Radius dimension for arc operations on worktop edges.
Notification level: ⚠
This rule checks the radius dimension for arc operations created on the worktop in order to prevent the user from creating an invalid kitchen.
It is triggered if the radius dimension of an arc operation of a worktop edge is less than the chosen radius in the worktop configuration. The
minDistance overload can also be used to overload the value from the worktop configuration. If
minDistance is provided, the R dimension is compared to the biggest value between the worktop configuration and
The application warns to modify the radius dimension to obey the minimum value.
The radius dimension for arc operations created on the worktop must always be greater than the chosen value for the overload.
The radius dimension for arc operations must satisfy the below equation:
radius ≥ edge length/2 ≥ overload value
This information is mandatory in order to have a check on this kind of worktop cut.
|If this optional parameter is provided, the R dimension is compared to the biggest value between the worktop configuration and
minDistance. If not provided, the R dimension only compared to the worktop configuration. Optional.
Case 1 – Application requirements
Due to geometric constraint, the minimum radius for creation of an arc in the application must be greater than or equal to half of edge length.
The rule is triggered when a value less than
edge length/2 is entered and informs the user to modify the radius dimension.
An animation is displayed to guide the user through the changes.
The user changes the radius with a value greater than or equal to 114 mm (according to
However, after refreshing the check on the Help center, there is still an error for this case. Actually, this is not sufficient to satisfy the triggered rule as mentioned below in case 2.
Case 2 – Manufacturer's requirements
Due to manufacturer's constraint, the minimum radius for creation of an arc by the manufacturer must be greater than or equal to the chosen dimension value.
The rule is triggered when a value less than the chosen dimension value is entered, and the application warns the user to modify the radius dimension of the arc. An animation is displayed to guide the user through the changes.
The user changes the dimension of the arc radius with a value greater than or equal to 150 mm (the overload value in this example), and the design is finally error free.
Note: The rule will be triggered for the maximum value considering overload value and product operation value.
