Use the Parts tab in the Kingspan Eaves Beam to Stanchion Properties panel to control the member properties of the items created by the joint. By default this connection creates a single Kingspan item, changing any of the default profiles will result in the individual parts being seperate welded items.
|Connecting Profile||This specifies a profile to be used for the centre portion of the fixing bracket. The profile will be positioned according to its type, ie. a channel or angle will be placed with its back aligned to the centre of the plates where as a rectangular hollow section would be placed centrally.||The default setting is L100*75*8.|
|Stiffener||This specifies the stiffener profile to be used where the standard manufacturer's is not to be used.||The default profile will be determined appropriately from the model data.|
|Plate||This specifies the profile to be used for the plate where the standard manufacturer's plate is not to be used. The plate, and its associated data is defined in the data files. To override the plate use the t,b,h values featured below.||The default plate will be determined appropriately from the model data.|
|Plate, t||This sets the thickness of the plate which is connected to the stanchion in the joint if the fixing bracket is bolted.||The default setting is 10mm.|
|Plate, b||This sets the width of the plate which is connected to the stanchion in the joint if the fixing bracket is bolted.||The default setting is 160mm.|
|Plate, h||This sets the height of the plate which is connected to the stanchion in the joint if the fixing bracket is bolted.||The default height will be determined appropriately from the bolt data.|

2. Start number
Some connections have a second row for the part position number where you can enter the assembly position number.

|Material||This is the material grade that will be used for the fitting bracket created in the joint.||The default value for this is taken from File menu --> Settings --> Options --> Components --> Part material.|
