Beam Section Icons
When you have entered values and accepted them on the Beam Section Definition dialog box, Creo Simulate places wireframe icons of the beam section on the beam. The icon is a full-scale representation of the beam section you defined. The beam section icon allows you to verify the sizing of the beam section, beam orientation, and beam offsets. For example, if you specify non-zero values for the DY and DZ offset on the Beam Orientation Definition dialog box, the icon is offset from the beam axis the specified distance.
The beam section icon lies in a plane orthogonal to the beam X axis, as shown in this illustration:
Note that for sketched sections, the software uses a reproduction of the sketch for the icon.
For information on the icons used for each beam section type, see Beam Section Definition Dialog Box and select the description for the appropriate beam section type.
