You can change the colors of the PTC Creo Simulate entities. Entities are grouped into the types listed below:
• Modeling Entity
• Load and Constraint
• AutoGEM and FEM Mesh
• Simulate Results
Under Modeling Entity, for example, you can change the colors for Shell, Beam, Mass, Crack, Weld, and so on. If you mesh an object, you will see the colors representing the solid mesh elements in the Graphics window. Click File ▶ Options ▶ System Colors and then under AutoGEM and FEM Mesh, you can see the colors that currently represent Wedge Element and Brick Element. If you change these colors in the PTC Creo Simulate Options dialog box, the colors in the model change immediately. To keep these new colors click OK and these are the colors you will see in future sessions. You can customize your environment based on your preferences.

This tutorial demonstrates how to create a Transient Thermal Analysis. The Transient Thermal Analysis will show how long it would take a piece of sheet metal at 800 degrees Celsius to reach a temperature of 60 degrees Celsius so that it is safe to touch. This tutorial also shows how to format the results graph in order to change different aspects of the graph. ... (Show more)(Show less)
