is it possible to parameterize the thickness of a shell? I can't find the button for this action.February 16, 2022 at 12:34 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberInstead of a solid model, try a Midsurface model. On the Prepare tab is the Midsurface Tool. Use that. Now you have a surface model to send to Mechanical for meshing. You will get shell elements instead of solid elements. Now it is very simple to change the thickness of the shell elements, or turn the thickness into a Parameter. The advantage is Mechanical does not need to go back to SpaceClaim to get new geometry and mesh it, which slows down running many different thickness values.
