Set this advanced option to TRUE to insert two length values in NC DSTV files:

  • Gross length

  • Net length

If you do not want to do this, set this advanced option to FALSE. FALSE is the default value.

Gross length

Net length

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).



Net and gross length may switch places in 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.

if the advanced option XS_CHECK_FLAT_LENGTH_ALSO is set. Then Tekla Structures may use the length value it finds in the fltprops.inp file instead.
