The Ladders node defines the ladders that you want to add to your catalog and hence to your model. The ladders that are delivered are samples. Do not directly edit the sample ladders to create your custom ladders. We recommend that you copy the sample, and then edit the copy.

When creating your ladders, there are custom attributes and required attributes. You can add your custom attributes using the Custom Interfaces Sheet sheet (described in the Reference Data Guide).

The required attributes used by IJSPSCommonStairLadderProperties interface must be defined for each ladder part class that you define. The required attributes are:

Part Number

Type a part number for the ladder. The part number must be unique across the entire catalog.

Part Description

Type a description for the ladder.

Mirror Behavior Option

Specify the mirror behavior of the ladder part.

Span

Enter the distance from the top support to the bottom support. This is the default distance. The actual distance is calculated by the ISPSStairSymbolServices component when placing the ladder.

Height

Enter the overall projected vertical height, including custom extensions or gaps on the top or bottom. This is the default distance. The actual distance is calculated by the ISPSStairSymbolServices component when placing the ladder.

Length

Enter the overall physical length for reporting purposes. This is the default distance. The actual distance is calculated by the ISPSStairSymbolServices component when placing the ladder.

Width

Enter the horizontal width of the ladder. This is the default distance that is displayed on the ribbon bar during placement.

Angle

Enter the angle of inclination from the bottom support. This is the default angle that is displayed on the ribbon bar during placement.

Step Pitch

Enter the maximum distance between the rungs of the ladder. This is the default distance that is displayed on the ribbon bar during placement.

Side

Enter 1 or 0. This attribute is a toggle for the placement side relative to the top support. The Side button on the ribbon bar toggles the value so the default setting is inconsequential.
