change 3D model to 2D
Hello everybody,
I am working on a model of an elektrical mashine and I want to convert a 3D model into a 2D model.

But I have a little trouble by changing the calculation way. Because just chaniging the units from N/m to N/m makes false results.
The size off the numbers are still too huge.
The deformation of the stator just by air gap forces are instead of m in mm.
From my point of view this is a result of the quantity of nodes. In the 3D model the force ist splittet on about 150 nodes in the 2D model the modified forces (N/m to n/m) are splittet on just 9 nodes.

So are there any possibilities in Ansys itself to reduce a 3D model to a 2D one?
Or do you have any other ideas how I can solve this problem?
