default constrained block thickness

Unread post by OMG » Mon Jan 06, 2020 2:59 pm

Hello

Is there a way to change the initial value of the constrained block thickness? In my version it starts with 19mm but we usually work with 18mm thick panels and sometimes I forget to modify this.

Thank you

Hello

yes it is.
$TOPCONFIG\V6XX\topzwoo.cfg
D_SH_BLOCK_CONSTRAINT_THICKNESS 0.016

0.016 is in meters. If it doesn't work, try to add it some other cfg file.

By the way, I am using always parametric thickness for elements. Never know, when someone want to replace it for some other material and then it's painful to change all thicknesses part by part.

Thank you

I will try your solution right now.

Later edit:

It worked but I had to add your line in top.cfg and not in topzwoo.cfg
Btw, is there an official documentation for this kind of settings?

There is no documentation about those settings. I got this solution from my reseller, who is working with TopSolid Wood around 15y and they have 200+ users.
One place what You can do is check this file: top_ex.cfg. It's in several languages and You can take some good commands to Your cfg file. Just read it row by row.
Years ago in one day I just grab some beers and went through ALL cfg files. Also some txt files and other types, which were opened with notepad++.
I got tons of hidden information.
Working with TopSolid Wood needs to think uncommonly :) I am using lot of small things, which are not shown in any document and I found those solutions during hardcore testing and trying.

Enjoy! :)
