New internal volume of cylinder after simulated collapse

Question asked by Liz Mansfield on Jun 10, 2016

I am having trouble probing the geometry of deformed parts/assemblies. A simple scenario would be to take a thick walled rubber cylinder and apply a collapsing force to the internal face. I have followed instructions from Solidworks help to save the deformed shape as a new part, but upon opening it, the "features" are not recognized or I cannot probe any of the dimensions. Obtaining exact dimensions of a deformed part/assembly sees like a common task, but I haven't found much information about how to do this. Please help!
