NC export improvements
Tekla Structures 2017 introduces a couple of improvements in pop-marks and NC filefile that contains information gathered from a model and exported to computer numerical controlled fabrication machinery
Tekla Structures produces NC files in several formats, for example, DSTV.
New option allowing pop-marks for parts welded on site
The Pop-mark Settings dialog box now has a new option Add pop marks to parts welded on site that allows you to create pop-marks for parts that are welded on site.
Pop-marks created based on the weld primary and secondary part
Previously, pop-marks were created based on the assembly main and secondary parts. Now the pop-marks are created based on the weld primary and secondary part(1) part that exists in a building object and that is connected to the main part
(1) Secondary part can be an assembly secondary part or a cast unit secondary part.
(2) input part that the user selects after selecting the component main part when creating a component
(2) A component can have none, one or more component secondary parts.
Maximum diameter for circular cuts to be drilled
In NC file export , circular part cuts are now written as holes if the diameter of the cut is less than the value defined for the new setting Maximum diameter for circular cuts to be drilled in the NC file settings dialog box. Smaller internal circular cuts are converted to holes.
