Anistotropic orientation rotation

    • PureInsanity

      I am trying to work with Anisotropic material at different crystallogrrphic orientations, like [100], [010], [111], etc. I would like to figure out how I can rotate this orientation in such directions if not any direction. As far as I understand in Gen 0 code, you can set angles and play around with material properties to achieve this. How would I usually do this in ANSYS mechanical or Workbench?

      Looks like you asking how you can rotate the material and keep the default element orientation.  We don't have a tool to do that. 

      You can, however, set an element coordinate system by defining a global x/y/z aniso material and rotate the element cs's. 

      Refer to the help on how you can do that:
