You can use any combination of text and the following options as the value for the above advanced options. Enclose each option in % characters. To use special characters enter a backslash (\) followed by an ASCII number. You can use the options in any order, and make calculations.

  • BOLT_NUMBER

  • DIAMETER

  • LENGTH

  • HOLE.DIAMETER

  • LONG_HOLE_X

  • LONG_HOLE_Y

  • LONGHOLE_MIN (the shorter of the slotted 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.

    dimensions)

  • LONGHOLE_MAX (the longer of the slotted hole dimensions)

  • BOLT_STANDARD

  • BOLT_MATERIAL

  • BOLT_ASSEMBLY_TYPE

  • BOLT_COUNTERSUNK

  • BOLT_SHORT_NAME

  • BOLT_FULL_NAME

Example

Example of using the advanced options:

XS_LONGHOLE_MARK_STRING_FOR_SIZE=D%HOLE.DIAMETER%(%HOLE.DIAMETER+LONG_HOLE_X%x%HOLE.DIAMETER+LONG_HOLE_Y%)

XS_SITE_HOLE_MARK_STRING_FOR_SIZE=D%HOLE.DIAMETER%

Please note that for calculations the operator (+, -, *, /) must not be outside the "%" marks:

Correct: %OPTION1*OPTION2%

Incorrect: %OPTION1%*%OPTION2%

For example, if OPTION1 = 5.0 and OPTION2 = 3.0, the results would be "15" and "5*3"
