Description

Internal

Creates internal dimensions for secondary parts connected to the main part.

None creates dimensions for secondary parts.

Necessary creates only the dimensions that are necessary for assembling the parts.

All creates all dimensions for the secondary parts.

Main part overall dimensions

Once creates one overall dimension for the main part.

All creates overall dimensions for main parts in all views.

None creates no overall dimensions for the main part.

The Assembly part overall dimension settings have some effect on these options.

Assembly part overall dimensions

Length only creates overall dimensions for an entire assembly or cast unit in the x direction only.

All creates overall dimensions for an assembly or cast unit in all directions.

Off creates no overall dimensions for an assembly or a cast unit.

Main part work points

On creates a check dimension between the outermost work points.

Main part shape ( Shape dimensions )

On creates dimensions to show the shape of a main part.

By default, Tekla Structures automatically draws shape dimensions on both ends of a beam, even if the ends are symmetrical.

Main part radius dimensions (Radius dimensions)

On creates radius dimensions for curved chamfers and round holes in the main part.

This option is available only if you have set Main part shape dimensions to On.

Note that this option does not create radius dimensions for curved beams or polybeams with chamfers.

Bevel dimensions

On creates linear dimensions of a bevel.

Bevel angle

Creates an angle dimension and defines which side of the bevel to dimension. The choices are None , Angle of cut and Angle of beam.

Knock off dimensions

On creates check dimensions from the edge of the main part to the work point.

Preferred dim side

Sets the preferred view (front or side) for part dimensions.

From the nearest floor level to part

On creates dimensions indicating the distance from the closest floor level to the bottom and/or top of the parts.

From grid to part center line
