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 faces can be manually selected, or an automatic mode allows you to set a thickness range and then automatically detect matching face pairs. Along with the basic name property, there are six properties for defining a Mid-Surface via manual selection, and four additional properties for automatic detection. Starting in release 12.1, the output bodies are grouped into parts based on the original bodies they came from.

Mid-Surface topics:

Basic Properties
Automatic Detection Properties
Mid-Surface Context Menu Options

In this tutorial you will learn how to use Mid-Surface in ANSYS DesignModeler. This tool allows the creation of Surface bodies that are midway between existing Solid body faces.
