XS_​CHAMFER_​ACCURACY_​FACTOR

XS_​CHAMFER_​ACCURACY_​FACTOR

Category : Speed and accuracy

Use this advanced option to define the number of points used for chamfers. Use lower values to increase the number of points used to construct the chamfer, thus making the curved chamfer smoother. Use larger values to decrease the number of points used to construct the chamfer, thus making the curved chamfer less smoother.

The default value is 4.0.

Restart Tekla Structures after changing the value to activate the new setting.

Note:

Even though the XS_CHAMFER_ACCURACY_FACTOR setting changes the appearance of the curved chamfers in the model, it does not affect the accuracy of the DSTV file.

In the example below, the value is 16.

In the example below, the value is 1.

There is a mistake in an additional note: this variable actually does affect the DSTV files (a simple example with round plate is enough to verify that).
Please correct the note, it's misleading.
