The Occurrence tab displays the assembly connection properties that you can edit or that are automatically determined by the software at placement. The property name appears on the left side of the grid and the corresponding property value appears on the right side of the grid. If you selected more than one assembly connection, and then selected the properties command, only the common properties between the selected assembly connections display.
When viewing properties for a single assembly connection, the following properties display. More properties may display depending on what you defined in the reference data. Refer to the Structure Reference Data Guide for more information on properties. You can access this document using the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
Displays the name of the assembly connection. The assembly connection name is based on the Name Rule selection. If you want to type a new name for the assembly connection, in the Name Rule box, select User Defined, and then type a name for the assembly connection in the Name box.
Specify the naming rule that you want to use to name this assembly connection.
Default Name Rule - Names the assembly connection using this format: <assembly connection>-<location>-<unique index> where <assembly connection> is the name of the assembly connection defined in the catalog, <location> is the global workshare location, and <unique index> is an index number that starts at 0001. For example, WPTrimByPointAtEnd3-1-0045.
Unique Name Rule - Names the assembly connection using this format: <parent system name>-<assembly connection>-<location>-<unique index> where <parent system name> is the parent System selected for the assembly connection, <assembly connection> is the name of the assembly connection defined in the catalog, <location> is the global workshare location, and <unique index> is an index number that starts at 0001. For example, Structure System-WPTrimByPointAtEnd3-1-0045.
User Defined - Select to specify the assembly connection name yourself in the Name box.
Displays the name of the Wall Part to which the assembly connection belongs.
Select whether the boundary is infinite or finite.
Select the boundary type: above, below, start, end, or contact.
Select the connection type: aligned, along, or corner.
Enter the offset distance between the wall and the boundary.
When a member is used as a boundary for the wall, you can use this option to specify which part of the member the wall should use as the boundary: near, far, or center.
Select near when you want the wall to stop at the inner most plane of the bounding member.
Select center when you want the wall to stop at the member-line axis of the bounding member.
Select far when you want the slab to stop at the out-most plane of the bounding member.
