The SM_StructXsections.xls workbook defines standard catalog profile cross-sections used by the Molded Forms task. The workbook is delivered to the [Product Folder]\ShipCatalogData\BulkLoad\DataFiles\ folder and is bulkloaded into the catalog.

The workbook is delivered with a worksheet for each type of cross-section. Each worksheet defines a profile cross-section class, the corresponding 2D symbol file, and properties in the catalog.

Definition Section

Defines attributes that apply to the entire cross-section type.

PartClassType

Class type "CrossSectionClass" as defined on the PartClassTypes sheet of the [Product Folder]\ShipCatalogData\Bulkload\DataFiles\AllShipCodeLists.xls file. Do not modify.

SymbolDefinition

2D symbol file associated with the cross-section type. 2D symbol files are delivered to the [Reference Data Folder]\SharedContent folder.

CrossSectionType

Cross-section type defined internally by the software. CrossSectionType is not displayed in the Catalog task. The name of the worksheet appears in the Catalog task browser in the software.

ReferenceStandard

Standards organization or shape library for the cross-section type, as defined on the ReferenceStandard worksheet.

SymbolIcon

Specifies a graphic file for the part class. You can view this graphic in the Catalog task or on the Properties dialog box in the Molded Forms task in the software.

ISBuiltUp

The value 1 defines the cross-section type as a built-up section. This attribute is optional.

Head Section

Defines properties for individual profile cross-section sizes.

SectionName

Name of the profile cross-section size as it appears in the Catalog task.

GroupID

This property is not used. Do not modify.

[Physical attributes]

Physical attributes defined in the catalog, such as web length, flange thickness, and fillet radius. Individual physical attributes are not listed here. Physical attributes correspond to symbol parameters in the 2D symbol file defined by SymbolDefinition.

[Mechanical properties]

Mechanical properties used in structural analysis and defined in the catalog, such as moment of inertia, section modulus, and radius of gyration. Individual properties are not listed here.

OriginKeyPoint

Unique number to identify the profile origin. The OriginKeyPoint corresponds with the key point numbering conventions in the cross-section symbol file. For more information, see Key Point Numbering Conventions and Creating Profile Cross Sections common Tasks in the 2D Symbols User's Guide.

XDirectionKeyPoint

Unique number to identify the direction of the profile X axis. The XDirectionKeyPoint corresponds with the key point numbering conventions in the cross-section symbol file. For more information, see Key point numbering conventions and Creating Profile Cross Sections common Tasks in the 2D Symbols User's Guide.

YDirectionKeyPoint

Unique number to identify the direction of the profile Y axis. The YDirectionKeyPoint corresponds with the key point numbering conventions in the cross-section symbol file. For more information, see Key point numbering conventions and Creating Profile Cross Sections common Tasks in the 2D Symbols User's Guide.
