Shear plate tube column (189): 1stSecBolts and 2ndSecBolts tabs

Use the 1stSecBolts tab and the 2ndSecBolts tab to control the properties of the bolts that connect the shear tabcomponent object that represents a plate welded to the component main part and bolted to the web of the component secondary part

to the first and the second secondary part(1) part that exists in a building object and that is connected to the main part

(1) Secondary part can be an assembly secondary part or a cast unit secondary part.

(2) input part that the user selects after selecting the component main part when creating a component

(2) A component can have none, one or more component secondary parts.

in Shear plate tube column (189).

Bolt group dimensions




Dimension for horizontal bolt group position.


Bolt edge distance.

Edge distance is the distance from the center of a bolt to the edge of the part.


Number of bolts.


Bolt spacing.

Use a space to separate bolt spacing values. Enter a value for each space between bolts. For example, if there are 3 bolts, enter 2 values.


Dimension for vertical bolt group position.


Define which bolts are deleted from the bolt group.

Enter the bolt numbers of the bolts to be deleted and separate the numbers with a space. Bolt numbers run from left to right and from top to bottom.

Bolt group orientation





AutoDefaults can change this option.




Bolts are staggered in the direction of the secondary part.


Square bolt group is positioned horizontally.


Square bolt group is sloped in the direction of the secondary part.

Staggering of bolts




Not staggered

AutoDefaults can change this option.

Not staggered

Staggered type 1

Staggered type 2

Staggered type 3

Bolt basic properties




Bolt size

Bolt diameter.

Available sizes are defined in the bolt assembly catalog.

Bolt standard

Bolt standard to be used inside the component.

Available standards are defined in the bolt assembly catalog.


Gap between the bolt and the hole.


Thread in mat

Defines whether the thread may be within the bolted parts when bolts are used with a shaft.

This has no effect when full-threaded bolts are used.



Location where the bolts should be attached.


Slotted holes

You can define slotted, oversized, or tapped holes.





Vertical dimension of slotted hole.

0 , which results in a round hole.

Slotted creates slotted holes.

Oversized creates oversized or tapped holes.

No hole does not create holes.

The selected check boxes define which component objects (bolt, washers, and nuts) are used in the bolt assemblyset of bolt elements that consists of a bolt, a stud, or a screw, and possibly the related washers and nuts


If you want to create a 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.

only, clear all the check boxes.

To modify the bolt assembly in an existing component, select the Effect in modify check box and click Modify.
