Display body definition

A display body:

  • can be two-dimensional planar, axisymmetric, or three-dimensional;

  • is associated with a part instance and up to three reference nodes, such that the motion of the part instance is governed by the motion of the reference nodes;

  • is used for display purposes only and does not take part in the analysis;

  • can be used to make the analysis more efficient while improving visualization of analysis results; and

  • is especially useful for mechanism or multibody dynamic analyses.
