5.1 Adding models

Table of Contents

To couple and decouple components, you have to recreate the assembly topology in the design area, by adding components, linking the interfaces, and adding stiffness information and loads. The idea behind the design area is to allow you to visualize the assembly in the simplest possible way. For this reason, we have decided to leave out all the complexity of the 3D to let you work with a simpler but effective 2D environment. A 3D viewer will be implemented in a later stage, to allow you to better visualize components orientation, etc.

Adding components and loads

You need to add all component substructures of your assembly in the design area. Components can be generated either from tests or simulations. If desired, you cal also add lodas, such as Blocked Forces.

To add components and loads to the design area, complete the next steps:

  1. Open the fly-in library.
  2. Drag and drop the component or load to the design area.
