Vormen toevoegen

SkyCiv’s Section Builder allows you to create sections by adding shapes onto the design area. All members only have one section, however each section can be made up of one or more shapes. Adding shapes can be done in one of four ways.

  • Section Templates
  • Database
  • Op maat
  • My Sections

Each of these four ways are grouped in their own menu as shown below.

Section Templates

The Templates menu allows you to use one of the 18 standard shape templates. It is the quickest and easiest way to add a shape onto the design area. Simply adjust the dimensions to suit the shape you are after.

Kiezen van:

  • Rechthoekig / vierkant
  • Hol rechthoekig / vierkant
  • Circulaire
  • Hol rond
  • Stuur ons een e-mail als u wilt dat deze functie eerder wordt ge├»mplementeerd
  • T-vorm
  • Hoek (L-vorm)
  • Dubbele hoek (L-vorm)
  • Lipped Angle (L-vorm)
  • Kanaal
  • Dubbel kanaal
  • Driehoekig
  • Holle driehoekig
  • Kokerbalk
  • Z-Shape
  • Lipped Z-Shape
  • Hat Shape
  • Bol plat

To get started, expand the Section Templates menu, and select one of the template shapes. You can double click your selection, or single click and click the ‘Addbutton to add the shape onto the board.

If the ‘Clear Otherscheckbox is ticked, it means that every time a new template shape is added, it will remove any previously added shapes. This checkbox is ticked by default. To add more than one template shape, make sure this checkbox is unticked.

In a similar way to the Templates menu, a ‘Clear Otherscheckbox is present. If ticked, then every time a new Database shape is added, all other shapes will be cleared from the design area.

Op maat

The Custom menu allows you to create your own shapes. This is a useful feature when the shape you are after does not exist in the templates. We provide three ways for you to create shapes.

  • Punten vorm – Define a shape by its points. Specify a fillet at any of the points.
  • Lijnvorm – Define a shape by a line path and thickness. Specify a uniform fillet.
  • Import DXF FileSketch your shape in any CAD package and then save the file in DXF to be imported.

The way to use each of these features will be explored in detail in their own documentation section.

My Sections

The My Sections menu allows you to save, laden, and delete your sections. This will allow you to quickly and easily reuse or continue to work on your sections in the future.

Notitie: Cross section assignment to member

It is important to note that when a member gets assigned to a cross section, the line of the member always acts through the centroid of the section. Dit om duidelijk te maken dat de (0,0) co├Ârdineren (oorsprong) van de sectiebouwer is niet standaard het zwaartepunt.

U kunt uw sectie overal op het z-y cartesiaanse vlak schetsen en vertalen, en het lid wordt toegewezen aan het echte zwaartepunt. Translations and rotations of shapes allow for relative positioning of shapes when creating a section that is made up of more than one shape. Als u niet wilt dat de lijn van het lid door het zwaartepunt gaat, dan kun je de “Offset A” en offset B” van het lid.
