SmJunctionCreate creates a junction feature on hard edges (sharp edges between flange faces) and bends or curved hard edges between two bends (or lofts).
Accessing the Command
command bar: smjunctioncreate
menu bar: Sheet Metal | Create Junction
toolbar: Sheet Metal | Create Junction
ribbon: Sheet Metal | Modify | Create Junction
Quad cursor menu: Sheet Metal | Create Junction
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select hard edges or bends or flanges or 3D solids [Entire model] <Entire model>: (Select flanges, hard edges, bends or solids. You can also select "curved" edges between flanges and bends; between flanges and lofted bends; between two bends, or between two lofts.)
Entities in set: 1
Select hard edges or bends or flanges or 3D solids [Entire model] <Entire model>: (Select more items or right click.)
Analyzes the entire model to detect hard edges.
The "Heal coincident junction" setting controls how BricsCAD recognizes junction designs with coincident faces and how they are converted to regular junctions.
SmBendCreate - converts junctions and hard edges (sharp edges between flange faces) into bends.
SmDelete - removes a bend or a junction by restoring a hard edge between two flanges: removes a flange with all the bends adjacent to it. The adjacent flanges are extended up to a junction configuration and the flange is deleted. Removes miter by restoring the geometry cutaway by a feature.
SmDissolve - removes sheet metal data from the selected faces or entities.
SmFlangeConnect - closes gaps between two arbitrarily oriented flanges.
SmImprint - splits thickness faces of sheet metal parts with imprinted edges, according to adjacent flanges and bends.
SmJunctionSwitch - changes symmetrical junction features with overlapping faces.
SmReliefCreate - makes proper corner and bend reliefs. Corner reliefs are built on corners with three, or more, adjacent flanges. Bend reliefs are built on the start and end of a flange edge.
