Hi, all;

This might be simple I am beginner....

Would you advise and comment how I can do 1/2 or 1/4 model simulation?

Do I need to generate 1/2 or 1/4 model at the beginning? Or if I can cut or put the symmetric plan if I have already whole model?


Is it done by putting symmetric plane in step of giving constraint? seems asking where is the symmetric I can generate the symmetric plane in the model if I need? I could insert split line for mesh it similar way?



Below is the simplified model with two thin parts I can have the symetric plane to perform1/2 or 1/4 model simulation? how I can put or insert symmetric planes which I think that it needs to panetrate below model to cut 1/2 or 1/4 through two parts assembled?


Or, is there any site or docs...I can learn this basic?


Any input will be appreicated.
