Specifies the properties for the split connection.

Category

Select the type of properties to view for the selected split connection.

Name

Specifies the name of the split connection.

Name Rule

Select the name rule to use to name the split connection.

  • Default Name Rule - Names the split connection using the format: <split status>-<location>-<index> where <split status> is the Split Status that was used to create the split connection, <location> is the global workshare location, and <index> is a unique index number that starts at 0001. For example, Split First-1-0004.

  • Unique Name Rule - Names the split connection using the format: <split status>-<location>-<index> where <split status> is the Split Status that was used to create the split connection, <location> is the global workshare location, and <index> is a unique index number that starts at 0001. For example, Split First-1-0004.

  • User Defined - Select this name rule to name the split connection yourself in the Name box.

Parent

Displays the parent member system to which the split belongs.

Split Parent Status

Specifies the method Smart 3D uses to determine the member system that splits another member system. The list is defined by the SplitStatus codelist.

  • By Rule indicates that the software looks at the Continuity Type and Continuity Priority Number values defined on the Member System Tab (Member System Prismatic Properties Dialog Box) to determine the member system to split. Member systems set to Continuous split the other member system. Member systems set to Intercostal are split by the other member system. The Continuity Priority Number specifies the member system that is split when two member systems intersect, but both have Intercostal for the Continuity Type. Member systems with a lower continuity priority (1, 2, 3, for example) split member systems with a higher continuity priority (7, 8, 9, for example).

  • Split First indicates that the member systems that you identified during the  Split Members step are split by the member systems that you identified during the  Splitting Members step.

  • Split Second indicates that the member systems that you identified during the  Splitting Members step are split by the member systems that you identified during the  Split Members step.

  • Split Both indicates that all member systems that you have identified in both steps are split against each other.

  • Split None indicates that no member systems are split, but the interference between the two objects is suppressed.

Offset

Specify the offset from the intersecting plane or surface to place the split. You can specify a positive or negative number. This option is only available after the split connection is placed when defining a split using a grid plane, elevation plane, or surface as the splitting object.
