With SOLIDWORKS Simulation you can display the mesh and results of shells using a 3D representation of shell bodies. There is a new option to display the thickness of shells in result plots (stress, displacement, and strain) and when viewing the mesh. To view the results on a 3D representation of shell bodies, in a Stress Plot, Displacement Plot, or Strain Plot Property Manager, under Advanced Options, select Render shell thickness in 3D (slower).
The shell thickness displayed in the plots is the value defined in the Shell Definition Property Manager. The orientation of thickness is displayed with relation to the midsurface of the shell, as defined by the offset value (Shell Definition Property Manager).
For stress plots, results for the top and bottom shell faces are shown. Results are linearly interpolated across the shell thickness. When probing stress plots, both the top and bottom shell values are displayed.
