Displays options for editing a cableway transition.

Properties

Displays the Cableway Transition Feature Properties dialog box. For more information, see Cableway Transition 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.

End

Allows you to select the beginning, end, or both faces of the transition. If you select both faces, only limited options for editing the properties are available.

Part

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

The Part box is enabled only if you are editing a cable tray (cableway does not have parts).

Plane

Activates options for selecting 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.

Type

Designates the type of transition feature. Options include Straight Parallel, Straight Slanted, and Turn. This box is enabled only for cableway, not for cable tray.

Shape

Sets the shape of the cross section. When you change the type, the dimension boxes change accordingly. This box is enabled only for cableway, not for cable tray.

  • If you select Rectangle or Flat Oval, the Width and Depth boxes are available.

  • If you select Round, the Diameter box is available.

This box displays the current value if an end feature is selected to position the offset because this fixes the cross section shape and the size of the offset cross section.

Width

Sets the width dimension of the cross section. This option is available only if you have selected Rectangle or Flat Oval in the Shape box. Values stored in the reference data determine the list of options. The list displays only the values that are valid for the current depth. If the depth is not defined, or the Depth box is empty, the width size is based on the default width ratio.

Depth

Sets the depth of the cross section. This option is available only if you have selected Rectangle or Flat Oval in the Shape box. The list of options is determined by the values stored in the reference data. The list displays only the values that are valid for the current width. If the width is not defined, or the Width box is empty, the depth size is based on the default width ratio.

Diameter

Sets the diameter of the round cross section.

Orientation

Determines the orientation of the cross section.

Align

Sets the alignment for the transition. Each alignment entry has a point that represents the alignment point on the section view of the cross section.
