Simcenter 3D Solutions Structural Deactivation Set doesn't take polygon bodies

Simcenter 3D



NX can take polygon bodies as entries for Simulation Object Structural

Deactivation Set, but the results do not show that the selected area related

to the polygon bodies are left out of the calculation.


Looking inside the *.diag, we can see a warning message that the simulation

object Simulation Object Structural Deactivation Set is being skipped:

WARNING : Skipping load and constraint set DeactivationSetBodies

This is because the nodes/elements are associated to the polygon faces and not

to the polygon bodies.

Choosing the polygon faces instead of the polygon bodies will correct this.

Or, choosing directly the nodes/elements.
