Read Duplicate Boundaries

The Read Duplicate Boundaries tool creates duplicate boundary surface entries for surfaces that are reproductions of each other.

The AcuSolve direct reader data input panel contains an option to read duplicate boundary surfaces.

For example, if the collection of faces present within a simple boundary condition command and a surface output command are identical, these surfaces are assumed to be duplicates. By default, only one boundary surface entry will be created for the duplicated pair. If the Read Duplicate Boundaries checkbox is activated, however, AcuFieldView will create a unique boundary surface entry for each instance of the duplicated surface.
Note: In releases of AcuFieldView prior to Version 13.0 duplicate surfaces were always read. This option eliminates these duplicates, yielding simplified lists of surfaces in the Boundary Surface Creation panel.
