Local Gravity PropertyManager

The Local Gravity boundary condition specifies the orientation of the gravity vector during Warp analysis. This option is available with the multi material overmolding injection process.

To open the Local Gravity PropertyManager

  • In the Plastics CommandManager, expand Boundary Conditions , and click Local Gravity .


The local gravity you specify here overwrites the global gravity you define in the Warp Parameters PropertyManager. This accounts for possible rotation of the mold during the multi material overmolding process.

Cavity Selects the bodies corresponding to the cavity domains to which you apply gravity.
Gravity Downward Direction for Warp Specifies the direction of the gravitational force in the global coordinate system. Select one of the global coordinates X-, Y-, or Z- to define the direction of the gravitational force.
