Defines pillars, which are similar to Smart 3D members. Pillars are created in the same way as the parent plate, as defined for Instance on the panel. Smart 3D transforms local coordinates into global coordinates. Smart 3D imports a pillar as ImpStiffenerType, with profile type of ImpPillar.

BendType

Specifies the curvature of part. This field is optional.

<Material>

Specifies a material grade as defined in reference data. For more information, see <Material> in Reference Data XML Tags.

<BarShape>

Defines the profile cross-section for the group.

BarSectionId

Specifies a profile cross-section as defined in the reference data. For more information, see <BarSection> in Reference Data XML Tags.

BarType

Specifies a unique identifier for the profile cross-section. Smart 3D maps BarType to the Stiffener Bar Type property.

<Parameters>

Defines dimension parameters for the profile cross-section.

<Crosssection>

Defines the height of the profile cross-section.

StartPoint2d

Defines the starting node point coordinates in the 2D U-V plane.

<Segment2d>

Specifies a segment of the contour in the 2D U-V plane. The segment can be a straight line or an arc.

Amplitude2d

Defines the distance of the midpoint of a segment from a line drawn between the node points. The U and V values are 0 for a straight line.

Node2d

Defines the ending node point coordinates of a contour segment in the 2D U-V plane.

<Pillar>

Contains all definitions for a single pillar.

<Assembly>

Defines assembly information for the part. This attribute is optional.

<Trace>

Defines the length and end points of the pillar. Smart 3D retrieves the cross-section from the catalog. The center of web left load point is placed at the start point of the trace and generated along the trace at the specified inclination (orientation angle).

<Inclination>

Defines the orientation angle of the pillar web.

<Vector3D>

Defines the inclination vectors at a node point on <Trace>. If two values of <Vector3D> are provided for <Inclination>, then the orientation angles are applied at the pillar ends. If more than two values of <Vector3D> are provided, then the orientation angles are applied at each node of the trace.

U

Defines a value along the U-axis of the local coordinate system.

V

Defines a value along the V-axis of the local coordinate system.

W

Defines a value along the W-axis of the local coordinate system.

<Web>

Defines the web of the pillar.

<Flange1>

Defines the top flange of the pillar.

<Flange2>

Defines the bottom flange of the pillar.

If the XML cross-section parameters (such as height, width, and web thickness) do not match the mapped Smart 3D cross-section, then web and flange contours are ignored by Smart 3D. For more information, see <BarSection> in Reference Data XML Tags.

MaterialDirection

Defines the thickness direction for a web, or the flange direction for a flange.
