Hi everyone, new LS-DYNA user here! I have to model a battery cell (Sony 18650). It is made by a repetition of separators, electrodes ecc. that i modelled as shell elements. So there is a repetitive unit that i want to take advantage of. I have to repeat this unit (represented in the picture) a number of times. I found that the command offset in element tool may help me, but i'm not sure. 

First i would like to know what  the options transfer and advanced refer to; then do you think that this command can help me?

Thank you and greetings from italy!

Francesco

Hey @francesco-curzio

Sorry for the delayed response. That offset option will only offset the elements inward or outward from their position. What you want is to go to Transform in the Element Toolbar, Translate (or rotate), pick the direction and distance you want to copy the elements, and click the "Copy Elem" option which will make duplicates of your selection at this interval. You can also increase the number of copies in the "No. of copies:" selection. 

Again, sorry this is a few weeks old and you may have found a solution on your own by now.

Hello,

 

I have to do something similar where I have to make 1000 copies of a solid cylinder. Any ideas how I could do it? (it would be in a hexagonal distribution, like in attached picture)
