After running the analysis, the software generates customizable default result plots. You can view a plot by double-clicking its icon in the Simulation study tree.
You can also define other plots by right-clicking a result folder and selecting Define. When defining plots, you can use reference coordinate systems. For example, you can view radial and tangential stresses by selecting an axis when defining stress plots. You can associate result plots with named views.
Result viewing tools include fringe plots, section plots, iso plots, animation, probing, and exploded views. For sections plots, you can choose planar, cylindrical, and/or spherical cutting tools. A clipping utility is provided for convenient viewing of section and iso plots.
You can generate a structured Internet-ready report that includes all available plots automatically. The Report wizard guides you to customize the report and include result plots. To start the Report wizard, right-click the Report folder and select Define.
You can save result plots in eDrawing, bitmap, JPEG, VRML, XGL, and ZGL formats. You can save animations as AVI video files. You can include result plots automatically in the study report. To save a plot in any of these formats, right-click the plot icon and select Save As. To save all plots in the JPEG format, select Automatically update all plots in JPEG files in the Report dialog box.
