Wondering if anyone knows "why" when you set a beam size it shows much larger when the results are plotted. I know my customers will ask why the gates appear to be so large in the results.
Please see the attached pictures.
To Tim : it's false !
The results correspond to the gate section seen by Moldflow (a square) not the one you drawned (rectangular).
If you want to simulate a fan gate, modelize it using dual domain mesh and not beams.
It's only a display issue. I've ran many, many analysis over the last year and half with this visual issue. The assigned properties are used for calulations, not the visual size... otherwise the results would be completely screwed up...
Sorry, I'm maybee wrong.
I tried to find an example and it doesn't work as I thought.
