Take Advantage of Repeatedly Used Components in CAD by Instance Meshing in ANSYS Mechanical

Repetitive meshing tasks can be a significant portion of the time a user spends setting up an FEA model for simulation. In cases where components are reused multiple times in an assembly, the meshing can be tedious.

Select 20 of the exact same face in a bolt circle to specify the number of elements on an annulus…

Select the 20 bodies that those 20 faces belong to for a mesh method…

What if the number of bodies/faces/even edges is larger? Continue reading
