Arc types


In a rigiedit operation, you may be required to specify a particular arc type (through the Arc Type palette) or a set of arc types (through the Arc Set popup menu in the Settings dialog).

Most arc types are domain-specific; following is a description of the domain-independent arc types that arise when producing a subsystem containment hierarchy.

The level and composite arc types are automatically added if not present in the loaded domain model.

tex2html_wrap_inline5032 Technical: Multiple types of level and composite arcs are supported through RCL commands. Essentially, any arc type can become the current level or composite arc type. By default, the current level and composite arc types are the ones named, respectively, level and composite.
