Specifies the properties for the member system.

Category

Select the properties to view for the member system.

Standard

Name

Displays the name of the member system. The member system name is based on the Name Rule selection. If you want to type a new name for the member system, in the Name Rule box, select User Defined, and then type a name for the member system in the Name box. If you change the Type Category of the member system after defining a custom name, the name resets to the default name for the new member type.

Name Rule

Specify the naming rule to use to name this member system.

MemberSystemTypeNameRule - Names the member system using this method: <member type>-<location>-<index number> where <member type> is the selected Type property, <location> is the global workshare location ID, and <index number> is a unique index number that starts at 0001. For example: Purlin-1-0003.

Default Name Rule - Names the member system using this method: MemberSystem-<location>-<index number> where <location> is the global workshare location ID and <index number> is a unique index number that starts at 0001. For example: MemberSystem-1-0045.

User Defined - Select this name rule to name the member system yourself using the Name box.

Parent System

Select the system to which the member system that you are placing belongs.

Type category

Specifies the type category of the member, such as a beam or a column. The available member properties change depending on the member type category that you select. You can define a custom member type category by editing the Structural Member Type list in the Catalog task.

Type

Specifies the type of member, such as a beam or column. The available member properties change depending on the member type that you select. This property is a hierarchical child of Type Category. To change the options on the list, edit the Structural Member Type select list in Catalog.

Priority

Specifies the priority assigned to the object system. Smart 3D uses the priority to group objects. To change the options on the list, edit the Structural Member Priority select list in Catalog.

Continuity Type

Specifies the way in which the object system reacts when the system intersects another object system (your automatic splitting preference). The list is defined by the StructContinuity codelist.

  • Continuous indicates that the object system should split the other object system.

  • Intercostal indicates that the object system should be split by the other object system.

You cannot split objects that have a Continuity Type setting of Continuous.

Continuity Priority Number

Specifies the priority when two profile systems that have the same Continuity setting intersect. The profile system with the lowest continuity priority number penetrates the other system. For example, two profile systems intersect and the Continuity setting of each set to Continuous. The profile system with the lowest Continuity Priority number splits the other profile system. You can only modify this property at the root system.

Align

Specifies whether the software copies offsets from the frame connection at the member system end to the unsupported frame connection at the other member system end.

  • True indicates that Smart 3D copies the offsets.

  • False indicates the Smart 3D does not copy the offsets.

Start East / Start X

Displays the X-coordinates of the start of the member relative to the active coordinate system.

Start North / Start Y

Displays the Y-coordinates of the start of the member relative to the active coordinate system.

Start Elevation / Start Z

Displays the Z-coordinates of the start of the member relative to the active coordinate system.

End East / End X

Displays the X-coordinates of the end of the member relative to the active coordinate system.

End North / End Y

Displays the Y-coordinates of the end of the member relative to the active coordinate system.

End Elevation / End Z

Displays the Z-coordinates of the end of the member relative to the active coordinate system.
