Thickness of Material

    • Mikey Dowling

      I have created this part in Ansys Workbench as a 2D axisymmetric problem. It has deformed in the way I want it. However, I want to get the thickness along the length of the shape every 5mm after it has been created by my simulation. Can anyone explain step by step how to measure the thickness of the part every 5mm along the length of the material? it is 0.7mm thick before any load has been applied to it. It is a deep drawing simulation. Thank You

      Link Solution to Model for any structural system or a Mechanical Model. Update/Refresh cells as required and set the Analysis Type to 2D on the downstream Model cell:

      In the downstream Mechanical session, turn on "Home [ribbon] > Selection Information." Use node selection filter, and hold Ctrl to select a couple nodes:
