Femap Tips & Tricks: Enveloping Results

By AlRobertson

With ever increasing model sizes, the amount of results data calculated and produced by the solver also increases in proportion. So with more and more results data to sift through, it becomes increasingly important to be able to view and understand the results quickly and efficiently.
