Use the Deformed tool to specify parameters for deformation display.

From the Results toolbar, click Deformed .
Note: You can also select Plot > Deformed from the Results menu.

Figure 1. Deformed Panel
You can use this function to see the motion of your model after analysis. You can display the original structure and the deformed shape to see the total amount of movement, or view the deformed shape by itself. You can also create an animation sequence of the structure’s movement that shows the motion of the structure in a series of frames, based on what the analysis code has predicted the model will do. You can animate a model using displacement results as well as any vector result, such as eigenvectors, shape, and velocity, by defining the vector in the Deformed panel.
