How To Create Section Planes In ANSYS Mechanical?

blank
Click on ‘New Section Plane’ in ANSYS Mechanical.

To create a new section plane, click on the ‘New Section Plane’ command in ANSYS Mechanical toolbal as shown by red arrow above.

blank
Slice the geometry to create a section plane.

After clicking on ‘New Section Plane’ command in ANSYS Mechanical, draw a slicing line as shown by red arrow, that will slice the geometry to obtain a section plane perpendicular to the screen. Orientation of geometry is also very important to create desired section plane.

Section plane options in ANSYS Mechanical.

There are some options in ‘Section Plane’ window in ANSYS Mechanical. If you click on the created section plane, the options avaliable for section planes right to left, inside green box;

  • New Section Plane: You can create a new section plane with same steps that explained above.
  • Edit Section Plane: You can edit the selected section plane from the list.
  • Delete Section Plane: You can delete the selected section plane from list.
  • Show Elements: By default, mesh elements are also divided with created section plane. If you click on this option, the section that is created will shown like below;

Whole mesh elements are shown in section plane.

As you see above, all the mesh elements that are coincident with section plane wholly shown in ANSYS Mechanical.

As you see above creating section planes is very easy in ANSYS Mechanical.
