Banding.....
SoftPlan Version:
2016 Plus

Hi folks.....

I'm trying to generate a custom banding profile. I drew the profile with line, arc, etc. Went to system library and drew a box around it. Then clicked it to generate the preview and okayed out. Then to banding and it's not there. Is there another step to this that I have overlooked ?  In system and drawing libraries it shows up fine. In windows explorer it also shows up....I've had problems with symbols before, some may recall, in which case this may be related.

Ultimately.....is this the proper process to develop a new banding profile and solid to be actually applied ?

Thanks for any pointers.

After you have created the profile you need to assign it to a Banding Option. Select System Options⇒Finishing Options⇒Banding Options. Select an unused option and give it a new name. Assign the profile and a Material to the banding. You should now be able to add the new banding to your drawing.
