Power Tools GUI Tutorial


This tutorial demonstrates using the Power Tools on the CUBIT GUI for geometry decomposition and cleanup. The following features will be covered:

Each of these steps is described in detail in the following sections. For this tutorial you will need to have a basic understanding of the CUBIT GUI functionality, including how to select entities, maneuver in the graphics window, operate the Control Panel, and use toolbars. If you have not already done so, we recommend completing the Basic Tutorial first. The following image shows the geometry that will be used for this tutorial.

NOTE: Many of the steps in this tutorial include operations on specific entities which are identified by ID. When the solid modeling kernal is updated in Cubit the ID space may change. As such, you may not be able to rely on the IDs specified in this tutorial. Please look at the associated graphics to determine which entity/ID is being referred to.
