Design Modeler

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). You can make a model’s thickness in one of three directions of offset:

ANSYS Meshing

ANSYS MESHING – Pinch

The Pinch feature lets you remove small features (such as short edges and narrow regions) at the mesh level in order to generate better quality elements around those features. The Pinch feature provides an alternative to Virtual Topology,

Design Modeler

Design Modeler – Connect

The Connect feature can be used after the Share Topology feature to selectively share faces between two bodies of a multibody part. You will need to specify a tolerance and ANSYS DesignModeler will connect two faces into one face if the faces lie within the specified tolerance.

ANSYS ICEM CFD

ANSYS ICEM CFD – Extrude Mesh

The Extrude Mesh option allows you to create elements of one type from selected elements of a lower dimension along a defined direction. This option is generally used to create a volume mesh of non-varying cross-section from a 2D mesh profile.
