With the Generate Analysis System command, an analysis system is created using finite elements and analysis can be made on the analysis model. When the Analysis+Design command is used, the pre-analysis analysis system is automatically created. The Generate Analysis System command gives the opportunity to examine the rod and shell finite elements and connection (link) elements created in accordance with the solid model before analysis+design.

Location of Generate Analysis System Command

You can access it from the ribbon menu, Analysis and Design tab , under the Analysis heading .

Analysis models for various situations are shown in the image below.

While analyzing+design is being done using the Analysis and Design (F9) command, the program automatically creates the analysis system and then performs the analysis+design.
