Typically, the generation of a 3D feature consists of two steps:
|(a) Generate the feature bodies, and|
|(b) Merge the feature bodies with the model via Boolean operations.|
You can apply five different Boolean operations to the 3D Features:
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.
In this tutorial you will learn how to use Slice Material tool in ANSYS DesignModeler. This tool is widely used in 3D to create several bodies.
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.
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.
