Gusset+T: Bolts tab

Use the Bolts tab to control the properties of bolts that connect the gussetcomponent object that represents a plate that connects braces to a beam, column, or base plate

plate(1) part that represents a flat structure

(1) In some contexts, for example in analysis, the term plate object may be used to refer to plates.

(2) plate that represents a steel structure

(2) Plate is mainly used as a connection piece or as a floor plate.

to the T profile in Gusset+T.

Bolt group dimensions

 

Description

Default

1

Minimum T profile extension for the top and bottom of the brace connection.

10 mm

2

Bolt edge distance.

40 mm

3

Number of bolts.

2

4

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.

Bolt basic properties

Option

Description

Default

Bolt size

.

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.

Bolt length increase

Define how much the bolt length is increased. Use this option when, for example, painting requires the bolt length to be increased.
