Specifies the groups and symmetry planes for a Copy Symmetry family.

For each symmetry family, a coordinate system is selected, typically the main global coordinate system. The Y=0 grid plane, the longitudinal centerline of the coordinate system, is automatically used by the software as the symmetry plane. The software automatically creates two symmetrical groups, one on each side (port and starboard) of the symmetry plane, containing all the grid planes for each side. One group is selected as the source group to be cloned. For example, the software uses all port side grid planes as the source group. The starboard side grid planes are the corresponding elements for the starboard group. To determine all the structural objects that belong to the source group, the software finds all objects whose definition is based on the grid planes, then finds all their children, then finds all the objects that are bounded by either the grid planes or the systems defined by the grid planes and all their children.

Main tab

Name

Type a name for the copy symmetry family. This name must be unique among all family names.

Symmetry Planes

Select the coordinate systems to use for the symmetry plane. By default, the software uses the Y=0 plane of the selected coordinate system as the symmetry plane. If you select more than one coordinate system, all selected coordinate systems must have coincident Y=0 planes.

Source Group

Select which group is the source for the symmetrical copy.

Port Group Name

Type a name for the port symmetrical group. This name appears when you synchronize the groups. The default name is Port.

Starboard Group Name

Type a name for the starboard symmetrical group. This name appears when you synchronize the groups. The default name is Starboard.

Range Growth Value

Type a value for the range required for selecting the Copy candidates.

Copy MfgData

Copies manufacturing objects.

Set Symmetry Property for Parts

Applies the symmetry property suffix defined in the naming rules to the copied parts.

Target Parent System

Copies the target objects in the specified parent system. Click the browse button to select a different parent system.

Configuration tab

Displays the creation, modification, and status information about an object.

Ship

Displays the name of the model. You cannot change this value.

Permission Group

Specifies the permission group to which object belongs. You can select another permission group, if needed. Permission groups are created in the Project Management task.

Approval State

Displays the approval state the objects will be in when created. You cannot change this value.

Status

Specifies the current status of the selected object or filter. Depending on your access levels, you may not be able to change the status of the object.

Date Created

Displays the date and time that the object was created.

Created by

Displays the user name of the person who modified the object.

Date Last Modified

Displays the date and time when the object was modified.

Last Modified by

Displays the user name of the person who modified the object.
