mechanica

Hi guys, using WF5.


Just started using WF5 mechanica and playing around. I created a 2000mm long section of rectangular hollw section steel.


100mm sq. with a 4mm wall section. Created this using a surface then thickened the section.


If i then try and set up shells using mid planes it tells me i do not have constant thickness for this to happen no matter what i choose.


I didn't have this issue with WF4 so any clues as to what i am doing wrong.


If i just leave it as a surface and don't thicken it and just use shell it works fine. But how do you know once you give the thickness parameter that the model creates a mid plane for the mess.


TIA.

Hi Steve,


Perhaps you can find some help on LearningExchange. There are a number of freetutorials on Mechanica topics, including a few related to working with shells. http://bit.ly/LEX_Mechanica
