Modification of the geometry in Mechanical


    • Emperor
      Hello to all, 
      Let's imagine, we have a body of this shape. For some reason, we can't modify the geometry in DesiignModeler. Is it possible to introduce apdl commands in geometry in order to cut the body directly in mechanical ( from 1 to 2 )

      Try editing the geometry in SpaceClaim. You cannot edit the geometry in Mechanical.

      Hi @georgesbrivaelb See the Mechanical Help on "Virtual Topology".  We can't change the shape i.e. cut the body into two bodies.  But we can cut faces on the body (Virtual Split Face) by two vertices.  So if you need to split that face only for meshing or loading, then VT may be the way to go.


      p.s. right-click the Model object and VT should be a choice to insert to the tree.
