    That depends on how you like to show weldments in your design:

    1) Weldments as sub assemblies (recommended)
       1a - Draw each part in the same, or separate part studio
       1b - Create a new Assembly
       1c - Insert your parts into the assembly and add mates as required
       1d - Use BOM as a stock list for your drawings

    2) Weldments as monolithic solids within the SAME part studio
      2a - Draw each part in the same part studio
      2b - Use Boolean "Union" option to combine parts into a single part
      2c - Manually create a stock list in drawings

    3) Weldments as monolithic solids from SEPARATE part studios (not recommended)
      3a - Draw each part in a separate part studio
      3b - Create a new part studio, or choose one from the existing parts
      3c - Use Derived Part to add the additional pieces into your current part studio
      3d - Use transform / patterns as required to position your parts
      3e - Use Boolean "Union" option to combine parts into a single part
      3f - Manually create a stock list in drawings

    4) Weldments as monolithic solids in same parts studio naturally
     4a - Draw your first part in a part studio
     4b - Draw your second part in position and select the ADD option on any extrude/pattern command
     4c - Manually create a stock list in drawings
