The Connect feature may be used to align and possibly join a set of vertices, edges or faces. The alignment takes the form of a stretching and aligning of existing geometry.
Entities may be connected that are coincident to within a tolerance that is specified as a property of the feature. Vertices, edges or faces may be selected through the Apply/Cancel button property. It is possible to select entities for which subsets are determined to be coincident to within the user-specified tolerance. When this is the case, the program will identify and connect the entities in each of the subsets.
Starting from Release 15.0, the Connect feature can be used after the Share Topology feature to selectively share faces between bodies. See Selective Shared Topology: Using Connect after Share Topology for more details.
In this tutorial you will learn how to use Connect tool in Ansys DesignModeler.
Autodesk Inventor is a comprehensive and flexible set of software for 3D mechanical design, simulation, tooling creation, and design communication.
By default, System Coupling’s beta features are not activated. When beta features are activated, the corresponding settings are added to the data model and are available for use.
The Mid-Surface feature allows the creation of Surface bodies that are midway between existing Solid body faces. The resulting surface body/bodies have a Thickness property which defines the “thickness” that surface body represents.
The Symmetry feature is a tool used to define a symmetry model. The feature takes either all the bodies or selected bodies of the model as input and accepts up to three symmetry planes. You can choose either full or partial models to work with. If a full model is used, the selected symmetry planes will slice off the model and only a portion of the model will be retained.
The Enclosure feature is a tool used to enclose the bodies of a model so that the material enclosing the bodies can be assigned to something such as a gas or fluid in the ANSYS Mechanical application.
The ANSYS DesignModeler application is designed to be used as a geometry editor of existing CAD models. The ANSYS DesignModeler application is a parametric feature-based solid modeler designed so that you can intuitively and quickly begin drawing 2D sketches, modeling 3D parts, or uploading 3D CAD models for engineering analysis preprocessing.
The Offset function allows you to create a set of lines and arcs that are offset by an equal distance from an existing set of “straight” lines and “circular” arcs. The original set of lines and arcs must be connected in a simple end-to-end fashion and can form either an open or closed profile.
The Slice feature improves the usability of ANSYS DesignModeler as a tool to produce sweepable bodies for hex meshing and to assign different cross sections in a line body.
