Syntax to set the Weld Symbol

SETTEXT([Top],[Left],[SymbolName],[Right],[Stagger],[ContourIndexNumber])

Where

Top is True to place the Weld information above the horizontal line. False to place it below the line.

Left is the value to display to the left of the weld symbol

SymbolName is the name of the symbol to use (see chart below)

Right is the value to display to the right of the weld symbol

Stagger is the value to display to the right of the stagger

ContourIndexNumber is the index number of the contour to display (see chart below)

The format is required to be given as a string value, see examples below.

RuleMeaning
"SetText(True , 5 , <WELD-BUSV> , , , 3 )"Sets the weld information above the horizontal line, a value of 5 placed to the left of the symbol, uses the Single V Butt symbol and has a convex contour.
"SetText(False," & DWVariableWeldSize & "," & DWVariableWeldSymbol & ", ,2 )"Sets the weld information below the horizontal line, a value calculated by the variable DWVariableWeldSize placed to the left of the symbol, uses the symbol calculated by the variable DWVariableWeldSymbol and has a flat contour.

Syntax to set Symmetric

SETSYMMETRIC([Symmetric])

Where Symmetric is the index number for the symmetric value (see chart below)

DescriptionIndex Number
Symbol is symmetric about the symbol line 1
Symbol not symmetric and the dashed identification line above symbol line2
Symbol not symmetric and the dashed identification line below symbol line3
RuleMeaning
"SetSymmetric (2)"Sets the symbol to one side of the symbol line and the dashed identification line above.
"SetSymmetric (" & DWVariableSymmetric & ")"Sets the symbol and the dashed identification line to a value calculated by variable DWVariableSymmetric.

Syntax to set Stagger

SETSTAGGER([Stagger])

Where Stagger is True for a staggered weld, False if not.

RuleMeaning
"SetStagger(True)"Includes the stagger symbol in the weld symbol
"SetStagger(" & DWVariableStagger & ")"Sets the stagger symbol to the value calculated by the variable DWVariableStagger

Syntax to set Peripheral

SETPERIPHERAL([Peripheral])

Where Peripheral is True if weld is peripheral, False if not

RuleMeaning
"SetPeripheral(True)"Includes the peripheral symbol in the weld symbol
"SetPeripheral(" & DWVariablePeripheral & ")"Sets the peripheral symbol to the value calculated by the variable DWVariablePeripheral

Syntax to set Field Weld

SETFIELDWELD([FieldWeld])

Where FieldWeld is one of the following numbers

FieldWeld NumberDescription
1None
2Field Weld Up
3Field Weld Down

Example

RuleMeaning
"SetFieldWeld(2)"Places the Field Weld symbol above the weld symbol reference line.
"SetFieldWeld(" & DWVariableFieldWeld & ")"Places the Field Weld symbol below the weld symbol reference line when the result of the variable FieldWeld is 3.

Syntax to set Process

SETPROCESS([EnableProcess],[Text],[Reference])

Where EnableProcess is TRUE to enable the process text or FALSE to disable the process text.

Text is the text to display.

Reference is TRUE to include the text within a reference box or FALSE to not include the reference box.

RuleMeaning

"SetProcess(True , See Drg. 1234/W01 , True)"

Includes the process note "See Drg. 1234/W01" with a reference box at the tail of the weld symbol reference line.

"SetProcess(True , " & DWVariablePNote & ", False)"

Includes the process note with the contents of the variable PNote, without a reference box at the tail of the weld symbol reference line.

Syntax to set the Weld Symbol, Symmetric, Stagger, Peripheral, FieldWeld and Process

RuleMeaning
"SetText(True,5, <WELD-BUSV>,,,3) | SetSymmetric(2) | SetStagger(True) | SetPeripheral(True) | SetFieldWeld(2) | SetProcess(True , See Drg. 1234/W01 , True )"

Sets the weld information above the horizontal line, a value of 5 placed to the left of the symbol, uses the Single V Butt symbol and has a convex contour. Sets the symbol to one side of the symbol line and the dashed identification line above. Includes the stagger symbol in the weld symbol. Includes the peripheral symbol in the weld symbol and the Field Weld symbol above the reference line. Includes the process note "See Drg. 1234/W01" with a reference box at the tail of the weld symbol reference line.
