Scantling and steel order drawing view styles use the ISSteelOrderRuleSet.Default rule set, which provides a list of source actions. Each source draws specific types of items and applies drawing rules to the items based on conditions allowed in the source. Using the Tools > Define View Style command in the Drawings and Reports task, you specify the source/condition combination, queries, view area properties, labels, and add-on rulesets you want to use for your drawing view style.

ISSteelOrderRuleSet.Default

This rule set is used for scantling production (steel order) and classification drawings using both detailed parts and light (non-detailed) parts.

Source Items (Actions tab)

The rule set and the source/condition definitions are defined on the Action tab of the Edit Ruleset View Style dialog box. For more information, see Actions Tab (Edit Ruleset View Style Dialog Box).

The following options are available in the Source field:

View Queries (Query tab)

View query properties are defined on the Query tab of the Edit Ruleset View Style dialog box. For more information, see Query Tab (Edit Ruleset View Style Dialog Box).

The following options are available in the Query field:

1. Any system, part, or reference plane

Defines the query by the selected outfitting or structural systems or parts, or a selected reference plane. When systems are selected, the parts belonging to the systems are used. Select objects that support the type of drawing view you want to create. A value for this query is required. The following can be set:

  • Plate parts or systems.

  • Profile parts or systems.

  • Member parts or systems.

  • Outfitting parts or systems, including pipe lines, pipe runs, pipe parts, hangers and supports, and equipment.

  • Reference planes from any coordinate system.

Selections can be made manually using Associate Objects to Views in SmartSketch Drawing Editor. Selections can also be specified automatically as output of an applicable collation rule. For more information, see Collation Rules in Drawings by Rule in the Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide or Collation Rules in the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide.

2. Boundary (Block, volume, or assembly)

Defines the boundaries of a query by a selected planning block, volume, assembly, or assembly block. A value for this query is optional.

3. Gathering rule

Defines the type of parts gathered in the drawing view. The rule provides a definition of the objects to be gathered and drawn in a view. The gathering rule starts with the inputs selected in Any system, part, or reference plane and adds more objects to the view based on their relationships to each other. This option opens the Select Gathering Rule dialog box. Select a rule that supports the type of drawing view you want to create, such as Steel Order or Assembly. A value for this query is required. The default value is Steel Order.

4. Gathering method

Defines how model objects are included in the drawing view. The volume selected with Block, volume, or Assembly or created with Volume creation rule is used as input for the gathering method.

  • Gather related objects in volume - Parts are gathered based on connections to the selected parts resulting from Any system, part, or reference plane. If a volume is defined for Volume creation rule, only connected objects in the volume are gathered.

  • Gather all objects in volume - All parts in the volume are gathered even if they are not connected to the selected parts resulting from Any system, part, or reference plane. If a volume is not defined for Volume creation rule, this option is not valid. This is the default value.

Relationships (such as parent/child or bounded/bounding) for all gathered objects are also gathered and used by the selected Gathering rule.

5. Volume creation rule

Defines the volume for the view by one of the following methods:

  • Create volume along surface of input parts with boundary extents - The volume follows the surfaces of the selected parts resulting from Any system, part, or reference plane. The volume depth (normal to the view) is extended by the values of Volume growth into drawing and Volume growth out of drawing. The volume area (in the plane of the view) is extended to (or clipped by) the boundaries defined by Boundary (Block, volume, or assembly). The gathering range is extended by the values defined by Extend Into and Extend Out Of.

Example: Corrugated bulkhead

1 - Cross-section of volume

2 - Volume growth

3 - Extended gathering range

4 - Volume extended to boundaries

5 - View direction

6 - Additional part gathered into view

7 - Additional part not gathered into view

  • Create volume along surface of input parts without boundary extents - The volume follows the surfaces of the selected parts resulting from Any system, part, or reference plane. The volume depth (normal to the view) is extended by the values of Volume growth into drawing and Volume growth out of drawing. The volume area (in the plane of the view) is not extended to (nor clipped by) the boundaries defined by Boundary (Block, volume, or assembly). The gathering range is extended by the values defined by Extend Into and Extend Out Of.

Example: Corrugated bulkhead

1 - Cross-section of volume

2 - Volume growth

3 - Extended gathering range

4 - View direction

5 - Additional part gathered into view

6 - Additional part not gathered into view

  • Create volume from range box around input parts with boundary extents - The volume is a rectangular range box around the selected parts resulting from Any system, part, or reference plane. The volume depth (normal to the view) is extended by the values of Volume growth into drawing and Volume growth out of drawing. The volume is extended to (or clipped by) the boundaries defined by Boundary (Block, volume, or assembly). See the corrugated bulkhead example below.

Example: Corrugated bulkhead

1 - Cross-section of volume

2 - Volume growth

3 - Additional part gathered into view

4 - View direction

5 - Volume extended to boundaries

  • Create volume from range box around input parts without boundary extents - The volume is a rectangular range box around the selected parts resulting from Any system, part, or reference plane. The volume depth (normal to the view) is extended by the values of Volume growth into drawing and Volume growth out of drawing. The volume is not extended to (nor clipped by) the boundaries defined by Boundary (Block, volume, or assembly). See the corrugated bulkhead example below.

Example: Corrugated bulkhead

Example: Non-orthogonal member

1 - Cross-section of volume

2 - Volume growth

3 - Additional part gathered into view

4 - View direction

  • Create oriented volume around input parts without boundary extents - The volume is a rectangular box around the parts. The box is oriented around parts to minimize the volume. The parts are typically not orthogonal, but the view direction is typically normal to the box. The volume depth (normal to the view) is extended by the values of Volume growth into drawing and Volume growth out of drawing.

  • If the view direction is not normal to the box, then the volume is extended to (or clipped by) the boundaries defined by Boundary (Block, volume, or assembly) instead of Volume growth into drawing and Volume growth out of drawing.

  • If the view direction is normal to the box, then the volume is extended to (or clipped by) Volume growth into drawing and Volume growth out of drawing. These values can be positive or negative.

Example: Non-orthogonal member

1 - Cross-section of volume

2 - Volume growth

3 - Additional part gathered into view

4 - View direction

  • Do not create volume - A volume is not used to restrict gathering using gathering rule. For example, a shell longitudinal profile view does not use a volume. It instead uses levels to gather secondary parts.

The volume selected with Boundary (Block, volume, or assembly) or created with Volume creation rule is also used for view clipping in the graphic rule. For more information, see Graphic Rules in Drawings by Rule in the Drawings and Reports Reference Data Guide.

View Area Properties (Area tab)

View area and frame properties are defined on the Area tab of the Edit Ruleset View Style dialog box. For more information and property definitions, see Area Tab (Edit Ruleset View Style Dialog Box).

The following options are available in the Property field:

  • Area Computation

  • Area Shape

  • Boundary Overlap

  • Overlap Fill Style

  • Frame Shape

  • Frame Border Style
