Space Lover Settings Command Location

It is located in the steel purlin toolbar that appears after the space purlin command is run.

General Tab

Specifications

Entity ID

Space is the purlins name that will appear in the plan, drawing and report.

Main color

It is the color of purlin. It is scrolled on the color palette opened by clicking and holding the button with the left mouse button. When the desired color is reached, the button is released. The color box turns into the selected color. If clicked together with the Shift key, the pen thickness of the relevant color can be adjusted.

Material

In the solid model, the material to be coated can be selected. The element is overlaid with the selected material and displayed as such in the solid model. Click on the down arrow button with the left mouse button. The appropriate material is selected from the drop-down list of materials.

Texture world length

The texture length is entered. For example; If 1 meter is entered, the selected material texture width is taken as 1 meter and the selected object is overlaid. If the texture is considered to be square, the surfaces of the objects are covered with 1x1 textures lined up side by side.

Name text - X/Y displacement

X and Y coordinates of the purlin dimension text are entered. If the size X value is entered positive, the text moves from the edge to the left, and if the negative value is entered, it moves to the right. If the text Y value is positive, the text moves up, and if it is negative, it moves down. The directions indicated here should be considered according to the direction of view.

Name text - Height

Dimension text height is entered.

Name text - Color

Size is the color of the font height. It is scrolled on the color palette opened by clicking and holding the button with the left mouse button. When the desired color is reached, the button is released. The color box turns into the selected color. If clicked together with the Shift key, the pen thickness of the relevant color can be adjusted.

Name text - Font

The font of the size text is selected from the dialog that opens when clicked.

Section List Tab

Specifications

Section list

It is the list where the profile to be used for space purlin is selected. Separate section selections can be made for the top headings, connections and bottom headings. The list includes steel profiles previously added from the profile library.

Load section

Click the Load Section icon to add a new profile. When clicked, the steel profile library is displayed. The profile to be used is selected from the list.

Rotation

The profile is created by rotating it around its axis according to a value selected as 0, 90, 180, 270.

Schematic drawing

The schematic drawing and dimensions of the selected section are shown.

Space Geometry Tab

Specifications

Space purlin width

Space purlin width is determined.

Bottom height

The bottom height is entered.

Segment count

The number of space purlin pieces is determined.

Segment start/end offset

The distance of the pieces from the start and the end is determined.

Placement Tab

Specifications

Count based

Space purlins can be drawn by entering numbers.

İnterval 1/2

Space indicates the distance between purlins.

İnterval based

Steel purlins can be drawn by entering the distance between the distant purlins.

Count

Indicates the number of space purlins.

Place extra steel on exact last interval

If selected, it adds space purlin to the last interval.

Spaced first element/Spaced last element

Since the first and last space purlins usually coincide on the element, they are options that can be used to eliminate this situation. If checked, space purlins from the beginning and ending are not drawn.

Offsets

The distances of the space purlins from the beginning and the ending can be entered.

If the options perpendicular to the first/second parents are selected, the offset distances can be adjusted by keeping the perpendicularity condition to one of the main beams constant.

If the free offsets option is selected, offset distances can be adjusted independently of the main beam parts.

Extensions Tab

Specifications

Over the top

It enables the main elements, on which the space purlins are modeled, to be modeled to sit on the upper head.

Top oriented

It ensures that the upper head of the space purlin is aligned with the upper head of the main steel elements.

Middle oriented

It ensures that the middle point of the space purlins and the middle of the main steel elements are aligned.

Vertical displacement (delta)

The distance entered in the box allows modeling of the space purlin under the main steel element top head.

Connection type

Select from the drop-down list for automatically generated slip connection between main steel element and purlins.

Extensions

It determines how long the space purlins will be extended from the main elements.

Inner distance

If the upper header option is used, the distance between the two purlin ends should be entered at the point where the space purlins touch the main elements.
