Save body from deformed shape

EmailFacebookGoogle+LinkedInTwitterShare

You can save the true deformed shape of a part or assembly resulting from running a static or nonlinear study. You can save the deformed geometry as a new configuration or a new document. Use the generated geometry for simulation or manufacturing purposes. This functionality works for solid, shell, and mixed meshes with solids and shells.

For linear static studies, you can use this functionality to control the shape of the deformed model. For example, consider a planar plate subjected to a uniform pressure p. If you save and manufacture the deformed shape of the plate under a uniform pressure -p, the plate will be planar when the pressure p is applied.
