apply a notch on a part with the orphan mesh

apply a notch on a part with the orphan mesh

(OP)
Hello everyone
does anyone know how can i apply a notch to a part with the orphan mesh which i imported from another program as an input file?
the part is a polycrystalline material which i imported from Dream.3D

RE: apply a notch on a part with the orphan mesh

If it’s something like a bending sample with V notch used for fracture tests, you can use a seam feature to disconnect selected nodes and make the crack open during bendning.

actually for the moment I want to deal with very simple cubic notch and it would be used for the tension test. but since my input file is pre-meshed I didn't know how to create a notch on it.

RE: apply a notch on a part with the orphan mesh

Then I think it would be better to use Edit Mesh tools available for operations on orphan meshes. You can delete individual elements, move nodes and so on.

hello again the edit mesh tools work for my case for deleting of the element but i have a problem with creating a specific geometry as my notch geometry. because since these tools just delete the mesh it is not possible to make a cubic notch in the material.

RE: apply a notch on a part with the orphan mesh

You can try to turn that orphan mesh into geometry using Geometry Edit —> Face —> From element faces. Then it will be easy to do it.

thanks a lot Geometry Edit blongs to which modulus?

RE: apply a notch on a part with the orphan mesh

This option is available in the Part module.

eBook - Efficient and Effective Production Support with 3D Printed Jigs and Fixtures
Jigs and fixtures offer manufacturers a reliable process for delivering accurate, high-quality outcomes, whether for a specific part or feature, or for consistency across multiples of parts. Although the methodologies and materials for producing jigs and fixtures have evolved beyond the conventional metal tooling of years past, their position as a manufacturing staple remains constant due to the benefits they offer.
