Location of Tube Object Settings Command

You can access the Settings icon from the Tubes toolbar opened after entering the Tube command under the Entities title of the Ribbon menu Home tab .

Properties Tab

Specifications

Color

Select the color of the tube object from the color palette that opens when clicked.

Line type

Select the line type of the tube object that appears in the plan from the drop-down list when clicked.

Materiel

Select the material of the object from the material list that opens when clicked.

Tile X/Y

Determines the number of times to repeat the texture to be wrapped around the object in the X and Y direction.

Spherical coordinate/Horizontal

It is the angle that the axle makes with the horizontal (x-axis).

Spherical coordinate/Vertical

It is the angle that the axis makes with the vertical (z-axis).

Vectoral X/Y/Z

Coordinate values ​​that express the vector direction of the rotation axis.

Node elevation

The object is elevated according to the floor base.

Segment count

It is the value that determines the number of surfaces of the object to be created.

Height

It is the height of the created object.

Outside radius

The radius of the outside surface of the hollow object is entered.

Inside radius

The radius of the inside surface of the hollow object is entered.

Cover

The surfaces to be left open or closed respectively are marked. If it is checked, the relevant surface is closed.

3D preview

It is a 3 dimensional view of the tube object. You can rotate the image around itself by holding down the left mouse button and moving it. You can zoom in and out by holding the right mouse button and moving the mouse.

Components Tab

Add building components: Assigns the building materials defined for the detailed building components metering to the wall object.

  • Click the Add Building Component button.

  • The Component Selection dialog will open.

  • In this dialog, click the folder related to the material from the list on the left. Choose the material you want to use.

  • Set the parameters on the right.

  • Click the OK button. The "Component Selection" dialog will be closed. A summary line of the material will appear in the Building Components tab. More than one material assignment can be made to an object.

In the usage section

No modification: The amount of material to be assigned for the object in question is marked when it is desired to be used in the size that was previously specified in the material definition.

Percentage: This line is marked when it is desired to be used with the percentage of the amount previously determined in the material definition, as much as the value entered in the "Value 1" line in the same dialog. For example, if the material quantity is 70, if the line “Value 1” says 40, it means the material amount will be used up to 40 * 70%.

Override: This line is marked so that the quantity entered in the “Value 1” line in the same dialog will be used instead of the quantity previously determined in the material definition.

Multiplier: This line is marked in order to use the value found at the end of the multiplication of the value entered in the "Value 1" line in the same dialog with the amount previously determined in the material definition.

Fraction: This line is marked so that the amount determined in the material definition before will be used as the fraction value created by the values ​​entered in the "Value 1" and "Value 2" lines in the same dialog. "Value 1" is the denominator "Value 2" is the denominator.

Proportional to: It is determined to what scale-area, circumference, length etc.-, region-side area, top, edge etc.- the material will be proportioned to. The content of the proportional list box is automatically determined according to the object and the size of the material. For example, a different list will be created if an operation is made for the column, a different list will be created for the library, a different list for the volume, and a different list for the field.

Following are the lines that appear in the proportion list according to the tube and material size.

Measure

Listed

Explanation

Constant

Independent

The fixed measure used will be used exactly as the amount.

Length

Independent

It means that the length measure found while defining the material will be used exactly as the length value.

Length

It means that the length of the material will be found by multiplying the length measure found when defining the material and the length of the object.

Area

Independent

It means that the area measure found while defining the material will be used exactly as the field value.

Outside area

It means that the area measure found while defining the material will be used by multiplying the element outer area.

Volume

Independent

It means that the volume measurement found when defining the material will be used exactly as the volume value.

Volume

It means that the volume measure found when defining the material will be multiplied by the object volume.

Count

Independent

The number measure found while defining the material will be used exactly as the number value.

Count

The number measure found while defining the material will be used exactly as the number value.
