View Binder Sinter Analysis Results

View, animate, and plot the results of a binder sintering analysis.

Before viewing results, you must first run a 3D printing analysis using the Run Analysis tool.
  1. Click Show Analysis Results on the Analyze icon to load the results.
    Tip: To find and open a tool, press Ctrl+F. For more information, see Find and Search for Tools.
  2. Select a Run and Stage to view in the Analysis Explorer.
  3. Select a result type. The result is displayed in the modeling window.
    The results slider is scalable and provides a color gradient for the selected result type.

    • To change the upper or lower bound for the results slider, click on the bound and enter a new value. Click the reset button to restore the default values.
    • To filter the results so that areas on the model with results greater than a specified value are masked, click-and-drag the arrow on the results slider.
  • To change the legend color for the result type, click the icon next to the results slider and select Legend Colors.
  • To delete a run from the Analysis Explorer, right-click the run name to select Delete Run from the context menu.

Show Options

Determine what is made visible in the modeling window when viewing analysis results. You can show or hide the initial shape, loads and supports, deformation, and/or contours.

Option Description Note
Show/Hide Initial Shape Show/hide the initial shape as a reference.
Show/Hide All Loads and Supports Show/hide loads and supports. You can also show only the current loads and supports.
Show/Hide Deformed State Show/hide the deformed shape as a reference.
Show/Hide Contours Show/hide contours.
  • Interpolate during animation: Animate the result contour.
  • Blended contours: Toggle between blended and nonblended contours.
  • Element contour: Show contours based on elements rather than nodes. This option is only available for results types that are based on elements.
  • Vector plot: Display the direction vectors for the displacement result type.
Show/Hide Elements Show/hide the element edges. This icon appears under the view controls in the lower left of the modeling window, but only when the Analysis Explorer is active.


Create, show, hide, and list callouts for selected result types at points of interest on your model.

After running an analysis, click the Show Analysis Results on the Analyze icon. Options for callouts appear in the Callouts section of the Analysis Explorer.

Callout Icon Description Note
Create, Show, and Hide Callouts

Click the icon, then click a point on the model to create a callout. After creating callouts, click the icon to show/hide the callouts in the modeling window.
List Callouts

Display a list of all callouts in a table. Each callout is specific to the selected run. For structural analysis, it is also specific to the selected load case. Click the icons in the table to show/hide individual callouts.
Min/Max Callouts

Create a callout showing where the minimum/maximum value occurs for the selected result type.
Note: When factor of safety is selected, the minimum value is shown.
Click the min/max callout in the modeling window to create a regular callout at the same location.

Dynamic Callouts: Make callouts dynamic, so they display the value of the currently selected result type. If you enable the Compare Results feature in a callout, the callout becomes static.

Plot Print3D Results

If you've previously run a 3D printing analysis, you can plot the results from the Analysis Explorer.

Prerequisite: Run a Print3D analysis and view the results.
  1. Select a run and result type in the Analysis Explorer.
  2. Click the icon under Callouts and create at least one callout for each result type you want to plot.
  3. Click the Plot icon to view the results plot.
    • Select a callout in the modeling window to highlight it in the plot.
    • Select the callout label in the plot to hide it.
    • Select the hamburger menu to select between showing all callouts in one plot and showing each callout in separate plots.
