CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 753Command line: SPCREATEUMARKER.

The "Marker" tool is designed specifically to create a connection between an arbitrary graphic object (primitive) nanoCAD and a spreadsheet-specification. A universal marker is a translator of data from drawing objects into the nanoCAD Construction  23table by means of special means - marker attributes.

Marker attributes can be visible or hidden. The values of the visible attributes are displayed in the drawing as text strings.

The marker, as an object nanoCAD Construction  23, can be saved in the object library and used repeatedly. The marker can also be included in the groups of objects nanoCAD Construction  23, providing the ability to specify the entire functional groups.

Create marker

Let's consider creating a marker in the form of a positional leader.

   1.     Set the required current scale.

   2.     Insert two text lines into the drawing and draw a horizontal line between them.

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 754

These objects will form a leader shelf template with two text labels. To use text strings as marker attributes, the first character must be "$".

   3.     Call the command CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 755"Add marker", use a box or crossing box to select the objects that made up the marker.

CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 756

   4.     Snap the base point of the marker.

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 757

   5.     The "Creation of a marker" dialog box appears. The properties table will list the attributes entered in the callout text boxes:

CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 758

Column "Name" contains the working name of the attribute.

Column "Description" describes the attribute.

In column "Value" the values of the attribute are entered. Values can be either numeric or text. Auxiliary commands are available in the context menu of the "Value" column.

CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 759

Column "Attribute property" is used to indicate the type of the input attribute. Various attribute labels are provided to indicate their type. The default is "Set to simple field".

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 760

Attribute types:

                 ·     Add property from object - allows you to set an attribute value by associating it with the attribute value of another object in the drawing.

Important!

An object is understood as an object from the base of standard products.

After choosing the type, it is suggested to select the object and the object attribute.

CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 761

After selecting an attribute, its value falls into the "Value" column, and in the "Attribute property" column the name of the selected attribute.

CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 762

After assigning an attribute, you can change the type of relationship with an object attribute:

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 763One-way communication - changing the value in an attribute of an object affects the value of the marker.

CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 764Two way communication - changing the value in the marker affects the attribute of the object, and vice versa.

CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 765Basic communication - an attribute of an object can only be changed from a marker. If the attribute is a table value in a basic relationship, the closest value from the table is displayed. The entered value will be displayed in brackets.

                 ·     Set To Unique string - allows you to set a counter attribute that will increase its value by 1 for each subsequent inserted marker. In the "Value" column for the visible counter attribute, you can specify a character string - a prefix. In the drawing, the counter value will be appended to the prefix.

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 766

CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 767

                 ·     Set to calculated field - allows you to set the value of an attribute using a mathematical expression, using references to other marker attributes, operators, and mathematical functions. The name of the desired attribute is used as a reference to another marker attribute.

Note:

Computed attributes are defined and calculated from top to bottom.

 

Important!

Calculations are performed in curly braces.

Function:

CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 768

Result:

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 769

                 ·     Automatically increment - allows you to set a counter attribute that will increase its value by 1 compared to the same attribute of the previous inserted marker. Such a counter attribute allows repetition of the same values for several markers, which distinguishes it from an attribute set to a unique value.

CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 770

CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 771

                 ·     Set to simple field - sets the default attribute type to plain text.

CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 807Command line: SPTWIZ.

Template Wizard is designed to create easy to use tools of commonly used design elements drawing.

Basic rules

When the command will be asked to select an object to create a template. If the object was preselected, then immediately start dialogue Template Wizard.

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 808

Command Options

Button Create template - creates a template in the database or applies the changes made in the editor.

Button From - Starts the form template.

Button CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 809Create a new template - Creates a new template in the database based on the selected graphics and created form.

Button CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 810Delete form - deletes the created form template.

Example of creating a template

Consider the example of creating a template signs of roughness. To do this, the drawing shall bear one designation:

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 811

After you run the Wizard Templates chosen designation roughness.

To work with the template you must save it in the database that will be invited to do by pressing the button CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 812.

CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 813

Then click on the Create a form and create a form using the notation tools online forms.

For example, we can take two parameters - the first line designations and direction of irregularities. Both parameters are added to the form as a combo box (drag while holding Ctrl).

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 814 > CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 815

After editing, we obtain the form of the following form:

CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 816

Close the form editor, click to update in template.

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 817

Template will be saved in the database and will be displayed in the object manager.

CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 818

The command switches the display mode of hidden lines.

nanoCAD Construction  23 allows you to hide individual graphics elements. The overlapping nature of the base object or user block is determined by a special parameter - the overlap level ZOrder. ZOrder - this is a numeric parameter whose value determines the overlap priority. An object with a large ZOrder value overrides an object with a lower value.

Primitives nanoCAD have the lowest overlapping level and therefore are always overlapped by objects from the database. That at an insertion of object nanoCAD Construction  23 objects nanoCAD did not overlap, it is necessary to disable the switch in the object insert dialog "Cover primitives":

CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 828

The area in the drawing that the base object covers nanoCAD Construction  23, is called "Contour of suppression". An overlap exists within this contour.

Arrows - move outside the extension lines, first arrows, then text.

Text - move outside the extension lines, first the text, then the arrows.

Both text and arrows - if there is not enough space, then both text and arrows are located outside the extension lines.

Always keep text between ext lines – always place text between extension lines.

Suppress arrows if they don't inside extension lines - if there is not enough space for arrows between the extension lines, they are not displayed.

Text placement

Selecting an action when the dimension text is moved from the default position (specified by the dimension style):

Beside the dimension line – the dimension line moves with the text.

Over dimension line, with leader – dimension lines do not move, but a leader is drawn that connects them and the text. The leader is not drawn if the text is too close to the dimension line.

Over dimension line, without leader – no connections are made between the text and the dimension line.

Scale dimension feature

Use overall scale of – setting the scale factor for all dimension style parameters that specify dimensions, distances and indents, including the height of the text and the size of the arrows.

Precision – setting the number of decimal places in the dimension text.

Fraction format – setting format for fractional texts.

Decimal separator – selection of separator type for sizes expressed in decimal units.

Round off – setting rounding rules for all types of dimensions, except for angular dimensions. Example: for a given accuracy of 0.25, all measured distances are rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.25. When you enter a value of 1.0, all measured distances are rounded to the nearest whole value. The number of digits in fractional parts of distances depends on the precision specified in the "Precision" field.

Prefix – defining the dimension text prefix. You can enter special characters or use control codes to display special characters. For example, the control code "%% c" matches the diameter character. An explicit prefix takes precedence over default prefixes such as those used for diameter and radius.

Suffix – definition of a dimension text suffix. You can enter special characters or use control codes to display special characters. For example, typing the suffix mm will add it to the dimension text. The suffix entered here takes precedence over the default suffixes.

Measurement scale

Scale factor – setting the scale factor for linear dimensions. It is recommended not to change the default value of 1.00. The factor has no effect on angular dimensions, rounding accuracy, positive and negative tolerances.

Apply to layout dimension only – applies a scale factor only to dimensions plotted in layout viewports. It is recommended to disable the setting.

Multiplier for all units - setting the conversion factor from basic units to alternative ones. Example: To convert inches to millimeters, enter 25.4. The value has no effect on angular dimensions and does not apply to rounding precision or positive and negative tolerances.

Round distances to – sets the rounding rule for all types of dimensions, except for angular dimensions. Example: when setting the accuracy to 0.25, all measured distances are rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.25. When you enter a value of 1.0, all measured distances are rounded to the nearest whole value. The number of digits in fractional parts of distances depends on the precision specified in the "Precision" field.

Prefix – defining the prefix of the alternate dimension text. You can enter special characters or use control codes to display special characters. For example, the control code "%% c" matches the diameter character. An explicit prefix takes precedence over default prefixes such as those used for diameter and radius.

Suffix – defining the suffix of the alternate dimension text. You can enter special characters or use control codes to display special characters. For example, entering the suffix mm will add it to the text. The suffix entered here takes precedence over the default suffixes.

Dialog

CAD software DRAWING DESIGN 1240

The "Elevation" text box contains the numerical value of the level in meters. The default value that appears in the window is automatically calculated and is the Y-axis distance from the insertion point of the base elevation to the specified elevation point (for the base elevation, the default is 0). Marks above zero are displayed with a "+" prefix, and below zero with a "-" prefix. The 0.000 mark has no prefix.

In the "Comment" column, you can enter explanatory text for the mark.

The CAD drawing DRAWING DESIGN 1241"Associative" button controls the association of the elevation mark with the base elevation. When editing associative elevations in the dialog box, the height value field is grayed out and the CAD drafting DRAWING DESIGN 1242"Associative" button is shown when pressed.
