Component "Plate Cut"

You can use the "Plate Cut" component to cut plates (for example, gusset plates, fin plates, and so on). There are various cutting methods available:

  • Plane: The cut is performed on the closest surface to the reference plate.
  • Surface: Only the intersecting parts of plates are cut.
  • Bounding Box: The outermost dimension consisting of width and height is cut out of the plate as a rectangle.
  • Convex Envelope: The outer hull of the cross-section is used for the plate cut. If there are fillets at the corner nodes of the cross-section, the cut is adapted to them.
