How to edit the shape of a plate with Plate editor

IDEA Connection offers a very simple and easy way to edit plates that are part of the connection (stiffeners, wideners, etc.):

We just need to select a manufacturing operation with a required plate and launch Editor from the property window.


Just click on one of the operations and enter the properties that you want. As you can see in the example below. Click Apply to see the changes in the model right away.
