Geometry Analysis

Geometry Analysis identifies geometric entities in a part that could cause a problem in other applications. These applications include finite element modeling or computer-aided machining.

Geometry Analysis identifies the following entities:

  • sliver faces
  • small faces
  • short edges
  • knife (sharp) edges and vertices
  • discontinuous edges and faces

You can specify values of control parameters to identify these geometric entities. For example, you can specify the maximum length for short edges.

The results can be graphically analyzed with the Geometry Analysis PropertyManager that appears after the analysis is complete.
