Drawing View

Use to specify the criteria used when comparing section views. If section views are different, they will be visible and will receive a unique section markuser-created symbol that includes a set of mark elements, identifies a section, and is displayed in the source view

. By default, section views are compared based on the boundaries of the parts ( EXTREMA ) and the orientation of the parts in the view ( ORIENTATION ). The advanced option may contain a combination of the following options separated by a comma:

  • POSITION compares position numbers of all the parts in the view (including non-dimensioned parts).

  • EXTREMA compares the boundaries of the parts in the view.

  • ORIENTATION compares the orientation of the parts in the view.

  • SHOWALL considers all section views different and displays them with unique section marks.

  • EXACT uses more rigid rules when comparing section views. Use in combination with the options EXTREMA or ORIENTATION.

This advanced option is role specific. When the type SYSTEM(ROLE) is in use, the default value is used. When the type MODEL(ROLE) or DRAWING(ROLE) is in use, you can change the value, which is then the same for all users in the current modelmodel that is active in Tekla Structures

The current model can be a single-user model, a shared model or a working model.
