Use the Parameters tab in the Kingspan Eaves Brace Properties panel to control how the connecting members are defined within Tekla Structures.
|Grade||This is the material grade that will be used for all the parts in this macro.||The default setting is S390.|
|Part Pos Prefix||This specifies the prefix for the Part Pos Num that will be used for the ties.||The default setting is MB.|
|Part Pos Start Number||This specifies the start number for the Part Pos Num that will be used for the ties.||The default setting is 1.|
|Assembly Prefix||This specifies the prefix for the Assembly Pos Num that will be used for the ties.||The default setting is CR.|
|Assembly Start Number||This specifies the start number for the Assembly Pos Num that will be used for the ties||The default setting is 1.|
|Group||This sets the class that all parts will be included in.||The default setting is 99.|
|Purlin Cleat Rotation
|This controls the direction of the cleat attached to the purlin. If this is set to Left then looking to the eaves beam from the purlin, the cleat will be orientated so that it faces to the left. The Right option similarly causes the cleat to face to the right.||The default is set to Left.||
|Purlin Cleat Position
|This defines whether the purlin cleat attaches to the middle or edge holesmall hollow open throughout a part or assembly that is usually used for fastening parts with bolts or other such objects
Hole is created in the same way as bolts and hole properties are defined in the bolt properties.
on the purlin.
|The default is set to Middle.|
|Eaves Beam Strut Cleat
(Vertical - NB1, Horizontal - NB2)
|This changes the eaves strut configuration to be used.||The default is set to Vertical - NB1.|
|This specifies the direction the strut faces.||The default is set to In.||
|Eaves Beam Cleat Rotation
|This controls the direction of the cleat on the eaves beam when using Vertical - NB1 cleat.||The default is set to Left.|
|Offset||This offsets the position of the restraint from the standard location along the member length by the entered distance.||The default setting is 0.|
