New: Create a new design study.
Open: Open an existing design study.
Open View Settings: Open a view settings file. (This is accessible when results are displayed.)
Save: Save the current design study, including all designs and scenarios.
Save Image: Saves several standard format image files (.gif, .tif, .bmp, .jpg)
Save Dynamic Image: Saves a Dynamic Image (.vtfx) for use with the Autodesk® Simulation CFD Viewer. It can also be viewed in PowerPoint. Unlike a traditional image, this format is navigable, and can contain animation.
Save the view to a Summary Image by selecting Capture summary image. This adds it to the Design Review Center branch of the Decision Center.
Save View Settings: Saves a results view settings file for future use.
Previous (view) and Next (view): Undo and redo the orientation, zoom, and model position.
The model is shown filled.
The outline of the model is shown.
The model is shown transparently.
View Mesh as Wireframe
The mesh lines are shown
Displays the mesh on surfaces. Blank outer parts to show the mesh on internal surfaces.
Peel by Surface
Toggles between hiding surfaces or volumes while results are displayed.
Z-Clip and Crinkle Cut
Shows the interior of the model.
If results are displayed, shows a three-dimensional interior view of the analysis mesh.
Center of Rotation: Open the Rotation point Control dialog to change the center of rotation of the model. A sphere is drawn on the model to show the center of rotation while this dialog is open.
Standard Views and Incremental Rotation: Open the Standard Views dialog to:
Reset View: Click this to return the model to its default orientation and location.
Zoom to Fit: Rescale the model to fit entirely in the Graphics window. The orientation is preserved, and the model is centered.
Zoom to Visible Entities: Rescale the non-hidden parts of the model to fit entirely in the Graphics window.
One-Time Zoom: After clicking this icon, hold down the left mouse button and drag a box around the region to zoom. Release the button when finished dragging. Click the icon to zoom again.
Synchronous Navigation: Unify navigation in multiple view ports. Ensures the orientation, location, and zoom are the same across all view ports. Navigation commands affect all ports simultaneously.
Navigation Cube: This is located in the lower-left corner of the Graphics window.
Drop Shadow: Use the Drop Shadow to add an eye-catching accent to your results images. This provides the effect of a shadow below the model geometry.
Cut and Iso Labels: Every results plane and iso surface is displayed with a label. The number in the label matches the number in the Cut Surface and Iso Surface lists on the Results Task dialog.
Toggle Coordinate Axis and Number of Increments: Enable the display of the model coordinate axis and the axis bounding box.
Control the number of increments with the up and down arrows.
Mirroring reflects the geometry about a plane.
Show Selection List
Restores the display of the Selection window (for setup tasks) or List window (for results tasks)
Click to open the Help System.
There are two modes--Online and Local:
Use the Online mode to search content on the Autodesk Simulation CFD Customer Portal. The Portal contains the latest Autodesk® Simulation CFD Help and other resources. Network connectivity is required.
Use the Local mode to search the Help system contain with your Autodesk Simulation CFD installation. This option provides access to the comprehensive Autodesk Simulation CFD Help System, and does not require network connectivity.
