Advanced Setup (Element Identification and Mark)

Plates/Rim Joists/Girders


Common Settings


  • Print Plate Mark (x) on (x) Side of Frame - controls activation and location of the Mark, configured in the Mark tab. Unticking results in no mark being printed on the element. Once ticked, you can also choose on which side of the element Mark should be printed on in relation to how they are placed on the table:

    • Left - side facing the table (BVX reference side 3).

    • Right - side perpendicular to the side facing the table (BVX reference side 1).

    • Inner - side facing the fence (BVX reference side 4).

    • Outer (default) - perpendicular to the side facing the fence (BVX reference side 2).


  • Print Plate Position Mark (x) on Connected Element (x) Side of Frame - controls activation and location of Position Mark, configured in Position Mark tab. Unticking results in no mark being printed. Once ticked, the option will print the mark of the plate elements onto other connected elements. You can also choose which side of the element Mark should be printed on in relation to how they are placed on the table:

    • Left - side facing the table (BVX reference side 3).

    • Right - side perpendicular to the side facing the table (BVX reference side 1).

    • Inner - side facing the fence (BVX reference side 4).

    • Outer (default) - perpendicular to the side facing the fence (BVX reference side 2).

    • Connected - line will be places on connected element on the side where two elements meet.

    The marks will be aligned with the edge closer to where the connected element is.

Currently only Outer option is functioning correctly. Other options will still result in Outer option being chosen. Please contact our support for more info. No position marks will be placed if Width Orientation is chosen to be Fence Side in Export Settings.

Mark


Here are the options to help you configure mark by combining different parameters together:

  • Available Parameters ( 1 ) - lets you choose available valid parameters to form your mark from.


  • Mark = ( 2 ) - here you can see parameters currently selected to be used to combine mark from.

    • Parameter Name - shows parameter name for reference.

    • Prefix - here you can enter desired prefix to be used before selected parameter value.

    • Suffix - here you can enter desired suffix to be used after selected parameter value.


  • Add/Remove ( 3 ) - these buttons lets you add or remove selected parameters from either table.


  • Up/Down ( 4 ) - these buttons lets you move parameters in Mark = table to reorder them.


Marking Text Settings - here are the options to control the size and position of marks on the element. Choices made will fill parameter values for TextOutput processing:

  • Text Size - lets you choose the desired text size. Sizes are predetermined according to the BVX format specification. Check with your machine provider if it's the same for your equipment. If the chosen text size is bigger than the area mark will be printed at, your machine will adjust it automatically.
