Ansys DesignModeler – Connect

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.

Ansys DesignModeler – Thin/Surface

Ansys DesignModeler – Thin/Surface

The Thin/Surface feature allows you to convert solids into thin solids or surfaces. The feature can operate on both active and frozen bodies. Typically, you will select the faces to remove, and then specify a face offset that is greater than or equal to zero (>=0).

We share the same tutorial using ANSYS Fluent.

Ansys DesignModeler – Splice Material

Ansys DesignModeler – Splice Material

Slices bodies into multiple pieces. Active bodies in the Slice operation will be automatically frozen. This option is available when at least one body is present in the model.

Ansys DesignModeler – Edge Split

Ansys DesignModeler – Edge Split

The Split Edges feature allows for the splitting of edges (including Line body edges) into two or more pieces. The edges selected for the operation can come from either active or frozen bodies.

Ansys DesignModeler – Imprint Face

Ansys DesignModeler – Imprint Face

Similar to Slice, Imprint Faces imprints curves onto the faces of active bodies in the model. The bodies themselves are not split into multiple pieces. It is available whenever active bodies are present.

Ansys DesignModeler – Projection

Ansys DesignModeler – Projection

The Projection feature allows you to project points on edges/faces and edges on faces/bodies. This feature can be executed on both frozen and active bodies.
