Example: Dimension anchor bolt plans
Here are some examples of what the dimensions in anchor bolt plans look like in different situations.
First an example of a typical situation, where all columns are located in grid linesingle line that visualizes a single grid plane on a view plane
If the column reference pointpoint that Tekla Structures creates when the user creates a model object, the point being visualized as a handle
The reference points follow the model object if it is moved. They are only deleted if the related model object is deleted.
Reference points can be selected as snap points in a snap switch.
is not located on the grid line, Tekla Structures dimensions the reference point automatically relative to the gridmodeling aid that represents a three-dimensional complex of horizontal and vertical planes
In Tekla Structures, grids are used as an aid in locating objects in a model. The grid is shown on the view plane by dash-and-dot lines. It is also possible to show grids and grid line labels in drawings, and to modify grid properties in the drawings.
It is possible to have more than one grid in a model. For example, a large-scale grid for the entire structure, and smaller grids for some detailed sections.
lines. See the example below.
If the column is rotated relative to the drawing, the rotation is also automatically dimensioned. See the example below.
If you set the advanced option XS_ANCHOR_BOLT_PLAN_USE_VIEW_COORDSYS_FOR_BOLT_DIMENSIONS to FALSE and create the drawing, all dimensions are in the drawing coordinate system.
