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 this advanced option to TRUE if you do not want to unfold polybeampart of a certain shape that is created as a continuous chain of beams passing through points that the user picks

The segments of the polybeam are straight, but segment intersections can be curved. For example, a beam that follows a zigzag line is a polybeam.

plates when you create DSTV files. This means that the polybeam plates will be handled as “cut into shape” instead of “bent into shape” regardless of the modeling method. For this advanced option to work, the polybeam 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.

must lie in XY plane of the material.

If set this advanced option to FALSE , Tekla Structures writes the unfolded geometry of the polybeam plates to the DSTV files. The default value is FALSE.

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).
