In a Group Element there may be so many Sub Parts attached to that along with the drill, e.g. Cleat angles, Stiffeners. To know the exact location where those parts to be fixed or welded to main part, some contour or scribe marking is needed so that fabricator can easily assemble the Group Part. For that, in NC data there should be Contour mark or marking by scribe.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Original issue description:
Hi,My client have this peddinghaus machine that can drill holes on steel and also can provide etching/scribe where cleat is to be welded. Can Prosteel generate this automatically on model?
When you open the ProSteel NC Data Dialog you will find Marking attached part in Data Section in left of the window. In that you need to tick on Mark Attached Parts and in Marking Options Mark by scribing as shown in below snap.
Please note that marking data will only be generated for the parts which are attached to the main Group part and which have a minimum gap what to be mentioned in Ignore gap up to.
