With structure types in Onepush a building package can be enriched with custom weld patterns. This saves a lot of time marking the welds by hand with a sharpie.

Below you find a matrix in which the pattern output of all combinations of the 3 structure types are described.

It is possible to setup a custom weld pattern for individual parts. Select the parts and add a weld pattern code under ''Weldmarking Pattern'' in the editor.

Enter ''full'' in the data field for a full welded pattern of that particular part.

Parts can pull all weld markings to itself. Select ''yes'' if this is necessary.

Primary crossing full distance

The Onepush weld marking algoritm finds so called ''primary crossing'' points in a construction. In the radius where two primary construction members cross all welds will be marked with a full pattern. This radius can be setup with a custom value in the model settings at the summary page of your model.

The standard primary crossing full distance is R150mm.
