Shop Bolt Report (data from 3D model)
Tool summary :
- Reports, on each line, the quantity of shop bolts of a particular type & length that are needed to fabricate all members assigned a particular piecemark.
- All members in the 3D model that have shop bolts are included in the report.
- Shown below is a sample page from a Shop Bolt Report .
Shop bolt quantities are reported per all members in each piecemark. See columns on the report for an explanation of each of the columns that appear on this report. Also on this page are step-by-step instructions

Columns on the report (also see the example ) :
|Report writer links are based on the data source fields for the default Shop Bolt Report used in the Report Writer , which you can Open in the reports/SDS2 folder.|
Line: The number of the line in this report that is assigned to this group of shop bolts described in the line. All shop bolts in a line are the same length and diameter and fasten to the total quantity of members identified by the one piecemark in that same line.
Piecemark: The piecemark ( member piecemark ) of the member(s) that this group of shop bolts are to be attached to in the shop.
Report Writer: Member.Piecemark
Count: The total number of shop bolts on all members that share the particular piecemark reported in this line. In other words, this is the total quantity of bolts needed to fasten connections to the total quantity of the particular member in the shop. If, for example, the piecemark on this line is for three members, each of which has four bolts that fasten submaterials to that member in the shop, then the count reported here is 12.
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 the setup option " 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 shop 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 shop bolt.

Report Writer: MemberMaterial.Bolt.PrimaryHeadWasher.TypeDescription
Report Writer: MemberMaterial.Bolt.SecondaryHeadWasher.TypeDescription
Nut Washer: The number of washers under the nut of the shop 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 shop bolt.

How to output a Shop Bolt Report :
A Shop Bolt Report may be used to evaluate how many bolts of what type are needed to fabricate all members that have a particular piecemark.
1 . Before output of this report:
1b (optional) : If you want only 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 '.
2 . Use any one (1) of the following methods to begin printing this report:
Method 1 : Home > Reports > System Reports > Shop Bolts > Shop Bolt Report .
Method 2 : Click the Shop Bolt Report 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 .
Alternative 1 : Press " OK " to output the report. Go to step 4.
Alternative 2 : Press " Cancel " to end this operation without generating the report. Do not continue.
4 . The Shop Bolt Report is output to the device/ location that you designated.
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 ).
