Example: 2D Axisymmetric Modeling

The following example shows a simple tank model and indicates how you would select geometry to rotate about an axis in a 2D axisymmetric modelâ€”in this case, the Y axis. The example also shows the differing results of modeling the tank as a 2D solid model and as a 2D shell model. Note that the geometry you select for the 2D solid version of this model is the cross-section surface, whereas the geometry you select for the 2D shell version is a curve to which you have already assigned a simple or advanced shell idealizationâ€”in this case, the outside curve.
