Standard

Name

Specifies the name of the manufacturing panel.

Name Rule

Specifies the naming rule to use for the manufacturing panel.

  • Select DefaultNameRule to use the following syntax: Panel-<Assembly Name>-<Sequence Number>. For example, Panel-A1000001-9, where A1000001 is the assembly name, and 9 indicates the ninth panel created in the model.

  • Select User Defined to type a name in the Name box.

Frame System

Specifies the coordinate system associated with the manufacturing plate. Select Inherit from Assembly Parent, or select an existing model coordinate system, such as CS_0. Inherit from Assembly Parent is the default value.

Master Part

Specifies the plate part in the manufacturing panel used to trigger the process and marking rules. The software uses the plate part geometry with the rules defined in the Process List and Marking List boxes of the Manufacturing Panel ribbon.

Surface Type Requested for Unfolding

Specifies the surface that the software uses when computing the unfolding. Available options include the following:

  • Detailing Neutral Surface - This is the default option. Detailing gets the unbounded reference surface without features, and then offsets to the required location based on the rule-given neutral axis offset value. The software intersects the extended surface with the plate solid to trim the surface within the boundaries. This surface considers all the aspects such as bounding elements and bevel parameters to give the exact part length.

  • Detailing Part Surface - This option is implemented in Structural Detailing. The selected part surface is retrieved before any features are applied, and then the surface is offset in the required direction. In this option, there is no trimming involved. Bevel offset parameters are applied, but there is a considerable difference in part lengths because it does not trim the offset surface to lateral faces.

  • True Molded Surface - This option is implemented in Structural Manufacturing. It takes the immediate parent leaf plate system of the selected plate part, and gets its surface geometry. This geometry is then offset to the required surface. The part geometry is not used. The molded surface is offset according to the neutral axis ratio value. Bevel offset parameters are applied, but there is a considerable difference in part lengths because it does not trim the offset surface to lateral faces.

    Shrinkage, margins, and bevels are applied as usual. The part lengths are not as accurate for bevels as is unfolding with the neutral surface, however, because the bevel correction is applied to the true molded surface contours. Manufacturing Service Manager , Marking , and Marking by Definition work as usual.

  • True Part Surface - This option is implemented in Structural Manufacturing. It takes the plate part surface before any features or chamfers, and then offsets that surface in the required direction. This option applies bevel offset parameters, but there is a considerable difference in part lengths because it does not trim the offset surface to lateral faces.

  • Detailing Molded Surface - This option is implemented in Structural Detailing. It takes the molded surface and intersects it with the part solid to give it the same shape as the part, including accounting for bounding part thicknesses. It should give the same result as Detailing Neutral Surface, except that it is computed in the molded surface instead of the neutral surface. This option fails in cases where it cannot successfully intersect the solid part with the molded system surface. Bevel offset parameters are applied, but there is a considerable difference in part lengths because it does not trim the offset surface to lateral faces.

    For a plate bounded only by design or planning seams and other contours, there is no difference; the plate subsystem and the molded part surface are the same. However, if the part is bounded by any other plate systems or profiles, the surface accounts for the detailed shape and thickness of these boundaries. The plate subsystem does not. It is bounded only by the molded surfaces of its boundaries.

  • Imported Surface - This option is implemented in Structural Manufacturing. For this option, Manufacturing Plate accepts a .sat file. This imported surface is used for generating contours and specifying the curves. All the marking lines are projected onto this imported surface, rather than the surface inherited from the part surface. Imported surface geometry is fed to the unfolding algorithm. Bevel corrections, margins, and shrinkages are applied on the resulting manufacturing data.

  • Import Bigger Reference Surface - This option is implemented in Structural Manufacturing. For this option, Manufacturing Plate accepts a .sat file. The outer contours and markings are projected onto a larger reference surface. Imported surface geometry is fed to the unfolding algorithm. Bevel corrections, margins, and shrinkages are applied on the resulting manufacturing data. This option is similar to Imported Surface without using the boundary contours of the imported surface.

    For non-planar surfaces, the software first tries to unfold the neutral surface by default. If there is a failure getting the neutral surface and its contour data, the software uses the molded side of the object and puts the object on the To Do List with a warning indicating that the unfolding used the molded side for processing. This process is followed for both planar and curved geometry.

Surface Type Used for Unfolding

Specifies the surface type that was used to generate the unfolding data. This property is read-only.

Length

Displays the length of the manufacturing panel. This property is read-only.

Width

Displays the width of the manufacturing panel. This property is read-only.

Curvature Type

Specifies the curvature type of the manufacturing object. The ProfileCurvature codelist defines this list.

Plate Type

Displays the plate type associated with the plate parts in the manufacturing panel. Plate type is inherited from the parent plate system.

Is Panel

Specifies whether the part is a manufacturing panel. Because this part is a manufacturing panel, the default value is True. This option allows you to distinguish between manufactured plate and manufactured panels for querying purposes.

Detailed Part Status

Specifies the state of the parent part or parts for the manufacturing object. This property only displays when you are modifying a part.

Up to Date - The part state is current with all of its relationships, such as connected parts.

Out of Date - The part state is not current with all of its relationships, such as connected parts. A relationship change can cause this state. You can update the detailed part by using Tools > Recompute Objects. For more information, see Recompute Objects in the Common User's Guide.

In Error - The part encountered an error. A relationship change such as connected parts can cause the error. You can clear the error by using View > To Do List. For more information, see To Do List in the Common User's Guide.

Warning - The part encountered a warning. A relationship change such as connected parts can cause the warning. You can clear the error by using View > To Do List. For more information, see To Do List in the Common User's Guide.

Light Part - The part has not been detailed.

Manufacturing Object Status

Specifies the status of the manufacturing object. This property only displays when you are modifying a manufacturing object.

  • Up to Date - The part state is current with all of its relationships, such as connected parts.

  • Out of Date - The part state is not current with all of its relationships, such as detailed parts. A relationship change can cause this state. You can update the manufacturing part by using Manufacturing Service Manager . For more information, see Manufacturing Service Manager.

  • In To Do List - The part encountered an error or warning. A relationship change such as connected parts can cause this state. You can clear the error by using View > To Do List. For more information, see To Do List in the Common User's Guide.

  • Up to Date (Pre-nesting) - The state of a pre-nested part is current with all of its relationships, such as connected parts.

  • Out of Date (Pre-nesting) - The state of a pre-nested part is not current with all of its relationships, such as connected parts. A relationship change can cause this state.

  • In To Do List (Pre-nesting) - The pre-nested part encountered an error. A relationship change can cause this state.

For more information on the pre-nesting service, see Pre-nesting.

Survivability Status

Specifies the status associated with the manufacturability object. The list is defined by the MfgState codelist.

  • Generated State - All the steps and rules were successfully applied, and the manufacturing part was generated based on the steps and rules.

  • Partial State - Not all steps or rules were applied successfully. The information is not complete and you must add information to pass the manufacturability check. After the check passes, the step moves to Modified State.

  • Modified State - You have provided additional information that could lead to acceptance of the manufacturability check. The part remains in a warning state on the To Do List. You can refresh the part so that it is regenerated. If the check is successful, it gets a new status.
