Displays the foundation port properties that you can edit.
Displays the defined category name for the selected nozzle. This data is retrieved from the Equipment and Furnishings reference data.
Indicates that the port type is foundation port and is read-only.
This button is not available when editing properties for a foundation port.
General Properties for All Foundation Ports
Specifies the type of foundation port. The available types are Rectangular Foundation Port, Circular Foundation Port, Single Hole, and No Hole. The Type changes the other properties available on the foundation port.
Specifies the name applied to the selected foundation port. Foundation ports do not require naming rules. If a naming rule is not applied, a default naming convention is applied, such as the equipment name with the foundation port number appended (for example: TankA-FoundationPort1).
Specifies a default structural foundation for the equipment. For more information on default foundations for specific equipment objects, see the Equipment.xls file.
Specifies the thickness of the liner for the foundation port.
Specifies the offset value to be used by Structure when the software constructs the foundation for the foundation port. Smart 3D does not currently use this property.
Specifies the diameter of the bolt holes.
Behavior Controlled by User
Specifies whether you can delete the object or not. Select False to prevent anyone from deleting the object from the model.
Circular Foundation Port Type
When you select the Circular Foundation Port type, the software generates an equally spaced circular bolt hole pattern based on the Number of Holes and the Bolt Circle Diameter properties.
Additional properties are:
Number of Holes
Specifies the number of bolt holes for the foundation port.
Bolt Circle Diameter
Specifies the diameter of the circle on which the bolt holes are drilled. Smart 3D spaces the bolt holes evenly around this circle. For example, the bolt circle for four bolt holes might look something like the following figure:
Rectangular Foundation Port Type
When you select the Rectangular Foundation Port type, the software uses "bolt hole 1" as the foundation port origin with the y-axis pointing to "bolt hole 2".
Additional properties are:
Number of Bolt Holes in X
Specifies the number of bolt holes on the x-axis of the foundation port.
Number of Bolt Holes in Y
Specifies the number of bolt holes in the y-axis of the foundation port.
Distance between Holes (X)
Specifies the distance between the bolt holes on the x-axis of the foundation port.
Distance between Holes (Y)
Specifies the distance between the bolt holes on the y-axis of the foundation port.
Single Hole Type
When you select the Single Hole foundation port type, the software places the local coordinate system origin at the center of the bolt hole. The software does not generate a default footprint boundary with this option.
No Hole Type
When you select the No Hole foundation port type, the software generates a default footprint boundary and places the local coordinate system origin for the foundation port at the lower left with the y-axis pointing up.
If the properties on this dialog are read-only, the selected foundation port is part of the delivered equipment object.
