Fillet edges in drawings
Fillet edges are lines that define the boundary between straight faces and curved faces in the model. Examples of model objects containing fillet edges are profiles with curved fillets, slabs or contour plates with curved chamfers, and curved polybeams. The fillet edges can be shown in all drawing types for parts and pours. Fillet edges are visible by default for new drawings, and invisible for drawings that are created in a Tekla Structures version earlier than 2016.
Show fillet edges in drawings
To show the fillet edges, you need to set the option Fillet edges to on. For profiles, Exact representationthe way that the information included in a model is represented visually
might be required to show the fillet edges, depending on the profile. You can control the fillet edge visibility in Part properties and in Pour object properties on drawing, view and object level.
To set the fillet edges visible on drawing level in a general arrangement drawingdrawing that is created from one or more model views and that shows information needed to understand the general arrangement of structural elements on a project
General arrangement drawings show how parts, assemblies, cast units, or pour objects are located in a building.
- Open a general arrangement drawing that contains steel or concrete parts with curved faces, for example, profiles with curved fillets, slabs or contour plates with curved chamfers, or curved polybeams.
- Double-click the drawing background to display the General arrangement drawing properties dialog box.
- Click Part or Pour object.
- If you need to change part representation for profiles, select Exact from the Part representation list.
- Under Additional marks , select the Fillet edges on/off check box.
- If needed, set the hidden lines options:
- Select the Hidden lines on/off check box to show the hidden lines of other parts.
- Select the Own hidden lines on/off check box to show the part's own hidden lines.
- Click Modify.
