If you enter a geometric value on the specification item level, the value is used as a filter in the following way:
Input 1 of the incoming ident is compared to input1 of the filter table. The same process is repeated for all other input fields.
If one of the compared fields is empty or zero, the comparison results in a match. For example, if you have an ident with nominal size of .5 on input1, a schedule S80 on input2, and all other inputs are zero, the ident is considered a match if one of the following rows exists in the filter geometric:
An X value means that the input value does not affect the filtering.
The value of zero is used as a wildcard in the preceding example, but as a rule, discrete values are used.
If you enter a geometric on the specification item level, the information presented in this section will not apply to this specification item.
The unit system of each row of the filter geometric is compared to the unit system of the ident. The ident is treated as a match if the geometric filter and the ident of each row are equal.
