For the tracheomalacia model, update mechanical properties and update the solution.

The following video shows how to update the geometry to do the modifications for the tracheotomy model.


  • For the tracheotomy case, save the original project as a new wbpz using File > Archive and modify that geometry.
  • Once you have modified the geometry in Workbench, right-click on Model and select Refresh to bring in the new geometry into Mechanical.
  • When creating planes and in general, you often have to hit Esc multiple times to exit the option when done. Otherwise, extra planes will be created.
