3D Renderer Results

Review your structural analysis results in color

After a structure has finished solving, you can view the member results of the structure in 3D with colour contours. Simply click the 3D button on the right after a structure has solved.

 

Member Results

To view the 3D rendered results for member results, simply click the ‘Member Results’ menu button on the left. The dropdown allows you to select many different types of results which will be visually represented on a scale of colours. Red indicates the highest of results, whilst blue indicates the lowest of results.

Results which can be displayed include:

  • Bending Moment Z
  • Bending Moment Y
  • Shear Force Y
  • Shear Force Z
  • Axial Force
  • Top Bending Stress Z
  • Top Bending Stress Y
  • Btm Bending Stress Z
  • Btm Bending Stress Y
  • Shear Stress Z
  • Shear Stress Y
  • Axial Stress
  • Displacement X
  • Displacement Y
  • Displacement Z
  • Displacement Sum

Deflection Results

Sometimes it helps to review the true and exaggerated deflected shape of your structure, to check the strength and connectivity of your model. To view the 3D rendered results for deflection, simply click the ‘Deflection’ menu button on the left. The slider allows you to turn off the deflection, show true deflection, an exaggerated auto deflection, auto deflection x 2, auto deflection x 3, auto deflection x 5.

 

Plate Results

To view the 3D rendered results for plate results, simply click the ‘Plate Results’ menu button on the left. The dropdown allows you to select many different types of results which will be visually represented on a scale of colours. Red indicates the highest of results, whilst blue indicates the lowest of results.

Results which can be displayed include:

  • Membrane Force X
  • Membrane Force Y
  • Membrane Force XY
  • Shear Force XY
  • Shear Force YZ
  • Moment X
  • Moment Y
  • Moment XY
  • Displacement X
  • Displacement Y
  • Displacement Z
  • Displacement Sum
  • Direct Stress X
  • Direct Stress Y
  • Shear Stress XY
  • Shear Stress XZ
  • Shear Stress YZ
  • Von Mises Stress
  • Max Shear Stress (Tresca)
  • Major Principal Stress
