Laminate should not be symmetric

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

quick question that Google did not give me an answer for and I am a Little pressed for time.
I have surface an would like to apply a stacked Laminate on top of it, so that the surface is used as base for the Laminate.
However, whatever Setting I use, the Laminate always turns out to be symmetric, to each side of the surface.

I cannot possibly work with a symmetric Laminate as I have constraints regarding the size of my part. The surface marks the outermost surface of my part and thus cannot be exceeded by a Laminate.
I have tried the STACK Option in the Laminate creation tool but this did not seem to help.

Any help would be greatly apprechiated!

Greetings,

 

Lenny

Okay quick update - I figured it out: The Z0 Option in the PCOMPP Property Card can be set to REAL, TOP or BOTTOM. Using BOTTOM, the Laminate is placed directly on the surface which is great.
However, now it tells me that this is not allowed for Free Size Optimization. How is this possible, or sensible at all?
Is there a Workaround for this?

Hi @Lenny

 

Can you try Zoffs on element?

 

Anyways, Automatic offset control is available in composite free-size and sizing optimization where the specified offset values are automatically updated based on thickness changes.
