How to change visual scale for view result?

6mm deflection looks like it is too much deflection.

 

How to get realistic view???

Dear Rasa,

This is very easy, click in the "Edit Post View" icon and activate Deformation, then click in RESULTS:

Here you can choose between "%Model" and "Absolute". For instance, if you run a nonlinear analysis with "large displacement effect" activated then you may want to see displacements results at real scale, ie, 1:1. In this case choose absolute and enter 1.0 in the scale.

But please be aware that in general in linear static analysis (SOL101) deformed shape is exaggerated by nature, please note we run with the assumptions to have "small displacements & small deformations", then we want to see the "trend" of the results, if you plot results at scale 1:1 then you won't see any deformation, OK?.

 

Best regards,

Blas.
