Edit > Custom Component
This tool enables you to add a custom component to the female profile of the currently selected stripper area/region, provided this tool is marked as available in the current System Settings.
Edit bar controls
If this option is checked, then a preview of the dynamic stripping component is shown at the cursor as you move the mouse around the drawing before you click.
The option should be unchecked if you experience any performance issues, particularly on low specification machines.
If the current system settings define different Materials, then from the pulldown list select the material required; Impact will automatically attempt to select the correct material for you if the material variables for the layer are set.
If this option is checked, then a dynamic stripping component is placed relative to the restriction.
If the Place DSC option has been checked, then from the pulldown list select the dynamic stripping component setting if you wish to override the default as defined in the current system settings.
If the Place DSC option has been checked, and there is more than one component in the dynamic stripping component’s male component library, then from the pulldown list select the default component that should be used by the dynamic component setting if you wish to override the default as defined in the library.
Switch this option on to access the drop down list of available symbols (as defined in Options > Database Operation > Symbols > Nick Symbol Group). This allows you to select a different nick symbol for the restriction.
If the Place DSC option has been checked, and the default component is of Claw type, then check this option if you wish to place the left hand component, or leave it unchecked if you wish to place the right hand component.
If the Place DSC option has been checked, and the default component if of Claw, Male Knife or Fork type, then check this option if you wish the component to be automatically rotated to the side.
From the drop down list choose the required component. These are all defined in the Stripper System - Custom Components, where the order of the components in this list can be defined.
This option allows you to explicitly override the depth of the restriction as defined in the system settings.
This option allows you to override the inserted angle of the component.
You can make a temporary override to the System Settings currently being used by the Stripper Creator by changing the values shown in the Stripper System Settings form.
You can make a temporary override to the area helper settings currently being used by the Stripper Creator by changing the values shown in the Area Helper form. A defined area can then be displayed on the cursor to help gauge the size of any restrictions added.
If this option is checked, any editing of a selected component using the drag handles will allow changes to the angle of the component. Otherwise, the angle of the component remains fixed.
How to use the tool
Pick a point on the profile of the selected stripper/region to add a new component.
When editing a custom component, the Marker, as described in the Female Stripper Component setting page, can have its position edited interactively. This is done using the handle that is displayed and allows for either Depth Adjustment or Angle Adjustment.
Edit Depth - drag handle circled
Edit Angle - drag handle circled
If both options have been enabled in the Female Stripper Component then the default handle displayed is the Edit Angle handle. Press the Shift key to switch to the Edit Depth handle.
In either case, click and drag the handle to the required location.
