2D Simplification

You can simplify certain 3D models by simulating them in 2D. 2D simplification is available for static, nonlinear, pressure vessel design, thermal studies, and design studies. You can save analysis time by using the 2D simplification option for applicable models. 2D models require fewer mesh elements and less complex contact conditions compared to the 3D models. After running the analysis, you can plot the results in 3D.
