3D Model Type
Use this option if anything about the model will be outside the XY plane, including idealizations, loads, or displacements.
You can create the following types of idealizations for a 3D model:
masses (Structure only)
springs (Structure only)
spot welds
You can define loads, constraints, and other model attributes in six degrees of freedom for a 3D model:
translation in X, Y, and Z
rotation in X, Y, and Z
For solids, only three degrees of freedom are available—translation in X, Y, and Z.
