Undeformed Geometry

Undeformed geometry is also affected by the section cuts. This is helpful in studying and comparing the cross section changes of the deformed and undeformed structure, due to any external loads or boundary conditions applied to the model.

The undeformed geometry display state and its properties are set using the options in the Deformed panel. An example of a section cut on undeformed geometry (red) versus the deformed structure (blue) is displayed in the image below:
