|This task explains the bending design rule.|
|The bending design
rule included with this application is meant to make sure that you stay
within the defined limits when you bend tubes. The table is used by more
than one function:
This is a standard-specific design rule and the associated table is located in the directory ...\intel_a\Startup\EquipmentAndSystems\XXXXX\Standards, where XXXXX is the application name, such as Tubing.
|1.||The image below shows the bending
rule table for the Tubing Design product. Tables for other applications
will have different entries but operate in the manner described below.
Column headings MaterialCategory, NominalSize, Schedule and WallThickness contain the input data. (At present WallThickness is optional.) If you are adding an entry then enter the relevant input data in these columns.
The columns BendRadius, MinTangentLength, MinGripLength and MachineNumber contain the output data. Enter the relevant output data in these fields.
Reading Line 1 above: for a 3/16" stainless steel tube from Schedule Standard (input data), the maximum bend radius should be .375 inches, the minimum tangent length should be 1 inch, the minimum grip length should be .863 inches and Machine 1 should be used to bend the tube (output data). If your design does not match any of the entries in the table then you will get an error message.
You must enter correct data for the attributes Material Category, Nominal Size and Schedule, or the rule will not work.
Data for WallThickness is optional, the rule will work with or without it. However, if you enter any value in the table then the part attribute must have the correct value also, or you may get an error message.
