XS_​SOLID_​USE_​HIGHER_​ACCURACY

This advanced option must be set in an initialization (.ini) file.

Note:

This advanced option increases the number of faces in solid objects, which slows down Tekla Structures. We recommend using this advanced option only when needed.

When you set this advanced option to TRUE in the options.ini file in the model folder:

  • When you have set part representation to Exact in the Display dialog box, parts are shown with roundings. Also weld polygons include profile roundings.

  • When the advanced option XS_​DISPLAY_​FILLET_​EDGES is set to TRUE, lines are shown between the roundings and straight segments of parts.

  • Part volume, area and net weight is and are closer to real manufactured values.

Set this advanced option to TRUE in the options.ini file in model folder. The default value is FALSE.

Limitations

  • Do not activate this advanced option when you create NC/DSTV files, because it can lead to inaccuracies in the exported data.

  • Do not activate this advanced option when you create single part or assembly drawings, because it can lead to unnecessary dimension line creation.

  • In components, some stiffeners might bite into flanges of columns or beams.

  • Some bolt edge distances are not correctly calculated.
