Editing Element Orientation Ansys Mechanical (WB)

Editing Element Orientation Ansys Mechanical (WB)


Is it possible to change an element orientation(solid) from Ansys Mechanical (instead of APDL)? Also, I reviewed the ANSYS HELP document and found the "ESYS" command, but when I had added it to the command block in the geometry nothing happens.

What I wrote in the command block:

The solid which edge orientation I want to change:

And the reason for changing the edge orientation is that I got the opposite result after applying BIAS option when sizing the edge.

The problem looks geometry related, not element related. Try the following: click on "Reverse Bias" in the details of your Edge Sizing and select one of the edges.

Best regards,
