Displays options for editing a cableway end feature.

Properties

Displays the Cableway End Feature Properties dialog box. For more information, see Cableway End Feature Properties Dialog Box.

Move From

Click to specify the starting location of the move vector. If you do not define a starting point, the software assumes that the current location of the object is the starting point.

Move To

Click to specify the ending location of the move vector.

When you move, or modify a route object in HVAC, Electrical, or Piping, Smart 3D treats any unfinished ends as free end features. An unfinished end is an end with mating parts or a logical data connection with one logical port. You can reconnect using these free end features. This behavior allows you to reuse existing mating parts and connections and reduces wait times.

Plane

Sets a working plane for the route path. Six options are available:

  • Plan Plane

Defines the work surface as the XY plane at the depth of the active end. You also can press CTRL+1 to select this option.

  • Elevation Plane: East-West ( Z Plane: X-Axis)

Defines the work surface as the XZ plane. You also can press CTRL+2 to select this option.

  • Elevation Plane: North-South ( Z Plane: Y-Axis)

Defines the work surface as the YZ plane. You also can press CTRL+3 to select this option.

  • Plane by Turn/Branch

Defines the work surface as the plane defined by an existing turn or branch. You select the turn or branch to set the plane. You also can press CTRL+4 to select this option.

  • Plane by Three Points

Defines the work surface using three points that you define. You also can press CTRL+5 to select this option.

  • No Plane

Clears any work surfaces. The software does not project points that you place to any plane. You also can press CTRL+6 to select this option.

Run

Displays the name of the cableway associated with the end feature.

Part

Allows you to specify the part associated with the end feature.

Angle Lock

Locks or unlocks the Angle box.

Leg Angle

Displays the angle of any turn or branch component that is located at the other end of the leg with which the selected end feature is associated. This box is disabled if no turn or branch exists at the other end of the leg. Changing the angle value adjusts the position of the selected end feature to achieve the specified angle and then locks that angle value. Unlock to dynamically update the angle as you move the selected end component.

Length Lock

Locks or unlocks the Length box.

Length

Displays the length of the cableway connected to the end being edited. Entering a value in this box adjusts the position of the selected end feature to achieve the specified length and then locks that length value. Unlock to dynamically update the length value as you move the selected end component.

Offset

Controls the SmartSketch® offset constraint. Type a distance that you want to offset the cableway. Select <Disabled> if you do not want to use the offset. Select Set Offset Reference to define a reference point. For more information on setting the reference point, see Set Offset Reference Dialog Box (Cableway).
