Belt Properties

Displays the Conveyor Belt Properties dialog box, in which you can view properties for the conveyor belt. For more information, see Conveyor Belt Properties Dialog Box.

Select Coordinate System

Specifies an existing plant coordinate system to associate with the conveyor belt. The coordinate system must have, at a minimum, one Y plane at the origin.

Select Path Options

Specifies the path creation method. Click either Path by Sketch 2D or Path by Import XML/XLS to indicate how the conveyor belt is defined.

Finish

Places the conveyor belt.

Path by Sketch2D

Indicates that the conveyor belt is placed from Sketch 2D.

Path by Import XML/XLS

Indicates that the conveyor belt is placed from an .xml or .xls file.

Select Parent

Specifies the parent system for the conveyor belt. Click More to display the Select System dialog box.

Belt Designation

Specifies the material, default width, and default thickness of the belt. The software delivers the following belt designations:

  • ST1250_NN_600X6 - ST1250 nylon belt with a 600mm default width and a 6mm default thickness.

  • ST1251_EP_800X8 - ST1251 elastopolymer belt with an 800mm default width and an 8mm default thickness.

  • ST1252_PU_1000X10 - ST1252 polyurethane belt with a 1000mm default width and a 10mm default thickness.

  • ST1253_ST_1200X12 - ST1253 steel cord belt with a 1200mm default width and a 12mm default thickness.

All belt designations have a 3mm top cover thickness and a 2mm bottom cover thickness.

Belt Width

Specifies the width of the conveyor belt. You can change the default value.

Belt Thickness

Specifies the thickness of the conveyor belt. You can change the default value.

Name

Specifies the name of the conveyor belt.

Export to XML

Displays the Save As dialog box so that you can export the conveyor belt profile to an .xml file. This option is only available when you are modifying an existing conveyor belt.

Import File Path

Specifies the path to the .xml or .xls file that contains the conveyor belt definition. Click Browse to browse to the file.

2D Sketcher Options

Some 2D Sketcher options listed below may not be applicable for the active command.

 Sketching Plane

Specifies the sketching plane. This is the first step in defining the object.

 Add Intersecting Item

Allows you to select objects that intersect the sketching plane in the 3D environment. You see the selected objects in the Sketch 2D environment when you are drawing.

 Add Projection Item

Allows you to select objects that do not intersect the sketching plane in the 3D environment. The objects are projected onto the sketching plane, and you see the selected objects in the Sketch 2D environment when you are drawing.

Sketch 2D

Opens the Sketch 2D environment in which you can draw.

 Coincident Plane

Specifies that you want to sketch on the plane that you select.

 Offset from Plane

Specifies a sketching plane that is offset from a plane that you select. If you choose this option, you must define the offset distance.

 Angle from plane

Specifies a sketching plane that is at a specified angle from a plane that you select. If you choose this option, you must define an axis of rotation and the angle or slope.

 Plane by Point and Vector

Specifies the sketching plane using two points to define a vector normal to the sketching plane and a third point to define the sketching plane position along the vector.

 Plane by Three Points

Specifies the sketching plane using three points that you specify in the model.

Plane by Vectors Normal

Specifies the sketching plane as being normal to another plane that you select and having a rotation parallel to a vector that you define.
