2 point path in-between 2 bodies

    • jonsys

      I want to define a 2 point path which I am going to use to get some stress output. The path will be located exactly between 2 bodies. 

      Let's say I want the stress output from the upper body. How do I select which body I want?

        This is a good question, and the answer can be found in this section of the manual.

      For each point in a path or in a surface, Mechanical chooses precisely one body from which to calculate the results. If multiple bodies are scoped, Mechanical calculates the results from the body with the highest identifier (typically the latest one in the geometry tree). No averaging is done of a path result across bodies.
