Notes

  • Any modification of the selected parts will cause this joint to be updated.
  • Primary member can be I Section, C Section / Channel, Compound C Section / Channel or Z Purlin.
  • Secondary members can be C Section, Compound C Section or Z Purlin. 
  • Secondary members must be perpendicular to the primary member and have the same orientation.
  • If two secondaries are to be connected, both secondaries must be of the same type and section depth.
  • If two secondaries are to be connected, secondaries must go to the web and their centre-lines must align.
  • If specific values are entered under the Bolts tab, thus overriding the default bolt positions, then non standard parts may be created. The joint will determine if any of the parameters changed could cause parts to become non-standard and will automatically change part attributes accordingly.
