Revolve to 3D Params - dialog
A 3D model is constructed by revolving the 2D object by 90° around vertical or horizontal rotation axis placed in the plane of the 2D model. The position of the axis relative to the 2D model defines the resulting 3D constructions. The option of clipping the 2D model to one side of the axis is also provided.
Important: Remember to save the originating 2D model prior to executing the revolution. The operation is not reversible and cannot be undone.
Example 1: Following 2D model is once converted by revolution around the X axis at Y=2000mm (which is coincident with the adiabatic boundary at the top of the 2D model)
The model below results from the same 2D model revolved around the Y axis at X=-1000 mm.
Example 2: The 2D model of a wall & floor junction (shown below) is revolved around the Y axis at X=1000 mm producing a 3D corner component available for further detailed modelling and thermal assessment.
Example 3: Component in connection with ground was prepared in 2D at first and then revolved to 3D (rotated around Y axis at X=4475 mm).
