Set this advanced option to TRUE to create AISC weld marks, to use leg length as default fillet weld size dimensioning, and to create arrow side weld using below line weld properties.
Set this advanced option to FALSE to create ISO weld marks, to use throat thickness as default fillet weld size dimensioning, and to create arrow side weld using above line weld properties. FALSE is the default value.
This advanced option also affects the spacing of intermittent welds:
TRUE uses the Pitch value entered in the weld properties as the center-to-center spacing of welds.
FALSE uses the Pitch value entered in the weld properties as the spacing between the welds.
