In WF4/5 setting a cross section active in Pro/E meant that it could be seen/used in Mechanica.
This was useful, example defining contact regions on concentric internal components, picking the surfaces was less confusing.
I know we can use 'hide' but in some circumstances it is not as good.
How can we see x-sections in Creo Simulate?
It used to be you could get out of Simulate/Mechanica to control cross sections then go back into Simulate/Mechanica to finish your work. Wish they would give us full control of cross section in Mechanica/Simulate. Something I have been wanting for a long time.
I have a produdct enhancement request here:
Full control in Simulate would be great!
I was moderately happy with what we had in WF4/5 despite having to go back and forth.
I guess that you have looked and found x-secs missing completely in Creo Simulate?
I couldn't get your link to work, though don't we know have to start one of these 'polls' now?
Do a search for
Add ability to Turn On/Off existing model/assembly Cross Sections along with creating them in Simulate / Mechanica
This is a product idea that is open for voting
You are correct, going from wildfire 4 to Creo 2 it looks like we have lost some functionality.
