Manage E-Points

Use the Manage E-Points tool to modify local system collectors and evaluation points.

For quick risk analysis of an E-Line, you may need to modify or reduce the number of evaluation points on E-Lines. You may also have to modify the local system collector orientation.

Use the Manage E-Points tool to delete connections and rotate Local Coordinate Systems (LCS).

Using the Manage E-Points tool, you can complete the following:
  • Rotate LCS to ensure it is properly aligned with the actual gap direction.
  • Delete connections in places where they are not needed to speed up simulation and post processing.
    Restriction: This workflow is not supported from 2022.1 onward.
  • Relocate the RBE3 elements of the realized E-Line to a nearby element to ensure a proper definition of the E-point elements.
Important: All changes made using the Manage E-Points tool will be lost if the E-Line connector is re-realized.
