Click the Reinforcement
The Reinforcement dialog box is displayed.
Select Sketch.2 as the planar profile to be
The profile can be open or closed.
If no profile is defined, clicking the Sketcher
icon enables you to sketch the profile you need.
If you are not satisfied with the profile you
selected, note that you can:
Enter 8mm in the Length field to define the
distance from the sketch plane up to the ceiling.
To define the opening, enter the value of your choice in
the Length field to define the distance from the sketch plane
up to the opening.
Instead of using the Length option, you can
set To shell . This capability extends the reinforcement to a
shellable volume in the active body, in the opposite direction of the
height. The extension of the reinforcement profile must fit inside the
boundaries of the shellable volume. Otherwise, no extension will occur.
In the Width field, enter 4mm to define the
width of the reinforcement. The width is distributed equally to both
sides of the profile.
Checking the Mirrored extent option extrudes
the profile in the opposite direction using the same length value as the
one defined for the first length.
Clicking the Reverse Direction button reverses the extrusion
direction. Another way of reversing the direction is by clicking the
arrow in the geometry area.
By default, the Normal to profile option
is checked, meaning that the profile is extruded normal to the sketch
plane. If you wish to specify another direction, just uncheck the option,
and then select a geometrical element to be used as the new reference.
Clicking the Reverse Direction button reverses
the extrusion direction.
If you wish to define a draft angle, just click the
Draft tab, then check the Angle field and enter the
desired value in the Angle field.
Checking the Lateral radius option enables you
to fillet lateral edges. Then, you merely need to set the radius value of
