred)
- you enter it based on the received chemical analysis of the wire (note: IMDS requires material declaration in the "shipped" state, not the received state)
