When you select the Create Panel command, you can define the surface qualities for the panels to be created.

To define Surface Qualities select the Style Manager\hsbcad Objects\hsbcad Surface Quality Style and assign grades to surface qualities.

IQ: Industrial Quality

You can add and name the surface qualities according to your needs.
Under the Definition tab, you can determine the value of the quality.
