Add Surface (Non-Circular)

If the Surface Type = Non-Circular in the Surface Options dialog, the Add Surface option in the Surfaces menu allows you to define specific NON-CIRCULAR (piece-wise linear) slip surfaces. To add a specific non-circular slip surface:

  1. Make sure the Surface Type = Non-Circular in the Surface Options dialog.

  2. Select Add Surface from the toolbar or the Surfaces menu.

  3. Enter the vertices defining the slip surface, graphically with the mouse, or by entering coordinates in the prompt line.

  4. When all vertices are entered, right-click and select Done, or press Enter with nothing in the prompt line, and the slip surface will be added to the model.
