Standard

Name

Specifies the name of the manufacturing member.

Name Rule

Select the naming rule to use to name the manufacturing member. Select User Defined to type a name in the Name box.

Frame System

Specifies the frame system associated with the manufacturing member. This value indicates whether the coordinate system is inherited from the parent object or is set to a coordinate system that has frames in range of the object.

Curvature Type

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

Is Twisted

Indicates whether the object is twisted or not twisted. The list is defined by the StrMfgIsTwisted codelist.

Detailed Part Status

Displays 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Out of Date - The part state is not current with all of its relationships, such as connected parts.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

Displays 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  • Out of Date - The part state is not current with all of its relationships, such as detailed parts.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.

Dimensions

Length Structural Detail Web

Specifies an approximate length of the detailed web for the detailed manufacturing object.

Length Structural Detail Top Flange

Specifies an approximate length of the top flange for the detailed manufacturing object.

Length Structural Detail Bottom Flange

Specifies an approximate length of the bottom flange for the detailed manufacturing object.

Length Structural Detail Total

Specifies the total length of the detailed manufacturing object.

While there are four different lengths that display on the property page, only Length Structural Detail Total displays the detailing length.

Length Unfolded Web

Specifies the web length of the unfolded manufacturing object.

Length Unfolded Top Flange

Specifies the top flange length of the unfolded manufacturing object.

Length Unfolded Bottom Flange

Specifies the bottom flange length of the unfolded manufacturing object.

Length Unfolded Total

Specifies the total length of the unfolded manufacturing object.

The unfolded length values are the lengths of the extended objects after they are unfolded but before any features are applied. This length has almost no meaning to the designer because the extended length could be arbitrarily long. If the unfolded length is shorter than Length Structural Detail Total, the unfolding process may have been unsuccessful. Because the object is extended as a whole, the summation of the unfolded lengths for the individual faces equal the total unfolded length. Because most stiffeners do not have a bottom flange, the bottom flange unfolded length is typically zero. The same holds for stiffeners that do not have a top flange.

Length Before Features Web

Specifies the web length before features for the manufacturing object.

Length Before Features Top Flange

Specifies the top flange length before features for the manufacturing object.

Length Before Features Bottom Flange

Specifies the bottom flange length before features for the manufacturing object.

Length Before Features Total

Specifies the total length before features for the manufacturing object.

  • The Before Features values display the length that must be cut off the object stock before it can be suitably cut at the ends. This is the length of the object before the end cuts remove material from the profile solid. The software uses the Before Features values to calculate the Material Take-Off (MTO) stock table.

  • The lengths for each of the faces, as well as the total length, are all determined by the end-cuts themselves which internally define length points. This is illustrated with the red dot in the previous figure.

  • The two length points that are farthest apart from each face define the Before Features length for that face. Likewise, the two length points of the whole object that are farthest from each other go to define the Before Features length of the whole object.

Length After Features Web

Specifies the web length after features for the manufacturing object.

Length After Features Top Flange

Specifies the top flange length after features for the manufacturing object.

Length After Features Bottom Flange

Specifies the bottom flange length after features for the manufacturing object.

Length After Features Total

Specifies the total length after features for the manufacturing object.

  • The After Features lengths display the distance between the points of the object that represent the extremity of material. This is computed after the end-cuts remove the material from the stiffener solid.

  • The After Features values determine the final shape of the profile part. In addition, manufacturing and physical connection details (such as shrinkage, margins, feature cuts, marking, bevel angles, part mounts, and so forth) affect the final shape.
