Group/lock the 2D sketch in Ansys Designmodeller

    • sagar.gupta.satrasala


      Is there an option in design modeller to group the 2d sketch and lock it, so that the sketch can be moved together and stays the same way irrespective of any changes made. I want to group and lock the sketch below,

      You can give dimensions to all edges. 

      Please go through help manual for more details

      Yes, I already gave the dimensions. I want to somehow lock the sketch to body. I have cylindrical body and this sketch creates a solid inside that body like the picture below,

      I want to lock this beacuse I perform buckling analysis to this cylindrical body when it is predeformed (with a bent bow like shape) and I have to move this sketch everytime I move the cylindrical body to a bent shape. You can see that in the picture below,

      I am condusting a parametric study for this and I parametrized the movement in x-direction. So, if I can let this sketch move along with the cyclindrical body then I can conduct a better parametric study.

      If anyone could help me with this, I would be very grateful!!
