Create Generic Structural Elements

Use the Generic tool to collect elements and free body sections in designpoints.

  1. From the Certification ribbon, click the Generic tool.
    Figure 1.

  2. Select entities to collect.
    For components, parts, and sets (element sets only), the method is evaluated on the entity's associated elements.
  3. Optional: On the guide bar, click to select a Split option.
    For elements, you can create designpoints based on the element’s property or component.

    For all other entity types, you can create either a single designpoint with the collection of selected entities or create a designpoint per entity.

  4. Optional: Select a destination DesignPointSet to hold newly created designpoints.
    If no set is selected, a new one is created with config Generic.

    If you enter this menu from the Certification Browser context menu using Auto DDP, the selector is pre-populated with the selected designpointset.

  5. Specify a structuralproperty entity to assign.
  6. On the guide bar, click one of the following:
