Strategy: Working with Partial Shell Meshes
Use these strategies to help you create a partial shell mesh.
To select the Paired Only option automatically, set the fem_ignore_unpaired configuration option to yes.
To have the system remove the unopposed surfaces by default, set the fem_remove_unopposed configuration option to yes. If you set this configuration option, the software turns off the UseUnopposed option and removes the unopposed surfaces during shell mesh creation.
When Creo Simulate shell-meshes the model, it places the mesh on the midsurface, using the shape of the red side to determine the shape of the midsurface. When you work with a partially compressed model, flipping pairs might produce a different shell mesh if geometries of paired surfaces are not equivalent.
