Dears, I don't know how to generate the section view of the stress contours, I just finished a simple structure analysis and I'd like to "cut" the model to show some section view of the contours, so I use the postporcess box to generate, when I defined the "cut" plane and click OK, nothing happened, I try to find the correct way from the help manual, but it seems there is no more detailed information regarding this function.
The example only show the "cut section" function can be done for a SOLID model, but is that possible to deal with the middle surface model? or I need try other way to do this?
Can anybody take a look? Many thanks!
Solved! Go to Solution.
The dynamic cutting plane can only be applied on contoured solids. If you have Femap 11.3 or newer, you can accomplish something similar to a section cut with the draw / erase toolbar. If you are comfortable with the API, you can create a program that can mimic the dynamic cutting plane or even automate it. See the API attached orignially desinged by Chip Fricke.
