Automidplane Tool In ANSYS DesignModeler
Modeling thin parts with solid elements usuy requires a large number of elements to achieve good results accuracy. Shell elements are better suited for these geometries. However, since CAD models are usuy built from solids, one needs to be able to abstract the mid-surface from the 3D bodies before using shell elements. This demo shows how DesignModeler helps in automaticy creating thin models by extracting the mid-surface from volume bodies and affecting the right thickness to each body before the simulation is performed.
