The context menu with the right mouse button the system tree provides some additional options.
•“Delete” deletes the shaft
•“Duplicate” duplicates the shaft. This is helpful if several similar shafts are needed in a gearbox
•“Mirror” mirrors the shaft geometry and positions od forces and supports. The orientation of forces and supports is not changed.
•“Export deflection” exports a *.csv file for the deflection of a shaft. The “result tables” in menu report also contains this information, but for all shafts instead of one only.
•“Change color” allows to change the color of a shaft.
•“Import geometry” allows an input of shaft geometry as 2D DXF or 3D STEP, see below for details
•“Export geometry” exports the shaft as 3D STEP or IGES. Gears and bearings are included on the export.
