About Results
Use the Home > Utilities > Simulate Results command to display the results of Native Mode, or NASTRAN results, or both for comparison. You can access Creo Simulate Results with this command either with or without opening a model in Creo Parametric.
Use the Analysis > Results command to display the results of an analysis or design study. You view results by defining and displaying one or more result windows. For additional information on FEM mode results, see About FEM Results.
The type of model and the items you select in your analysis or design study determine the quantities, locations, and displays that are available in results.
Creo Simulate displays your results using the display format, combined with the quantity and location you select, to define your result window. Only certain combinations of quantities and displays are valid depending on the type of model, design study, or analysis you select for the result window. In addition, a selection in one category might not be valid with some items in the other categories.
You can access results for both structural and thermal analyses after you select Analysis > Results. For information you should know about this command, see Before You Use the Results Command.
If you have a model open when you select the Analysis > Results command, Creo Simulate handles this model differently depending on the mode you are using. This affects the state of your working model while you are looking at results.
When you select the Analysis > Results command, Creo Simulate opens the Results user interface. Use this user interface to view, evaluate, and generate reports on analyses and design studies. You use the Result Window Definition dialog box to define and display your results.
Once you have found a combination of results that work well for your application, you can save these results as a template using the following steps:
1. Click File > Save or File > Save As. The Save As dialog box opens.
2. Select a location to which you want to save the results, or use the default directory which is the working directory.
3. Type a name in the File Name box and selectan option from the Type list.
4. Click Save.
After you have saved a template, you can recall that template using the Home > New from Template command. This command opens the Insert Result Windows from Template dialog box.
You can also see results information in the summary file available through the Analysis > Creo Simulate Analyses/Studies command. This information gives you an idea of how well the model withstands the effects of the loads and constraints you apply in your design studies.
Even if a design study run is still in progress or ended in error, you might still be able to display results. You can also get information about convergence problems from looking at results. For more information, see Troubleshoot Run Problems.
