Standard

Name

Specifies the name of the pin jig set. If you change the name, then the name rule changes automatically to User Defined.

Name Rule

Select a name rule for the jig set.

  • Select DefaultNameRule to use the following syntax for a plate system: <"PJ">_<Parent Name>-<Workshare Location ID>-<Index number>. If the parent is an assembly system, the following syntax is used: <"AJ">_<Parent Name>-<Workshare Location ID>-<Index number>. For example, AJ_A10-1-103, where AJ represents the type of pin jig being used, A10 is the assembly parent name, 1 is the workshare location ID, and 103 is a reference number.

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

Frame System

Specifies the frame system for the pin jig set. The list contains the frame systems of the parent assembly systems, the frame systems provided by the rule, and the frame systems in the range of the pin jig.

Indicates that the value is inherited from the parent. By default, the pin jig set inherits the frame system from the parent.

Pin Control

Specifies the method used to set the pins into position.

  • 0 Indicates manual.

  • 1 Indicates automatic or computer-controlled.

Jig Tip Type

Specifies the tip type (such as corn, half sphere, or diamond) for the pins. The software uses this value to calculate the real pin height. This height includes the gap between the pin head and the part surface.

A

Pin interval

B

Part surface

C

Seam location

D

Pin height without the jig tip

E

Pin height with the jig tip

Pin Minimum Height

Specifies the minimum height of the pin jig set. The software uses this value during the pin jig computation.

Pin Maximum Height

Specifies the maximum height of the pin jig set. The software uses this value during the pin jig computation.

Seam Distance

Specifies the minimum distance between pins and seam lines. This value is of significance to those pins that are close to an outer contour or inner seam.

Marking Settings

Apply Rule

Specifies whether the display of remarking lines is based on a rule, or is user defined. If this option is selected, all of the rules display as read-only. If this option is not selected, the rules are editable.

This check box is only available during the creation of the pin jig.

Pin Jig Remarking Rule Set

Specifies the rule set that the software uses to get the geometry for remarking lines of each type.

  • Default - Identical to Based on Physical Connection. The options is available so that legacy models continue to work.

  • Based on Logical Connection - Generates the remarking surface by stitching together the surfaces of the leaf plate systems of the supported plates. It uses the existing geometry (as-is) of logical connections between the following objects:

    • Supported plates and connected plates for plate remarking lines.

    • Supported plates and connected profiles for profile remarking lines.

    • Supported plates for seam remarking lines.

  • Based on Physical Connection - Generates the remarking surface by stitching the surfaces of the sides of the supported plate parts that face away from the jig floor. This option uses the physical connections between the following objects:

    • Supported plates and connected plates for plate remarking lines.

    • Supported plates and connected profiles for profile remarking lines.

    • Supported plates for seam remarking lines.

      The geometry for these remarking lines corresponds to the portion of the physical connection geometry that lies on the remarking surface.

  • Based on Part Surface and Logical Connection - Generates the remarking surface by stitching the surfaces of the sides of the supported plate parts that face away from the jig floor. This options uses the logical connections between the following objects:

    • Supported plates and connected plates for plate remarking lines.

    • Supported plates and connected profiles for profile remarking lines.

    • Supported plates for seam remarking lines.

Seam Remarking Lines

Specifies whether seam remarking lines are applied or ignored. This value defaults to Ignore for individual plates. For assemblies, this value defaults to Apply.

Plate Remarking Lines

Specifies whether plate remarking lines are applied or ignored. The following options are available:

Ignore - Indicates that plate remarking lines are not applied.

Apply - Creates a remarking line at the logical connection.

Both Sides - Creates remarking lines representing the molded and anti-molded sides of the connected plate part.

Both Sides with LC - Creates the remarking lines representing the molded and anti-molded sides of the connected plate parts along with the logical connection remarking line.
