I've created a frame in space claim using beam profiles. When the frame is brought into mechanical, all beams with same profile are combined together under a single body. How do you prevent the grouping?February 9, 2022 at 9:05 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberDon't use Shared Topology.
February 9, 2022 at 9:22 pmncoonanSubscriberThanks for the quick response! I tried moving all the beams in space claim to a new component that appears to have a shared topology set as 'none'. However same grouping still occurs in mechanical. 8 of 10 beams are grouped under a single body in mechanical.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated!
ThanksFebruary 9, 2022 at 9:29 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberPut each beam in its own Component.

February 10, 2022 at 1:43 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberIn another discussion, they wanted to insert a joint between two beams, so they wanted the beams to not be connected so there was a separate node at the end of each beam and the adjacent beam. That way, a joint could be added to go between the two nodes.
The solution I came up with in the other discussion was to go back to SpaceClaim, add a small sphere at each line intersection and trim the lines back to the sphere. That forces the lines to not share the same end point.
What is the problem that is created for you when all the beams are in one body?
