After drawing explode in Advance Steel 2015 Detail frame is on layer 0. I can not find settings for Detail frame in Drawing explode options. Where can I set the layer? Or where can I turn off explode Detail frame.

Hello Mr. Palfy!

I suppose you mean the page frame, which is defined inside the prototype drawing as a block "HYPERSTEELPAGEFRAME". If using drawing exploding from document  manager, this block is not exploded and it gets layer "0". You can explode it additionally and after this, it will keep original layers as defined inside the block. There is no extra setting for page frame layer after exploding drawing.

No, I mean the green frame around the detail - ASTDETAILFASTDATA  on layer DetailFrame. After explode the frame is on layer 0.

Can you attach your AstorSettings.mdb (in zip or rar) to check? I can not reproduce your issue - always after exploding th green frame disappears (I changed default for the green frame visibility, but it took no effect).

I send AstorSettings and AstorAddIn, where is the table ExplodeSettings.

The appearance of green frames in exploded drawings is controlled by a default from AstorSettings database, table Default_INT:


* If the value is set to 1, the green frames / borders of details are kept in exploded drawings

* If the value is set to 0, the green frames / borders of details are deleted in exploded drawings

To switch OFF the green frames in exploded detail, please set the value to 0 for this default.

Please be aware that you have to set the value directly in the database, not through Management Tools / Defaults page.

Best regards
