Using Sectionnal views

Hi there !

I'm working on a dam study, and I have to work with a 3D model.

I would like to use a sectionnal view in order to determinate what behaviour is adopted by some particullar points on my model.

Is there a way to display an adaptive scale of constrains only focused on the part I chose to displaye on the interface ?

Thanks.

Regards.

I'm going to go ahead and ask for more information.

 

What type of analysis?

please clarify this sentence:

"Is there a way to display an adaptive scale of constrains only focused on the part I chose to displaye on the interface ?"

I'm doing a static and linear analysis to check the stability of my structure (displacements and constraints).

First, I would like to make disappear singularities due to the modelisation, in order to focus on the rest of the structure.


Secondly, when I use sectionnal view to check constraints in my different elements, the constraint scale does'nt automatically adapt to the part wich is still displayed on the graphic interface.

 

I hope it clarifies my original answer.

If I understand your needs, I suspect we need to adjust the legend.
Once you determine the range at which the singularities occur, you can adjust you legend scale to display outside that range.

Results Pallete -> Ribbon-> Results Inquiry tab -> [Can't remember which Panel name, but it is in the middle area]
Pick Legend bar icon.
A dialog will appear allowing you to adjust the range of your scale. Just bump the lower or upper range to avoid the singularities. Once finished, the scale will update accordingly.

Is this what you were trying to achieve?
Let us know.

Excellent, I completly missed that possibility ! Thank you for this piece of advice

My original problem was to find a way to adapt systematically the constaints spectrum (on the palette) in order to have the best accuracy on the part I chose to display with the sectionnal view.

For instance, when you hide some components on a model, the scale is automatically ajusted for the component you chose to display. I would like to do the same stuff, but for pieces of components you isolate whith sectionnal views.

Unfortunately there is no way to do this automatically, or adaptively.

I believe the scale will adjust when component visibility is turned off, which is helpful.

However nothing is available to scale in relationship to the displayed view area (cross sections, etc)

 

You could post your idea in the Simulation Mechanical Idea Station forum.

Here's the link.

2014 has an option for parts view that allows the results to be filtered to selected parts. I saw the option and thought I'd mention it.
