Design Modeler – Enclosure

Source: Enclosure

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 feature takes either all the bodies or selected bodies of the model as input, creates a frozen enclosure body around those bodies, and then cuts the bodies out of the enclosure.

The Enclosure feature supports symmetry models when the shape of enclosures is a box or a cylinder. A symmetry model may contain up to three symmetry planes. You can choose either full or partial models to be included in the enclosure. If a full model is used, symmetry planes will slice off the Enclosure feature and only a portion of the enclosure will be retained.
