changing the model in space claim and in the model

    • kaitova

       Hi, can you please tell if it is possible to modify the model position after space claim?

      I plan to use one model for 4 load cases, and for 2 of them it will have one position and for 2 others another position, I want to use one space claim model for all of them. Maybe it is possible to modify it in the model tab prior to ACP Pre? Thank you

      You can use Part Transform to change the position or orientation of a component in Mechanical. If you go to Model cell in J, then go to Geometry-->Right-click on Component (that you need to reposition) --> Transform Part. In the Details of Part Transform, you can specify the values in the Translate or Rotate cells. Then right-click on Transform in Tree Outline and click Transform. The part/component should move to the new position.

      Since systems K, L, M, N all have data transfer from the same cell in J, any change you make to J will reflect in all four systems. To do it in only two systems, I think you would need to Duplicate system J (right-click on cell 1 of J and choose Duplicate). Let's call this duplicate system P. Then you would link K and L to system J and link M and N to system P. You can Transform the part only in system P (not in J) and that way only system M and N will have the new configuration of the parts. 

      Hope this helps,
