Determining the Minimum and Maximum Locations for a Quantity

Creo Simulate provides several commands that show you where minimum and maximum values for the quantity are located. Use the following commands on the Home tab to determine minimum and maximum values:

• View Max—Use to find the location of the quantity maximum for the model view in the result window. If you rotate your model, move it, or change its size, you need to select the View Max command again to obtain a new maximum.

• View Min—Use to find the location of the quantity minimum for the model view in the result window. If you rotate your model, move it, or change its size, you need to select the View Min command again to obtain a new minimum.

• Model Max—Use to find the location of the quantity maximum for the model as a whole. If Creo Simulate does not display a value, you may need to rotate your model to find where the value lies.

• Model Min—Use to find the location of the quantity minimum for the model as a whole. If Creo Simulate does not display a value, you may need to rotate your model to find where the value lies.

When you select any of these commands, Creo Simulate marks each location with a small gray triangle icon and displays the value next to the icon. A triangle pointing up indicates a maximum. A triangle pointing down indicates a minimum. If the plot has a maximum or minimum at multiple locations, Creo Simulate marks one location and displays a message box telling you there are more.

When you have finished reviewing a value, you can clear it from the result window for better model visibility.
