The Cope Feature node (the CopeFeature sheet in the StructAssemblyConnections.xls workbook) defines the copes that you can place using Place Assembly Connection .

Name

Specifies the name of the cope. This is the name that appears in the interface when you are placing the cope.

Web Clearance

Specifies the distance between the webs of the two members. Dimension A in the figure.

Flange Clearance 1

Specifies the flange side clearance. This is dimension B in the figure.

Flange Clearance 2

Specifies the flange inside clearance. This is dimension C in the figure.

Length

Specifies the length of the cope. This is dimension D in the figure.

Depth

Specifies the depth of the cope. This is dimension E in the figure.

Radius

Specifies the radius of the cope at the intersection of the flange clearance 1 and flange clearance 2.

Increment

Specifies the value by which to increment the cope dimension. For example, if you set the Increment to 2" (inches), the cope dimension is always divisible by 2 (2", 4", 6", 8", ... 22", 24", 26", and so forth). Similarly, if you set the Increment to 3", the cope dimension is always divisible by 3 (3", 6", 9", 12", and so forth). Setting the Increment value to 0 causes the cope to be the exact length needed to clear.

Sizing Rule

Enter the sizing rule code for the cope dimensions. Valid codes are listed in the AllCodeLists.xls workbook on the StructACSizingRule sheet in the Codelist Number column.

Squared End

Specifies whether the end of the member is squared or skewed when the two members are not perpendicular. Set this option to 0 if you want the member end to look like end A in the figure. Set this option to 1 if you want the member end to look like end B in the figure.

Always Planar

Specifies whether the end of the member has copes or not. Set this option to 0 if you want the member end to look like end A in the figure. Set this option to 1 if you want the member end to look like end B in the figure.

Definition

Specifies the base plate assembly connection definition macro.
