Define Planar Slip Surfaces

Use the Planar Slip tool to constrain surface mesh on planar faces. Mesh on selected surfaces will only be allowed to slip tangentially along the planar surface.

  1. From the Motion ribbon, click the Planar Slip tool.
    Figure 1.

  2. Select surfaces.
    The surfaces must be planar and all surfaces in each instance must be in the same plane or the solver will throw an error.
  3. From the guide bar, execute the command in the following ways:
    • Click to confirm your selection and remain in the tool.

      This allows you to continue creating instances and helps you visualize and edit instances with the legend.

    • Click to confirm your selection and exit the tool.
