Worst principal stress (NX9)


Hi everyone,

how do I create a custom contour plot in NX 9 from already available data? Specifically I want to use Min Principal Stress and Max Principal Stress to create Worst principal stress (WPS), so I don't have to look at two contour plots all the time.

From what I understand, WPS was implemented in NX10 as standard output but in NX9 it should be possible to use the "Manipulation" feature (or something like that?) to create a contour plot with the following rules:

WPS = If(max(abs(maxPrinc), abs(minPrinc) = maxPrinc)(maxPrinc)else(minPrinc)
