Analysis Details

Thickness range

Lists four ranges of critical thickness, with the number of faces and surface area of the model that falls into each category. Each range is color coded to the Thickness scale in the PropertyManager. (The color range is also shown in the Model View(s) section of the report.) The % of analyzed area is the total area analyzed that falls into the associated Thickness range. If a face falls into more than one Thickness range, the face is classified in the more critical of ranges.

Critical features

Lists all features that violate the Target thickness. Features are listed in the order of criticality, which is directly proportional to the maximum deviation of the feature.

Mass Properties Lists the Surface Area, Volume, and Mass of the part.
Model View(s) Displays the Thickness scale and any views you selected in the Thickness Analysis: Report Options dialog box.
