To Create Connections for a Sketched Thin Beam Section
For this procedure you must first sketch a beam section with at least one open chain or unconnected line segments. You must also assign thickness values to the entities between which you want to create a connection.
1. Click Sketch > Point to create construction points at locations on both entities where you want to create connections.
2. Click File > Setup > Feature Tools > Connect.
3. Hold down the CTRL key and select the following entities:
A construction point
The entity on which the point lies
The entity to which you want to connect
The selected entities are highlighted.
4. Click OK on the Select dialog box. If the connection is successfully created, a filled green dot appears at the connection point. A green line connects the two entities.
* To create a connection between two entities the following relation must be satisfied:
* [(t1+t2)/2]*0.9≤d≤[(t1+t2)/2]*1.1
* where t1 and t2 are the thickness values of the two entities. d is the distance between them.
To delete a connection select it and press the delete key on your keyboard.
