FEA on design iterations without starting over


Hello. I have a basic question. Say you run an FEA and the result is not great, so you want to make a tweak to the model. Obviously, you don’t want to have to set up the entire FEA parameters all over again (faces, loads, etc.). But, if you’re importing new geometry, does this mean that you must essentially start over? Thank you.

Adding additional CAD elements to existing simulation

Hi @dengerer,

you can simply create another mesh and chose your modified model under “Domain”.

You do not have to set up the whole simulation again but can duplicate an existing simulation by right-clicking on the project and “Duplicate” it.

Hope that helps!
