Area Analysis - Evaluating Press Forces


New member

If you want to have area analysis from parts of the model, for to evaluate press forces or mass analysis, do the follow:

- Make a datum plane in the initial point of analysis

- Make a pattern from that datum plane, dividing the model in any parts which you want

- So, choice the Analysis > Model Analysis > Thickness > Datum Plane, after that choose patterns, so you will have areas from each datum created before.

For me it is so usefull, I hope that it help someone.
