What is a Flexible Body? What is the difference between Flexibly body and Automatic Flex?

  • In Motion, you can add flexibility to a motion body. You can represent the deformation of the motion body either by discretizing the volume using a finite element method or using an analytical calculation based on the beam theory formulation using the spline beam method. 
  • Using the Flexible Body , which lets you either use different solvers and solutions to define the flexible body model in Pre/Post or import a Simulation or results file from an external application.

Using the Automatic Flex, which automates the process of creating a finite element flexible body.
