5.1 Creating Geometry
Although FEBioStudio is not designed to be a mesh generator, it has a few features to create simple geometries and meshes. Most of these options are available from the Create panel. At the top it shows the various creation options.
- Primitives: Create simple geometric shapes.
- Discrete Objects: Create springs
- CAD Objects: Create geometry via CAD-like generation methods.
The most commonly used creation option is primitives. When selected a list of available primitives is shown. When selecting a primitive, its creation parameters are shown. After entering the desired values, click the Create button to create the primitive and add it to the model. The new object will be automatically selected in the Graphics View and shown in the Model Viewer.
