Create Body from Deformed Shape

After running a warpage analysis, you can export the deformed shape as a SOLIDWORKS® part body.

To open the Body from Deformed Shape PropertyManager:

In the PlasticsManager, under Results, right-click Warp Results, and click Create Body from Deformed Shape.

Save the deformed body as a new configuration or a new part file. Use the Advanced Export to access alternative export formats, such as Surfaces and Tessellated body, to recreate geometry from a deformed shape.

Product designers can use this functionality to evaluate a part’s deformed shape and assembly fit requirements, while mold designers can size the mold accurately.

Designers of plastic optical lenses can use Body from Deformed Shape in their optical simulations to evaluate the effect of manufacturing-induced deformation on the performance of the lens.
