Red mesh

[ Edited ]

Hi everyone

 

I recently added a new material to my Fibersim material database, and edited the ply material of the part that I am currently working on smoothly. But now that I run the producibility analysis, the resulting mesh is completely red, even in areas that do not show any kind of deformation (like wrinkles or bridging):

I already tried with different simulation parameters, but only the top deformation changes, the color stays the same. When I used the default materials, the mesh came out like this:

Thank you!

Re: Red mesh

I have not seen this before. What did you use for your warning and limit angles for your new material? If it is not proprietary, maybe you could post the material that you added. If it is proprietary, go through GTAC. It looks like the limit angle may be set to zero (which would make everything red).
