Places additional packing material thickness below idlers so that they mount perfectly on the trusses. The software automatically calculates the required packing thickness for the 3D idler symbols in the model. The packing thickness can be different for each idler.

A packing plate is a distinct object type in the model and has no relationship to plates created in the Molded Forms task.

Additional packing is generally required when the belt transitions between a linear and curved profile and the distances vary between idlers and trusses.

Before packing:

After adding packing:


Use the Tools > Run Reports command to generate an idler packing thickness report. For more information about reports, see Run Report.
