Dynamic properties are custom properties that the user can assign to Parabuild objects.
This allows additional properties to be created to supplement the properties already offered by Parabuild.
Additional properties can be created using the Global settings dialog window. All properties shown here are also available and adaptable in the Properties panel. Every dynamic property can also be activated as a column in the parts list (also on workshop drawings).
Name:- Click the button 'New' to add a new property. The name may be edited to suit.
Type:- Is the determined value of the property. From the drop-down menus select either:
Decimal number - e.g. 00
Comma delimited number - e.g. 00.0
Text - e.g. Stock No. 5
Combination-text - This can be used to contain a fixed number of predetermined texts. These texts should be entered in the last column
Plates:- Tick the checkbox to apply the property to plates
Members:- Tick the checkbox to apply the property to members
Structures:- Tick the checkbox to apply the property to structures
Bolts:- Tick the checkbox to apply the property to bolts
Combination text:- The texts should be separated with a comma. E.g. “steel,concrete,aluminum” will allow you to make a selection of these three materials.
