10.1 (2014 R1)

Specifies the general settings for the profile edge reinforcement. Names generated by a rule include a Global Workshare name rule ID if the name rule ID was defined when the model database was created. For more information, see Using Global Workshare in the Global Workshare Guide.


Specifies 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.


Specifies how the name is created.

StdProfileSystemNamingRule - Uses the following syntax: <Parent Name>-<Index Number><Profile Type>-<Index Number>. For example, L3-1LBH-1-1L-1, where L3-1LBH-1 is the parent name, 1L is an index number appended by the profile type, and 1 is an index number. The profile type abbreviations are L for longitudinal, V for vertical, T for Transversal, R for ring, and A for axial.

StdHierarchyChildNamingRule - Uses the following syntax: <Parent Name><System Object Type>. For example, L3-1LBH-1-IJStiffenerSystem2, where L3-1LBH-1 is the parent name, and IJStiffenerSystem2 is the object type.

User Defined - Indicates that you want to type a name in the Name box.


Displays the object type, which in this case is Edge Reinforcement.

Naming Category

Select a naming category. The category is used by the naming rule to name the profile part that is a child to the profile system.

Parent System

Displays the name of the parent system of the edge reinforcement profile.


Type a description for the edge reinforcement profile.


Select a specification for the edge reinforcement profile.

Specification can only be changed on a root edge reinforcement system. This option is unavailable for the leaf system.


Specifies whether a leaf system is active and applicable for modeling, drawing, and reporting operations. To exclude the leaf system from these operations, select No. In the Workspace Explorer, the lock icon is shown over the icon of the deactivated leaf system, and the detailed or light part associated with the leaf system is also deleted. In addition, because connections to deactivated leaf system are not valid, you must resolve such invalid connections in the To Do List. To change the leaf profile system back to the active state, select Yes; however, to have the detailed part, you must detail the leaf system explicitly. For information on leaf systems, see Marine Structure Hierarchy in the Workspace Explorer in the Molded Forms User's Guide or in the Common User's Guide.

Identifying Parent Values for Leaf Properties

For a property on a leaf system, the value assigned to the root system contains an asterisk (*), such as:

This makes it easy to see whether the currently assigned value for a leaf property is different from the parent property. You can also change a modifiable leaf property back to the root value without first checking the root value in the root system Properties dialog box.

The asterisk (*) only displays in the Properties dialog box for a leaf system.
