This video focuses on the objects that the optimizer adjusts during the optimization. These include banded tendon polylines, distributed tendon quadrilaterals, and profile polylines. The video demonstrates how to prepare these objects for optimization and modeling tips for improving the optimization results.
This video focuses on optimization regions. It demonstrates how they are modeled, why they are necessary, and how they affect the optimizable objects.
This video focuses on running the optimization and reviewing the results. The video demonstrates how optimizations are started, discusses the settings that control the process, and shows how to review and load results into the model.
