Name

Specifies the name of the shrinkage.

Name Rule

Select the naming rule to use to name the shrinkage.

  • Select DefaultNameRule to let the software automatically name new objects. If the Shrinkage Type is set to Scaling by Edge, the following syntax is used: <"Scaling shrinkage ">-<Workshare Location ID>. For example, Scaling shrinkage -1. If the Shrinkage Type is set to Global Axis, the following syntax is used: <"Global shrinkage ">-<Workshare Location ID>. For example, "Global shrinkage -1.

  • Select User Defined to type a name in the Name box.

Detailed Part Status

Displays the status of the parent object for the shrinkage. This property only displays when you are modifying a shrinkage.

Manufacturing Object Status

Displays the status of the shrinkage. This property only displays when you are modifying a shrinkage.

Shrinkage Type

Specifies the direction type of shrinkage to apply.

  • By Axis - Select a grid system axis to define the shrinkage direction.

  • By Edge -Select one of two edges so that it can determine the shrinkage directions.

  • By Vector -The software provides one more list called selection method and depends upon the selection method there you can select the primary and secondary directions.

Primary Direction

Displays the coordinate system name and primary direction of the shrinkage when the Shrinkage Type is By Axis. When Shrinkage Type is By Vector depends upon the selection method it will show axis (Coordinate System) or vector (Global and vector). This box is empty when Shrinkage Type is By Edge or selection method is Edge.

Secondary Direction

Displays the coordinate system name and secondary direction of the shrinkage when the Shrinkage Type is By Axis. When Shrinkage Type is By Vector depends upon the selection method it will show axis (Coordinate System) or vector (Global and vector). This box is empty when Shrinkage Type is By Edge or selection method is Edge.

Selection Method

Specifies the active shrinkage mode.

  • Coordinate System - Select primary and secondary direction vectors as axis.

  • Edge - Select primary and secondary direction vectors as plate edges.

  • Global - Primary and secondary direction as standard vectors [X (1, 0, 0), Y (0, 1, 0), Z (0, 0, 1)].

  • Vector - User can create shrinkage in any direction with the help of Shrinkage Direction Vectors control.

  • Validate calculates the primary/secondary vector with respect to the plate normal and primary/secondary vector.

Primary Factor

Specifies a factor for the amount of extra material to apply in the primary direction.

Secondary Factor

Specifies a factor for the amount of extra material to apply in the secondary direction.

Tertiary Factor

Specifies a factor for the amount of extra material to apply in the tertiary direction. Use values from 0mm to 1m for plates and profiles.
