Creating an axisymmetric model from 3D geometry in Abaqus

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Apr 23, 2019 9:47:14 AM

Geometry is often drawn in 3D, also when it is axisymmetric. The analysis will be much faster when making use of the axisymmetry. In such cases, we need to get an axisymmetric cross-section out of a 3D model. In this blog I will show a way to do this with Abaqus. The main idea is to create a sketch on a cross-section of the part and project the relevant edges to this sketch. This sketch is saved and used to create a new axisymmetric part. This isn't the only way of doing it, but at least it gives an idea.
