Ansys Design modeler subtraction
 
Hi

I have a complex agglomoration of particles in the design modeler, this agglomoration is bounded by a box. How can I make design modeler recognize the pore space. That means subtracting a complex geometry from a full box which gives acomples pore network.

Can anyone tell me the exact procedure?

Thank You,

natantyt,

* Freeze both volumes (tools --> freeze)
* Create --> Boolean ---> Operation: subtract, target body: select box, tool body: select agglomeration. Preserve tool bodies? No

Good luck,

Graham
