Filtering Tool In ANSYS Mechanical Tree Outline

In most applications and softwares, filtering of objects and other things in complex works can be very useful. Also ANSYS Mechanical has a very useful filtering tool that you can use it. For example, if you are working with very complex project in ANSYS Mechanical such as you have lots of geometries, boundry conditions, connections, coordinate systems etc. But you want to update an object from all of these crowd. You can do this from ANSYS Mechanical filtering tool. In here, we explain how to use this filtering tool in ANSYS Mechanical with a very basic example below.

How To Use ANSYS Mechanical Filtering Tool?

ANSYS Mechanical filtering tool.

As you see above, you can select the type of analysis tree objects from pop-up list as shown by red arrow above. You can select one of them to show only this selected type of objects in ANSYS Mechanical tree.

If you select ‘Name’, you can direcyly enter the name of the object to find it from ANSYS Mechanical tree outline. Also if you select ‘Tag’, you can search your item from outline tree with its tag.

If you select ‘Type’ you can find out the obejcts or object group according to its type. You can select the type from teh second list which are; Results, Boundry Condition, Connections and Commands.

‘State’ also has same logic with ‘Type’ that you can filter the objects according to their state in ANSYS Mechanical; Supressed, Underdefined, Not Licensed, Ignored.

All the coordinate systems will be listed if you select ‘Coordinate Systems’ form this filtering list in ANSYS Mechanical.

As you know that ‘Model’ section contains geometries and bodies. If you sselect ‘Model’ from the filtering list, all the geometries sub-assemblies will be shown.

Graphics show the informative situations of ANSYS analyses. You can select the ‘Graphics’ from filtering tool to show all the graphics avaliable in ANSYS Mechanical outline tree.


The use of filtering tool in ANSYS Mechanical is very easy like above. Do not forget to leave your comments and questions about ANSYS Mechanical filtering tool of outline tree below. Your precious feedbacks are very important for us.
