Size & Texture
Sizes calculation Tab
Selection of components can be accomplished in several ways:
by picking components on display. If you will keep the CTRL button down through selection, you will deselect the component.
by applying a filter. On the Pull-Down list, select Part's iProperty which you prefer to establish as the criteria for selection. Part Name, Description and Category fields can be specified as selection criteria. In the text window bellow you can specify mask of selection. For example criteria of selection is Category, mask of selection - "C*". Such filter will select all Woodwork4Inventor parts. Start selection by pushing the funnel button. If you do not select any partthe operation will be applied to all "C*" category parts automatically.
here you can specify the Blank overlap value. Woodwork4Inventor calculates the Blank Range box in accordance with the Part 3D model and Edge Band settings.
You can specify the blank overlap in each direction as shown.
If the part is volume type, for example timber (category C01), you can specify the overlap in the thickness direction.
Blank can be viewed by click on . Blank appears as a translucent green box.
The direction is determined by these rules:
1. Finds the largest area plane face on the component
2. Finds the largest straight edge on the largest-area plane face
The direction of this straight edge is considered to be as the initial material texture direction. You can manipulate it by using the buttons:
Switch On view of the material texture direction. The material texture direction is shown as a straight blue line.
Resets to the initial material texture direction.
Align the material texture direction along straight edge of the part.
Clear material from the part. Part becomes a simple Autodesk Inventor part with Autodesk Inventor Default coloring color.
Rotate the material texture direction from the current direction by a specified angle.
