Use this advanced option to control the rounding of notchcut in one component object or input part for receiving another component object or input part
corners. The default is FALSE.
This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options
There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).
The following example describes the concepts of notches, notch corners, notch corner roundings, and beam corners:
- The notch is at the beam corner
- The notch is not at the beam corner
- Three notches, other corners are ordinary corners
- Notch corner inner shape (or notch corner rounding) options in the NC File Settings dialog box
The table below shows how the XS_DSTV_CREATE_NOTCH_ONLY_ON_BEAM_CORNERS setting ( TRUE / FALSE ) and the Inner corners shape setting affect the 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.
|XS_DSTV_CREATE_NOTCH_ONLY_ON_BEAM_CORNERS set to FALSE||XS_DSTV_CREATE_NOTCH_ONLY_ON_BEAM_CORNERS set to TRUE|
|Inner corners shape = 0|
|Inner corners shape = 1|
