Category in Advanced options dialog box: Welds
When XS_AISC_WELD_MARK is set to
TRUEto use the weld size as the leg length (z) of the fillet welds.
FALSEto use the weld size as the throat thickness (a) of the fillet welds.
The weld prefix overrides the
setting of the advanced option
XS_ISO_LEG_LENGTH_AS_WELDSIZE. If you have set the prefix of a
weld to a, the weld size determines the
design throat thickness. When the weld prefix is z, the weld size determines the leg length.
If the last character of the weld
prefix is s, Tekla Structures creates the solid weld object so that
equals weld size.
This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options database.
After changing this setting, modify existing welds or their properties to activate the new setting and to update the weld solids.
