 Places a standalone lapped plate part around a closed free edge (such as an opening or sketched feature) of another plate part.

You complete three steps when you are creating a plate edge reinforcement. First, use the Properties command to define properties and defaults for the plate edge reinforcement. Next, define the edge to be reinforced. Then, define the shape of the plate by defining inner and outer offsets and the side of the reinforced plate on which to place the edge reinforcement.

Plate edge reinforcements can be solid (single offset) or ringed (double offset).

Plate Edge Reinforcement Part Ribbon

Displays the options that you use to place the plate edge reinforcement in the model.

 Plate Edge Reinforcement Properties

Activates the Plate Edge Reinforcement Part Properties dialog box, which you use to view and modify the properties of the plate part that you are about to place in the model. The initial properties default from the selected structural specification. For more information, see Plate Edge Reinforcement Part Properties Dialog Box.

Pick Edge

Select the closed free edge to be reinforced. You can select only one edge.

Shape Definition

Define the inner and outer contour offsets of the plate edge reinforcement.

Side of Plate

Define the side of the reinforced plate on which to place the plate edge reinforcement.

Finish

Places the reinforcement using the defined parameters.

 Cancel

Clears all selected planes or boundaries.

 Accept

Accepts all selected planes or boundaries.

Thickness Direction

Select the direction in which to apply the thickness. The software displays an arrow indicating the active direction.

Material

Select the material for the plate part.

Grade

Select the material grade for the plate part.

Thickness

Select the material thickness for the plate part.

Shape Definition Controls

Inner Offset

Specify the offset distance for the inner contour of the plate reinforcement from the selected edge.

  • Pick a value of Blank for a solid reinforcement covering the opening or sketched feature.

  • Type a value of 0 for a reinforcement flush with the edge.

  • Type a negative value for a reinforcement overlapping the edge.

Outer Offset

Specify the offset distance for the outer contour of the plate reinforcement from the selected edge. The outer offset must be a positive value.
