Use the button to create an extruded feature. The active sketch is the default input but can be changed by selecting the desired sketch, a plane from face (boundary used) or Named Selection features of Point features in the Tree Outline. Geometric entities such as faces, edges, vertices or point feature points can also be selected as input for the Extrusion feature.
You can select either a sketch or a plane or combination of number of named selection features, point features and/or geometry entities as input geometry. If the input geometry is other than sketch or plane, then a Direction Vector must be defined, and will be used for extruding all entities specified. Extrude can use faces (its edges are actually used), edges, surface bodies (treated like faces), line bodies (treated like edges) as input geometric entities as well as from named selections. Point feature points and vertices can also be selected as input geometry.
If the input geometry contains closed sets of edges and/or faces, only the closed sets of edges and/or faces will be used for extrusion. If there are no closed sets of edges and/or faces, then only open sets of edges will be used for extrusion. Vertices and point feature points will be used when nothing else is selected for extrusion.
The Details View is used to set the Extrude depth, direction vector, direction, direction type and modeling operation (Add, Cut, Slice, Imprint, or Add Frozen). When point profiles are to be extruded only the Add Material and Add Frozen options are available. Clicking Generate completes the feature creation and updates the model.
In this first tutorial, you will learn to use basic tools (Revolve, Extrude, Sweep and Bled/Loft) using Ansys DesignModeler.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to simulate a Heatsink using Ansys Fluent. In this first video, you will see how to create the geometry and the mesh using DesignModeler, Ansys Meshing and Ansys Fluent.
A tetradecahedron is a polyhedron with 14 faces. There are numerous topologically distinct forms of a tetradecahedron, with many constructible entirely with regular polygon faces.
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 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).
Some import types (ACIS and AutoCAD) allow you to specify the units of the imported model. Before clicking Generate, you may be able to change the model units from the Details View, depending on the type of import. Note that some model types store their units, so no Model Units property will appear when importing them.
Use the Open command to open files created in any supported format. Use the Save As command to export parts, assemblies, drawing sheets, and 3D markups to formats read by other applications. Your license type determines which of these actions are supported.
