Unitechnik export: Line attributes tab

Unitechnik export: Line attributes tab

Use the Line attributes tab to control the Unitechnik export properties. Sometimes line attribute values that are exported in the Unitechnik files are not suitable for the particular situation. For example, to preserve lightness in the model, you might have fewer chamfers in the model than there will be in the actual structure. For this reason, you might want to override some line attributes in the export so that the model remains light, but the exported Unitechnik files are correct. You can do this by using the options on the Line attributes tab.

Option

Description

Export line attributes for contour

Select whether the line attribute values are used for contours ( Export line attributes for contour ) or for holes ( Export line attributes for cutouts ) in the export.

  • None

    Line attribute values are not used.

  • All lines

    Line attribute values are used for all lines.

  • Outmost lines only

    Line attribute values are used only for the outermost lines in the part:

This option is available only for contours.

Border line overriding

You can enter up to six border line modifications in the line attribute export.

No border lines are overridden.

Vertical outermost border lines at the start are overridden.

Horizontal outermost border lines at the bottom are overridden.

Vertical outermost border lines at the end are overridden.

Horizontal outermost border lines at the top are overridden.

Vertical outermost border lines are overridden.

Horizontal outermost border lines are overridden.

Horizontal and vertical outermost border lines are overridden.

 

All inclined outermost border lines are overridden.

All outermost border lines are overridden.

All vertical border lines, except the outermost border lines are overridden.

All horizontal border lines, except the outermost border lines are overridden.

All vertical and horizontal border lines except the outermost border lines are overridden.

All border lines except outermost border lines are overridden.

All border lines except the horizontal and vertical outermost border lines are overridden.

All border lines are overridden.

Orig. attr, New attr.

Define the original attribute ( Orig. attr ) and the attribute that will be used in the export ( New attr. ).

In the example below the horizontal outermost border line at the top would get a line attribute value 0033 originally, but the value will be overridden, and the line attribute value in the Unitechnik file will be 0040.

Export line attributes for cutouts

Select whether all line attributes are exported for holes.

Export angle of 1st and last vertical border Select whether you want to export the angle of cut at the first and last vertical border.
