Hello steelxpert

I just zoomed in to the center of the plane handle and selected the blue axis and dragged the plane arbitrarily by a small distance.

Alternatively, you can create a new plane along the center of thickness as mentioned below:

1. Click Results task.

2. Select any one face representing symmetry. See below snapshot.


3. Once selected, open any one of the contour result.

4. In Location field, go to Create option and click Plane. This will create a new plane along the selected face and the plane properties panel will also appear.

5. Scroll down at the bottom of plane properties and expand "Transformation" option.

6. Specify Magnitude as -0.05m (or positive value depending on which face was selected earlier) and Z value as 1. This will move the plane at the center of thickness.


7. Once done, open the contour result, select the newly created plane and evaluate.
