In ANSYS Mechanical, the default cross section mesh for beams with circular cross section is 8 divisions along the circumference and 2 divisions along the radius as shown below :March 29, 2022 at 12:51 pmRahul KumbharAnsys EmployeeI assume you are okay using APDL commands In Mechanical. You can insert command object under the line geometry and add the coomands to change the secdata.
March 29, 2022 at 12:55 pmTomPhemmySubscriberthank you for this information. I have noticed that this works. But why does ANSYS Mechanical not render the new section like APDL does?
March 29, 2022 at 12:58 pmRahul KumbharAnsys EmployeeThe reason is these commands are executed while solving in background not in GUI.
