Associate Geometric entites

Hi,

Is there any way to associate lets say a point created in FEMAP on a curve to the curve so that I can use 'Geometry Editing features like point to edge etc to break down the surface before meshing?

 

I know for curves, there is an project curve -> imprint feature...just wondering if there is a similar feature for points as well?

 

Also, apart from copying the point, is there anyway to "project (make a copy)" a point or node on to a curve? The project option moves the point or node on to the curve which is not what I want.

 

Also if I can get my hands on some video demo or tutorial on mesh clean up in FEMAP, it would be great.

Thanks & regards,

- N

Hello!,

Under MESHING TOOLBOX go to GEOMETRY EDITING > CURVE BREAK where you need to select first a point to break the curve by this point. From now in advance the new created point con be used to imprint the surface using point-to-edge, etc..

Regarding the second question, one of the selection methods available in FEMAP that in general people is not aware of it, tht is ONTO CURVE: simply click the point, next click the curve and FEMAP will compue the coordinates of the proyected point onto the curve. You can use this feature for creation of any entity ...

Regarding videos, you have a lot, visit the FEMAP site of DEMO VIDEOS at http://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en_us/products/femap/videos/fea-preprocessing-demo.shtml

Also searching in my YOUTUBE channel you have this one, for instance:

Thank You sir for the response and clarifying usage of Onto Curve option. I had explored this feature before but was slightly unclear on its exact procedure. Got a better handle.

 

I have another quick question. I was just wondering if possible on how to get FEMAP to display max & min values of output in the model.

 

I found this image in a tutorial and it would be great to have this feature. I explored View Options but was unable to find it.

Hello!,

Also for lovers of the classic interface go to "F6 > POSTPROCESSING > CONTOUR/CRITERIA STYLE > MAX MIN" ..

Dang it...I think I overlooked the labels feature.

 

Thanks for pointing it out folks.
