XS_​THICKNESS_​PARAMETER_​IS_​CROSS_​SECTION_​THICKNESS

Category in Advanced options dialog box: Profiles

Use this advanced option to define the method to measure the thickness of parts (flanges, plates, walls and so on). When set to FALSE, the thickness parameter of the profile defines the actual thickness. When set to TRUE, the thickness parameter defines the cross section thickness (which is not same as the actual thickness if the part is sloped).

The default value is FALSE. We recommend that you use this value.

The change applies to the following profile types:

  • SPD

  • EPD

  • I

  • RHS

  • PD

  • P
