Deepak Gupta Aug 6, 2010 3:33 PM (in response to 1S91QBB)You need to model the part as 1/2 or 1/4 depending on the symmetry. You can also achieve it by doing cut extrude and then use the faces for applying symmetry in the simulation.

1S91QBB Aug 6, 2010 3:44 PM (in response to Deepak Gupta)Thanks for the comment, which I am using "extrude cut" which is working!....by the way, I wonder if we can display the results for whole model though we did solve using half model...is there way? If yes, where I can do this?

Deepak Gupta Aug 6, 2010 4:25 PM (in response to 1S91QBB)I believe the result should be for the complete model as you have used symmetry option.

Abhay Naik Aug 27, 2010 2:45 PM (in response to 1S91QBB)Yes, the results shown are for the full model. Although the fact is that only the 1/2 or 1/4 symmetric model is shown in the stress/other countours..
I have used Abaqus before and it does provide this option where you can show plots with the entire model
Not sure if this option is pressent in SW though...
Good that you mentioned this point...I will also try to search for this option in SW...
