Modify the adaptivity of reinforcement, surface treatment, or edge chamfers in parts
Reinforcement, surface treatmentbuilding object that represents finishing of a part
The term surface treatment is used in concrete detailing. For concrete parts surface treatment includes surface mixes, tiles, and flat finishes, such as troweling and sandblasting.
The term surface finish is used in steel detailing. For steel parts surface finishes include fire-proofing and unpainted areas.
and edge chamfers adapt to the parts they are linked to. For example, reinforcement, surface treatment and edge chamfers automatically adapt to changes in part geometry and size. You can modify the adaptivityautomatic linking of model objects to another model object
For example, reinforcement and surface treatment automatically adapt to the changes made to the part they are linked with.

A model object is either created in a model or imported into it.
separately. If you modify the adaptivity of individual model objects, these modifications override the default settings that you may have defined for the entire model.
The options are:
- Off : adaptivity is not defined
- Relative : handles retain their relative distances to the nearest part faces in relation to the part's overall size
- Fixed : handles retain their absolute distances to the nearest part faces
Define default adaptivity settings
You can define default adaptivity settings that affect the entire model.
- On the File menu, click Settings > Options , and go to the General settings.
- Under Default adaptivity , select one of the options.
- Click OK to save the changes.
Modify the adaptivity of an individual model object
You can modify the adaptivity settings for each reinforcement or surface treatment separately. These modifications override the default settings that you may have defined for the entire model.
