Setting Up Parameters for Regeneration Analyses
You can set up parameter-based measures for use with regeneration analyses. A regeneration analysis is a predefined analysis that regenerates your Creo Parametric part. Regeneration analyses do not utilize several of Creo Simulate's more resource-intensive functions, so this type of analysis provides very rapid results.
You can select regeneration analyses as the basis for the following design studies:
standard design studies
local sensitivity studies
global sensitivity studies
optimization studies
If you plan to run a design study that relies on a regeneration analysis, note that the only result quantities available are measures and, for optimization studies, shape histories. In other words, the results you will view most typically are graphs of measures relative to design variables.
Further, regeneration analysis does not engage the engine to calculate typical Creo Simulate measures such as von Mises stress. The only measures it calculates are parameter-based measures.
Thus, you should be sure to define parameter-based measures for the model. If you do not, you will be unable to review the results of the study. In addition, if you want to run an optimization study based on a regeneration analysis, you must define your goals and limits as parameter-based measures.
If you choose to run a regeneration analysis in your current Creo Parametric session and not in a separate session, the shape change is performed directly on the model in Creo Parametric's memory. Using this method enables you to complete a study faster than running regeneration in a separate session.
When defining parameter-based measures, you should be familiar with basic points.
