Smart 3D is able to output manufacturing data generically so that each shipyard may decide which nesting package to use. Manufacturing data is sent to an XML file.
The XML output must be compatible with any nesting package. Therefore, Smart 3D bevel conventions are mapped to output that is generic. This section describes the mapping.
All parameters in the physical connection rules should be calculated using the Smart 3D bevel definitions. These values are converted in Structural Manufacturing to match the mapped bevel definition.
