Effects Of Shrinkage In Casting Operations
You can create section planes in ANSYS to see the situation inside the solid bodies. In here, we explain how to create section planes and edit them in ANSYS Mechanical to see inside the solid bodies, with a very basic example below.
To create a new section plane, click on the ‘New Section Plane’ command in ANSYS Mechanical toolbal as shown by red arrow above.
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.

All the created section planes will be listed on ‘Section Plane’ window as shown by green arrow above.
As you see above, section plane is created with the slicing line that is drawnin 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;
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.
