Place Belt Component

Activates the place belt component command.

Review Symbol Files

Allows you to review symbol files for belt profiles. Select the belt profile within the Workspace Explorer to open the Review Dialog.

Select Belt Profile

Select the appropriate belt profile to place the components.

Sketch2D Control

Displays options for Sketch 2D where you can work with the belt components using Place Belt Components . See 2D Automation in Sketch 2D.

Finish

Places the belt components.

Update 3D

Updates the belt components in 3D environment with changes made in Sketch 2D.

Select Parent

Select the parent system into which the belt components will be placed.

Placement Mode

Select the appropriate method for handling belt components.

Add, Modify

Adds new objects in the model. Modifies existing objects in the model, but does not delete objects in the model.

Add, Modify, Delete

Adds new objects in the model. Modifies existing objects in the model, and deletes objects in the model.

Symbol File Name

Type a name for the symbol file.

Type of Belt Components

Select the appropriate component type. For example, select Equipment to place equipment type components such as idlers. You can place all components (equipment, modules and miscellaneous) by selecting the All option.

2D Sketcher Options

Some options listed below may not be applicable for the active command.

 Sketching Plane

Specifies the sketching plane. This is the first step in defining the object.

 Add Intersecting Item

Allows you to select objects that intersect the sketching plane in the 3D environment. You see the selected objects in Sketch 2D when you are drawing.

 Add Projection Item

Allows you to select objects that do not intersect the sketching plane in the 3D environment. The objects are projected onto the sketching plane, and you see the selected objects in Sketch 2D when you are drawing.

Sketch 2D

Opens Sketch 2D in which you can draw.

 Coincident Plane

Specifies that you want to sketch on the plane that you select.

 Offset from Plane

Specifies a sketching plane that is offset from a plane that you select. If you choose this option, you must define the offset distance.

 Angle from plane

Specifies a sketching plane that is at a specified angle from a plane that you select. If you choose this option, you must define an axis of rotation and the angle or slope.

 Plane by Point and Vector

Specifies the sketching plane using two points to define a vector normal to the sketching plane and a third point to define the sketching plane position along the vector.

 Plane by Three Points

Specifies the sketching plane using three points that you specify in the model.

Plane by Vectors Normal

Specifies the sketching plane as being normal to another plane that you select and having a rotation parallel to a vector that you define.

Offset lock

Locks the offset value, disabling updates of the offset value by mouse moves. This option is only available when you use the Offset from a Plane option.

Offset

Specify the offset distance for the sketching plane from the selected plane. You can specify the offset dynamically in graphics or by typing the distance. This option is only available when you use the Offset from a Plane option.

Angle

Specify the angle at which to place the sketching plane relative to the selected plane. You have to define the axis of rotation using two points before you can define the angle. This option is only available when you use the Angle from plane option.

Step

Specifies the angle step. The step is incremented by this value when the cursor is moved in the graphic view. This option is only available when you use the Angle from plane option.

Select Vector

Select the vector normal to the sketching plane. This option is only available when you use the Plane by Point and Vector option.

Define Point

Specifies the point along the vector at which to place the sketching plane. This option is only available when you use the Plane by Point and Vector option.

Define Point 1

Specifies the location of the first of three points that will define the sketching plane. This option is only available when you are using the Plane by Three Points option.

Define Point 2

Specifies the location of the second of three points that will define the sketching plane. This option is only available when you are using the Plane by Three Points option.

Define Point 3

Specifies the location of the third of three points that will define the sketching plane. This option is only available when you are using the Plane by Three Points option.
