pressure load surface visualization...


pressure load surface visualization...

I often have to apply pressure loads to fairly complicated internal
passages where it is relatively easy to "miss" some of the surfaces.
Typically, I will turn off the simulation display and go into wireframe
to try and confirm that I haven't missed any surfaces, BUT this doesn't
always provide an absolute assurance. So, I am wondering what others
do? IS there a way to control the color of "selected" surfaces when
applying the pressure load? The default is a "pale red/pink" that
doesn't always show up so clearly, especially when your part is complex
enough that you cannot isolate the surfaces (by that I mean, that there
are some surfaces that no matter what orientation you look at them from,
there is another surface with pressure behind it). Seems like if this
was a darker color it would be easier to spot missed surfaces.

I remember there was a way to toggle a group of selected surfaces to a
wire mesh display during the selection process but I think that was only
in modeling mode. Or was it?

Oh, and yes, I try to use seed/boundary selection aids when

Thanks in advance...
