    How to quickly simplify components for Flow without redrawing them?

    Eli Gurevich

      I am wondering if there is a way to quickly (automatically) simplify components into the format that Flow wants them to be in without redrawing them from scratch. For example, if I want to create an IC-Chip as a 2 Resistor Element, I need to supress my either detailed model of the chip or a rectangle that's created by CircuitWorks and redraw it into 2 blocks one on top of the other. This can take for ever especially if there are lots of chips on the PCB. Is there an automatic way to select a rectangular chip or a chip assembly, click on it and have these 2 blocks created automatically. I guess I am either looking for an Add-on that does this, or some kind of a script. I have not seen this fetaure in Solidworks Sim Flow itself.

       

      Thanks
