Specifies the general properties of the plate part.

Name

Displays the name of the selected object. If the name is too long to entirely display in the box, hover the cursor over the box to display the complete name as a tool tip. If the name is not defined by a rule, User Defined displays. If this name is generated by a naming rule, Naming Rule displays. If you type a name in this box, Smart 3D automatically changes the naming rule to User Defined.

Rule

Select the naming rule to use to name the object.

PlatePartRule - Creates a name based on the parent root plate system name, the location within the parent root plate system, and the parent assembly name.

User Defined - Name the plate part yourself by using the appropriate box.

Type

Displays the type of the plate part. It is inherited from the parent system.

Naming Category

Specifies the naming category. The naming rule uses the category in naming the profile part that is a child to the profile system.

Parent System

Displays the parent system for the object.

Surface Geometry Type

Displays the Molded Forms command used to create the root parent plate system. It is inherited from the parent system.

Specification

Specifies the specification for the object. This property is inherited from the parent system.

Description

Specifies a description for the object.

Tightness

Specifies the water tightness of the object. This value is inherited from the parent system.

Board Management

Symmetry

Specifies the symmetry value for the part. The symmetry value is determined by Tools > Board Management Service in Structural Detailing.

Manually Override

When selected, allows you to manually change the Symmetry value.

Symmetrical Part

Displays the name of the symmetrical part, if available. The symmetrical part is determined by Tools > Board Management Service in Structural Detailing.

Structural Priority

Specifies the priority assigned to the object. Structural priority groups and filters plates, such as is needed in Drawings and Reports. The list is defined by the StructuralMemberPriority codelist.

  • Primary is the default value for Molded Forms plate systems.

  • Secondary is the default value for Molded Forms bracket systems.

  • Tertiary is the default value for Structural Detailing parts, such as collars, standalone plate parts, lapped plate parts, bracket parts, and plate edge reinforcements. These parts do not have parent systems.
