Create Property By Element ID

Use the Create Properties/Beam sections For Each Element tool to create a new property with the same ID as the element by copying the existing 1D and 2D element property and assigning it to the component/part.

This is useful for creating a GFEM-global FE model for size and beam section optimization using the design explorer (DSVAR shell thickness and standard beam section dimensions for every element).

  1. From the menu bar, click Aerospace > Spatial ID Manager > Property by Element ID.
  2. Select 1D and 2D elements.
    You have the option to copy and create a new BEAM section for the design explorer design variable with element ID.
  3. Click OK.
