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.
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.
Specifies the parent system for the conveyor belt. Click More to display the Select System dialog box.
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.
Specifies the width of the conveyor belt. You can change the default value.
Specifies the thickness of the conveyor belt. You can change the default value.
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.
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.
Opens the Sketch 2D environment in which you can draw.
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.
