How can I create a section through a solid to evaluate the results at any location?

Answer

By default, you can only see the results for solids on boundary surfaces. In order to evaluate the results in the solid, it is necessary to create a section or several sections. For this, you can use the "On sectional area of solid in graphics" feature (see Figure 01). Next, define the edge points A and B, which can also rest outside the structure. To consider the result of the section, it is recommended to deactivate the solid results (see Figure 02).
