Ansys Shell Offset Thickness

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


In Hypermesh, under the Ansys User Profile; I cannot seem to figure out how to show shell thickness offsets.


1. I apply a thickness of .5" to a Shell181 group of elements

2. I change the Section Property SECOFFSET optio to TOP / BOTTOM / USER instead of MID

3. Hypermesh still shows the thickness at the middle of the element.


To parallel this, I know that the Nastran user profile will correctly display Nastran imposed ZOFFs applied to PSHELL cards. This is the desired affect I am looking for graphically in Hypermesh for the Ansys User Profile.


Does anyone know how to view the thickness offsets applied with SECOFFSET in Ansys?


Thank you,
