Add a Reference System

Select a reference system for model position in the animation. The reference system is stationary, and you can view how the the model moves relative to the system.

  1. Click Reference System to add a new stationary reference.

  2. Click Add Reference System .
  3. Pick 3 points on the blank to specify the stationary reference.

    • You can create multiple reference systems, but you can only select one as current at a time.
    • Reference systems created within stages are specific to those stages.
    • Only the displacement results change with the creation of a new reference system.
    • Springback analysis involves rigid body displacement and rotation. Use a reference system to remove the rigid body from the springback displacement.
