Drawing Properties

This advanced option lengthens unfolded tubes by the following multiplication factor:

factor = 1.0+2* XS_TUBE_UNWRAP_PAPER_THICKNESS /diameter

The default value is 0.0.


If the advanced option XS_TUBE_UNWRAP_WITH_CUT_HOLES is set to TRUE , this advanced option has no effect.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).



Tube d=219

When you set the advanced option to 0, the unwrapped length of the tube (1.0*PI*diameter) = 688.

When the advanced option is set to 10, the length of the unfolded tube = factor * diameter* PI = (1.0 + 2*10/219) * 219 * 3.14 = 751
