Shaft Axis Deformation in Static Structural Simulation

      Hello everybody,


      I'm almost new here. Lately I was trying to see how much is the deformation of an external gear when a specific pressure acts on it.


      The problem is that I can see the deformation of the points on the surface or the deformation of the teeth edge, but I don't know how to display of the axis of the gear. 


      What I would like is generating an axis along the gear shaft and see how much is its deformation. 


       


      I added an image to point out what I would like. 


      Thank you in advance, 


      Federico

      Hello Frederico,


      Go into a Geometry editor (SpaceClaim or DesignModeler) and create two planes that go through the centerline axis. Use those planes to Slice the body into four parts. Use Shared Topology to get a single mesh without needing contact. In DesignModeler, pick the four bodies and Form New Part.  In SpaceClaim, go to the Workbench tab and click the Share button.


      Now you have a geometric edge on the centerline.



      Regards,
      Peter

      Thank you Peter,


      I really appreciate your answer. I believe that without your help I couldn't do it. 


      Thank you,
