The Stiffener Profile System by Offset command creates a stiffener profile system on the selected plate system by defining the landing curve as being offset from an existing curve (a seam, plate boundary, plate edge, the landing curve of another profile system, or grid plane).
You can control the boundaries of the stiffener profile by selecting a plate system, profile system, seam or grid plane that intersects the landing curve. If you do not define boundaries, the software uses the landing curve ends as the stiffener profile boundaries.
After defining the landing curve and the boundaries, you can set the profile orientation. The plate system side and the flange direction for unsymmetrical profile sections are set by the molded convention of the plate system. However, you may override the default settings by using the Profile Properties dialog box.
When a stiffener profile system is created, a stiffener part is also created. Profile parts are detailed in the Structural Detailing task and then used to create manufacturing parts in the Structural Manufacturing task. Properties of the part can be modified. For more information, see Stiffener Part Properties Dialog Box.
