Parts used in the Advance model and in the structured BOMs or drawings that cannot be created from other Advance objects are Special Parts.
They must be designed in separate DWGs as solids and created as Advance objects with the Advance special part tool that is on the Tools> tools palette.
The insertion point must correspond with the origin of the file that it was created in or to the UCS origin being 0,0,0.
Create the special part in a separate DWG and save it with a name that will appear on the BOM
Go back to the model and select Tools> tools >AdvanceSteel Special part icon
Select the point in the drawing where you want your block (Special part) inserted
Take notice of how your UCS is placed in the model drawing
Select OK when the warning dialog box appears
- Select the browse button and navigate to where you saved your drawing (Note: the special part should not be mad into a block)
- The special part is now inserted into your model at the point specified.
- To be able to view your special part on E Sheets use "All Cameras Overview" and adjust the dept.
Hope this helps Patrick
