Dimensioning: Parts

Sometimes there may be a need to dimension the parts in assembly or single-part drawings so that copes or notches are not taken into account, for example, to estimate the space needed for transportation.

If you set this advanced option to TRUE , the overall dimensions are calculated to long points. If you set it to FALSE , the overall dimensions are calculated to copecut in one component object or input part for receiving another component object or input part

points. FALSE is the default.

This advanced option is role specific. When the type SYSTEM(ROLE) is in use, the default value is used. When the type MODEL(ROLE) or DRAWING(ROLE) is in use, you can change the value, which is then the same for all users in the current modelmodel that is active in Tekla Structures

The current model can be a single-user model, a shared model or a working model.



In the example below, the upper dimension (the red one) shows the result when this advanced option is set to TRUE , and the lower one when it is set to FALSE (the green one).


Using this advanced option will not affect the length of the part in the BOM, reports, or 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.
