Fitting and welds are created.

Selection order

  1. Select the main part(1) part that exists in a building object and that determines the position number for the assembly or cast unit and the direction of assembly or cast unit drawings

    (1) Main part can be an assembly main part or a cast unit main part.

    (2) input part that the user selects first when creating a component

    (2) Connections and details always have a component main part.

    (first round tube).

  2. Select the secondary part(1) part that exists in a building object and that is connected to the main part

    (1) Secondary part can be an assembly secondary part or a cast unit secondary part.

    (2) input part that the user selects after selecting the component main part when creating a component

    (2) A component can have none, one or more component secondary parts.

    (second round tube).

    The connection is created automatically when the secondary part is selected.

Option

Description

Default

The secondary round tube is cut with the main round tube.

AutoDefaults can change this option.

The secondary round tube is cut with the main round tube.

The secondary round tube is fitted to the center line of the main round tube and then cut.

Position of pop mark

Select the position of the pop markinformation written in an NC file that sets the NC machine to drill a small hole in the surface of the material, which is used to weld or bolt assembly secondary parts to the right location on an assembly main part

.

Parameters tab

Use the Parameters tab to control whether welds are created and to define the rotation angle and cut tolerance.

Option Description
Weldings Define whether welds are created between the round tubes.
Rotation angle of cut part Define the rotation angle of the cut in the main round tube.

In some cases it is necessary to rotate the cut part in the main round tube to make sure the cut is shown correctly. The default is that the cut part is not rotated.
