Category : CNCoperation of a machine tool with a computer controlling the manufacturing process
During the computer numerical control manufacturing process, a machine tool or machining center drills, cuts, or shapes the piece of material.
The terms numerical control and NC refer to the method used prior to computer numerical control. However, the abbreviation NC is often used in the term NC file.
Set to TRUE (default) to create AK blocks in DSTV files also for rectangular plates, combined NC files and part lists.
When you set the advanced option to FALSE , Tekla Structures checks whether an AK block needs to be created for the 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.
, and creates the AK block when needed.
The DSTV standard does not require the creation of AK blocks if the part is completely described by its length, its dimensions and its skewed cuts in the header data. This advanced option allows you to create AK blocks for plates even if the header data already covers all the information of the plate.
This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options
There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).
