RelConnectsSurfaceEdge

Hinges on 2D member edge

A connection of two slabs (2D members) may be modelled as a fixed one or a hinge may be inserted to create a pinned connection. Three configurations of slab hinge are allowed: rigid, free, flexible. Under any configuration, all translations are fully transferred from one slab to the other. If there is no hinge, the connection is rigid.
This object is referring to the edge of StructuralSurfaceMember. Only for this object the indexing of edges starts with "0". All other objects are referencing with "1" based indexing.

uz
Enum
Free
Rigid
Flexible

Selects the coordinate system that is used to define the length of the hinge. Relative means without units. To define length of the hinges in meters input absolute
Origin
Enum
From start
From end
yes
Specifies the origin of the coordinate system used for the definition of the length of the hinge
Start point [m]
Double
value in meters for Coordinate definition = Absolute
0,0
value in percentage for Coordinate definition = Relative
0,0
yes
Defines the position of the start point of the hinge in relative or absolute coordinates
Units in meters [m]
End point [m]
Double
value in meters for Coordinate definition = Absolute
5,25
value in percentage for Coordinate definition = Relative
1,0
yes
Defines the position of the end point of the hinge in relative or absolute coordinates
Units in meters [m
Parent ID
String
67b35d84-3d04-47aa-aa4a-dc1263982320
no
Is filled for objects created be dividing curved geometry to series of straight line objects. Parent ID will ensure that curved edge is imported as straight parts to nonsupporting application, and back to original supporting application as curved geometry.
To ensure successful round trip of segmented objects and their related objects, Parent ID needs to be present in both directions.
