  • Figure 1 – Group Interface


This interface is used to create and manipulate groups of parts. Often this interface is used to create groups that represent subsystems in a complex system. For example a model with two dummies, a vehicle, a deformable barrier, front seats, rear seats, etc… can be grouped. These groups can be saved to a file for later retrieval in subsequent post-processing sessions. Groups can be added to another group or subtracted form a composite group.

The grouping facility is somewhat similar to the Views Interface, except here group is a collection of entire parts. Its usage has similar applications in results presentation where typically a large amount of information needs to be conveyed to the audience in a limited time.
