  1. Click Stiffener Profile System by Projection on the vertical toolbar.

  2. Select the plate system to stiffen.

  3. Select the Section Type and Section Size.

  4. Define the landing curve using one of the following methods:

    Define landing curve by 2D .

    Define landing curve by 3D .

  5. Click Profile Orientation Definition .

  6. Define the orientation of the stiffener profile with regard to the plate system.

  7. Click Boundary Definition .

  8. Define the boundaries for the stiffener profile.

  9. Click Accept .

  10. If the boundary definition results in two solutions, pick the needed solution using the following procedure:

    Solve ambiguous solution created by selected boundaries

  11. Click Finish.

  • If you do not select boundaries, the software uses the entire length of the base curve to apply to the resulting profile curves.

  • Stiffener profiles are always associated with the plate system to which they belong.

  • If the plate system is symmetrical about the sketch plane (For example, a revolved plate system or a hull), an unbounded sketched seam curve displays on both sides of the plate system. If you want the profile on only one side, then you must add a boundary to the profile so that the command switches to Solve Ambiguity . The plate system on which the profile is placed can also be selected as its own boundary to meet this requirement.
