Assigning labels

The Labels dialog is not specific to the joining process, but also used by other functions, e.g. to assign the property “sliding” to the contact line between a fixed region and a moving region, see Moving Regions. The procedure for assigning the label is the same.

In a Solidification and Quenching Furnace (SQF) the Sample Cartridge Assembly (SCA) contains one or more regions constituting the Liquid Metal Ring (LMR), which must have a fixed position inside the furnace. In the Labels dialog you define the LMR by labeling the region(s) and a contact line between cartridge and Furnace Insert (FI).

  1. Load the SQF sample cartridge assembly (SCA) *.crys file.

  2. Select Settings > Labels.

    The Labels dialog opens:

  3. Select all regions belonging to the LMR by pressing CTRL and left mouse button.

  4. Type LMR in the input field for regions or select the same word from the keywords list.

  5. Click on Apply and Close.

    or

    Click on OK to apply the changes and to close the dialog.

  6. Select File > Save.

  7. Load the SQF furnace insert *.crys file.

  8. Select Settings > Labels.

  9. Select the contact line by pressing the middle mouse button.

  10. Type contact in the input field for lines.

  11. Click on Apply and Close.

    or

    Click on OK to apply the changes and to close the dialog.

  12. Select File > Save.

The files are ready to be joined, see Joining cartridge and furnace insert.

Note

The joiner for SCA and FI recognizes only the keywords “contact” and “LMR”. If other labels are used, the joining process will fail!
