Rapidly change the shape of the FE mesh without severely sacrificing the mesh quality.

Define morphing preferences. Morph constraint entities restrict or prescribe the movement of nodes during morphing, with a variety of available methods and dimensional values. These constraints are valid across all available morphing approaches and can be individually activated or deactivated at any time, even in between morphs or applying shapes. Use the Free tool to morph mesh by moving nodes, handles, or domains, by applying shapes, or by mapping to geometry. Use the Proximity tool to morph mesh using a simple distance or perturbation value around selected nodes, faces, edges, or shapes. Morph volume entities are highly deformable six-sided prisms which surround a portion of the FE mesh, and can be used to manipulate a mesh by manipulating the shape of the morph volume. Shapes are collections of perturbations from the initial configuration of the FE mesh before the morph. Create and apply morphing shapes. Shapes can be created by morphing or by converting load collectors. Once morphing is done, you can create shapes and design variables and submit DOE studies. The DOE study tool can be used for shape and CAD parameter DOEs, and for Automation. The purpose of this tool is to provide automation files so you can manually modify them and carry out DOEs.
