Field Bolts Point to Point by Zone (data from 3D model)
Tool summary :
- Outputs a report that lists -- per bolt diameter / length / type and per framing situation and per zone -- nearly all field bolts in your entire 3D model.
- Only field bolts to existing members are excluded from the report. Framing situations for different zones are reported on different pages.
- The report's framing situation description consists of listing, under the " Piecemark " column, the two members that are to be field bolted.
- See, on this page, the example and columns on the report and the step-by-step instructions .

- Field bolts listed on which members ( Fabricator > Detailing > Bolt Detailing Settings > )
- Existing members (bolts on are excluded from this report)
- Bolt designation shown in reports ( Fabricator > Detailing > Bolt Detailing Settings > )

- Report viewer (provides options for output)
Shown below is part of a Field Bolt Point to Point by Zone Report . On this report, field bolts are listed separately for each framing situation, and each zone is listed on a separate page. All members in the 3D model that have field bolts are automatically included in the report. See columns on the report for an explanation of each of the columns that appear on this report.

Columns on the report (also see the example ) :
|Report writer links are based on the data source fields for the Report Writer's Field Bolt Point To Point By Zone , which you can Open in the reports/SDS2 file folder.|
Sequences and zones: When a member is assigned a sequence, it is also assigned to a zone. Many sequences may be assigned to one zone, but different zones cannot be assigned the same sequence. As a consequence of this, each physical member is in one sequence and in one zone. The Zone and Sequence setup table tells you which sequences are under which zones.
Report Writer: Member.ErectionZone
Line: The number of the line assigned to this group of field bolts. Each group of field bolts in a line is the same length and diameter and is associated with a distinct framing situation and zone. The zone is reported at the top of the page. Two lines are needed to describe most framing situations.
Piecemark: The piecemarks ( member piecemarks ) of the two members that fasten together at the construction site using the field bolts. Two piecemarks (on two sequential lines) describe most framing situations. The supported member is listed first if the setup option " Field bolts listed on... " is set to ' Supported '.
Report Writer: Member.Piecemark
Report Writer: MemberMaterial.Bolt.DiameterDimension
Type: The material grade of the bolts reported on this line. This column also includes the bolt type if ' Bolt Material & Type ' is selected for Home > Project Settings > Fabricator > Bolt Detailing Settings > " Bolt designation shown in reports ."
Report Writer: MemberMaterial.Bolt.BoltTypeDescription
Length: The distance from the inside of the bolt head to the end of the shaft. The program does not include the head thickness in its calculation of bolt length because head thickness may vary among bolt manufacturers.
Report Writer: MemberMaterial.Bolt.LengthDimension
Head Washer: The number of washers under the head of the field bolt and their type ( HD or PL or RPL or FL or BVL or DTI or HLS ). If this cell is left blank, then there is no washer under the head of the field bolt.

Nut Washer: The number of washers under the nut of the field bolt and their type ( HD or PL or RPL or FL or BVL or DTI or HLS ). If this cell is left blank, then there is no washer under the nut of the field bolt.

TC: Yes or No . If the bolts on this line are " Tension control " (TC), this cell reads ' Yes '. If the bolts are not TC bolts, the cell reads ' No '

How to output a Field Bolt Point to Point by Zone Report :
Generally field bolts are shipped loose to the construction site. A Field Bolt Point to Point by Zone Report may be used to determine how many bolts of what type will be needed to erect one end of a member in a particular zone at a construction site.
1 . Before output of this report:
1a (optional) : Changing the setup option " Field bolts listed on which members " changes whether the supported or supporting member is listed first for each framing situation described on the report. Be sure to " Process and Create Solids " all members if you change this setting.
1b (optional) : If you want the steel grade only to be listed in this report for the column " Type ," then set the setup option " Bolt designation shown in reports " to ' Bolt material only '.
1c : This report is compiled from the 3D model. When you Process & Create Solids , you effectively update the model for your current Job . You can then output a Field Bolt Point to Point by Zone Report that will be up to date.
2 . Use any one (1) of the following methods to begin output of this report:
Method 1 : Home > Reports > System Reports > Field Bolts > Field Bolts Point to Point by Zone .
Method 2 : Click the Field Bolts Point to Point by Zone icon, which is pictured above. The icon can be taken from the group named ' Reports ' and placed on a toolbar (classic) or the ribbon (lightning). Ribbon configuration is done using Customize Interface .
3 . The Output Configuration window opens. Press the button under the " Destination " heading if you want this particular report to be output to a device / location other than the default set per User and Site Options > Output > " Reports ."
Alternative 1 : Press " OK " to output the report as described in step 4.
Alternative 2 : Press " Cancel " to end this operation without generating the report. Do not continue.
4 . The Field Bolts Point to Point by Zone report is output.
Note: If you output the report to the report viewer (" Screen "), you can now review the report on screen, then optionally print it or output it to disk (see report viewer ).
