STEP 1. Review model issues:

Use the preset "Scan results" to review the remarks in the model. Remove parts that are not validated and update them in your engineering software, use the Add button to add the updated parts.

Scan result remarks:

Remark description


Error type

Incompatible part

Evaluate part. Geometry can be replaced with ''Remove'' and ''Add'' functionality. Or geometry can remain in the model as reference objects

Part error

Plate does not look like a plate

Can be processed as a profile object

Plate error

Plate inconsistent thickness

Make sure the thickness offset is constant

Plate error

Plate unsupported thickness

Make sure plates have a thickness of 1mm or multiplied by 1mm

Plate error

Plate seems kinked

Bend plates need to be modeled with a radius

Rule of thumb for 90° bend:

  • Aluminium;

    Ri = 3 x plate thickness

  • Steel:

    Ri = 1 x plate thickness

Plate error

Plate unable to validate bevels

Onepush can recognize bevels on planar plates without holes. For any other plate part remove the bevel from the 3D object and add the code manually in the viewer

Plate error

Profile not valid

Onepush support will force the missing profile type

Profile error

Profile unrecognized type

Onepush support will force the missing profile type

Profile error

STEP 2. Customize

You can use the presets and the navigator tree to add all necessary data to the model. When a preset is selected:

  • the Navigator is set to specific dedicated groups

  • the parts are Colorize accordingly

  • the Info panel is set up with the corresponding data


STEP 2.1 Part detail: Choose plates, profiles, and markers. Choose materials and add comments

STEP 2.2 Sorting: All data used for logistics, such as builder, assemblies, and departments

STEP 2.3 Welding: Setup structure types and custom weld patterns on part level, more info here

STEP 2.4 Plate details: Review marking sides and choose parts that need to mark on both sides

STEP 2.5 Profile details: Review all profile material at once

STEP 2.6 Bevels: Setup bevel and chamfer codes, on multiple edges and parts

STEP 2.7 Overlength: Add overlength, on multiple edges and parts

STEP 2.8 Forming: This preset filters out all planar parts. This makes it easy to choose which parts need to be formed and need a forming mold

The model is ready for production when all necessary data is added in the presets described above.

Navigate to "Model quote" in the menu bar to start the production of the building package.
