The SM_SRDBracket.xls workbook defines parameters for four-support (4S) and five-support (5S) bracket symbols. It also defines parameters for some two-support (2S) and three-support (3S) bracket symbols. The workbook is delivered to the [Product Folder]\ShipCatalogData\BulkLoad\DataFiles\StructDetail folder, and is bulkloaded into the Catalog.
Most 2S and 3S bracket symbols are defined in the SM_BracketEdgeContours.xls workbook, For more information, see Bracket Edge Contours Workbook.
Each worksheet in the workbook defines a bracket smart class, as defined by PartClassType and SelectionRule in the Definition section. Each line in the Head section defines a specific bracket smart object within the smart occurrence class, and the parameters of the object. Each smart occurrence class uses a different combination of the parameters listed below. For more information, see the bracket symbols in Bracket Symbols.
PartClassType - Class type "SmartOccurrence" defined on the PartClassTypes sheet of [Product Folder]\ShipCatalogData\BulkLoad\DataFiles\AllShipCodeLists.xls. Do not modify.
Name - Name of the smart class as it appears in the Catalog task.
SelectionRule - ProgID of the of the smart occurrence rule used by the smart class.
SCType - Code list value for the smart class type defined internally by the software. Do not modify.
SCSubType - Code list value for the smart class subtype defined internally by the software. Do not modify.
oa:[parameter name] - Occurrence attribute that places the named catalog attribute on the Parameters tab of the Properties dialog box (in the software). The parameter also appears in the Head section.
Name - Name of the object as it appears in the Catalog task.
SymbolDefinition - 2D symbol file associated with the smart item. Parameters correspond to symbol parameters in this file.
Definition - ProgID of a definition class module within the smart occurrence rules.
ParameterRule - ProgID of a parameter class module within the smart occurrence rules.
Height[n] - The height of a fixed side of the bracket, measured from a support.
Width[n] - The width of a fixed side of the bracket, measured from a support.
Nose[n] - The height of a free side of the bracket, measured from a support.
Radius1 - A radius on the free edge of the bracket.
Offset[n] - For a bracket with a profile support, the distance from the top of the profile to the free edge of the bracket.
Scallop - The radius of cutout in the bracket at the junction of two supports.
CornerRadius - For a flanged bracket, the radius between the bracket and the flange.
Lap[n] -For a lapped bracket, the distance from a support to the lapped edge of the bracket.
SetBack - For a bracket defined by, but not attached to, a support, the distance from the support to the bracket edge.
BucklingStiffenerOffset - For a bracket with a buckling stiffener, the distance from the free edge of the bracket to the molded line of the stiffener.
ERBoundary1, ERBoundary2 - For a bracket with an edge reinforcement, the distance from the end of each free edge to the edge reinforcement.
