Question:How are joint objects automatically created on specific layers?
1. Configure the settings in the "ObjectLayerAssignment" table.
Open the Management Tools - Table editor.
Click the "MDB" icon and open the AstorBase.mdb database, and then open the "ObjectLayerAssignment" table.
Close your drawing and go to the 3D model.
|Key||A unique number|
|ModelRole||The model role given by the joint to the created object in the 3D model.|
|ObjectType||Type of object (e.g. Beams, Plates, etc.)|
|LayerName||Name of the layer created in the DWG file|
2. Activate the functionality.
Open the Management Tools - Defaults.
Go to the "Layer assignment" branch, and set the "Default layers used for AS objects based on object role" to "1".
Next time objects are created by a joint (e.g. cladding macro, portal frame macro, railings, etc.), these objects will be automatically placed on the layers according to the user configuration.
