Can we drag normal direction elements?

Recommended Posts

I know we can use drag to drag element from x,y or z direction.

 

But can we drag normal direction elements?

 

I have a circle and I want it to plus the diameter, so I need to drag it's normal direction elements.

How should I do this.

 

Because I change here, but it can't show what I want.

@Q.Nguyen-Dai Really thanks for your help.

 

Because I used the HyperMesh 2017.2, I think at the last step my interface is different from you.

 

My last step is like this. I think it will be helpful for other person.

I think it's have some problem about although it can drag the normal element.

 

We just can drag one layer element at once, I think it will spend every user many times.

@Q.Nguyen-Dai Hi

 

When I use the scale, I find a problem about if I want to scale for the distance.

 

Can we do that? Because when I set the scale factor, I can't catch the value correctly.

 

And it can't grow the size what I want.

 

Do you have this solution? Really thanks.

                                     future external radius

The scale factor = --------------------------------------------

                                     current external radius

@Q.Nguyen-Dai Thanks for your help.

 

I have a last question.

 

If I have many layers about the model, and I want to separate them.

But when I use Tool→Organize→element by faces it can't let me pick one layer of elements.

How can I quickly pick every layer of them and where is my wrong?

 

Really thanks.

Hi, solid elems cannot be selected "by face"

with first layer, try "find attach" (shift F5): select nodes "by face", then find elems attached to those nodes.

once you moved a layer to new comp, you can select it "by collector" and select next layer "by adjacent", then subtract 1st layer from selection also "by collector"
