This connection is a column and beam connection.

Location of the Double Angle Connection Command

You can access it under the Ribbon menu, Connection tab, Connection title.

Usage Steps

If Draw in Fast Mode is Active

  • From the Connection menu, click the Double Angle Connection icon.

  • In 3D perspective view, move the mouse pointer closer to the element, close to the support

  • After this process, the virtual image of the connection will appear.

  • If the connection is suitable, create the connection by clicking the left mouse button.

  • The connection will occur with default settings.

If Draw in Fast Mode is Inactive

  • From the Connection menu, click the Double Angle Connection icon.

  • Click the column then the beam before the 3D perspective view.

  • The double angle connection settings dialog will open.

  • The connection will occur when the wanted settings are made and the OK button is clicked.

Location of the Double Angle Connection Settings Dialog

If the draw in fast mode is active, the connection settings will be opened automatically.

If the draw in fast mode is inactive, select the connection and click the right mouse button. Click the Properties line from the right click menu that opens.

Welds Tab

In the Welds tab, the weld properties of the connections given in the schematic representation are set.

Specifications

Welds

The thickness, type and angle values ​​of the welds to be made at the connections are given. The information on whether it will be done on the construction site or not is entered.

Weld electrode

The strengths of the weld electrodes are defined in the design inputs. The strength of the main element in the weld joint is controlled under the condition that it has less strength than the weld strength.

To create the weld electrode, provide the information "Name" and "Weld metal tensile strength" in the dialog that opens after clicking "Create New".

Welding geometry is determined automatically by the program. These properties can be changed to easily determine the connection properties. Geometry features are in accordance with industry standards and in the form specified in AISC.
