Configuring the Result Colors

 

The results color-map legend is automatically displayed in the graphic area (each color represents a value range). You can drag and drop it anywhere in the work area for a better visualization of results. Advance Design allows you to configure the results color map using a large set of options.

The decision whether the results are to be presented in this form or in colors on member axes, depends on whether the Display results in full shape option available in the Options tab is active.

Displaying values together with isoregions

During the graphical presentation of results for surface elements (slabs/walls), the presentation of values can also be activated when displaying the results as color maps (isoregions). This allows for a simultaneous presentation of map results with maximum values in each finite element.
