Category in Advanced options dialog box Drawing properties

Use to add additional parts that are not usually part of a column assembly to an anchor bolt plan, such as anchor rods or leveling plates. First define a general arrangement drawing filter and then give that filter name as the value for this advanced option.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options database.

In the following example we will make anchor rods and leveling plates visible in an anchor bolt plan.

  1. Go to the File menu and click Settings > Advanced options > Drawing Properties.

  2. Enter the name of the general arrangement drawing filter for the advanced option XS_ANCHOR_BOLT_PLAN_ADDITIONAL_PARTS_FILTER . In this example, we will use the name SHOW_IN_ABPLAN (default).

  3. On the Drawings & Reports tab, click Drawing properties > GA drawing.

  4. In the general arrangement drawing properties dialog box, click Filter.

  5. Click Add row.

  6. Select Part as the Category, Name as the Property, Equals as the Condition and enter*ANCHOR*LEVEL in the Value box.

  7. Enter the name of the drawing filter, SHOW_IN_ABPLAN, in the Save as box and click Save as.

  8. Click Cancel to exit the dialog box.

When you create an anchor bolt plan, both the anchor rods and the leveling plates are shown in the drawing. In the drawing below, the name of the anchor rod is "ANCHOR ROD" and the name of the leveling plate is "LEVELING PLATE."
