Section cut in HyperMesh for check elements

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

 

I have a quite complexe geometry to mesh. For this I have applied 'Check Elements Quality Index', where it shows the quality of the elements. Now I would like to know, if there is a possibility to cut the model, to be able to see the inner contours and how the elements looks there. Then I could have a better overview of the situation and know what to change for the mesh.

 

I thank you in advance for your help!

Hello,

 

Align the model view to an axis first.

 

Then click F5

This is the mask element panel.

Select the elements how ever you want (preferably using a rectangular section)

 

Then click on mask elements.

This should solve your purpose.

 

Thankyou

Hi,

Along with the option specified by Sanjay you can also try the hidden line option (Post>>hidden line) in HyperMesh, where you can trim the model with respect to planes.
