I'd like to share the seamless integration that Compose with other HyperWorks applications, such as HyperMesh and OptiStruct.
In order to expose the Compose function to other HyperWorks applications, we need to register the function. This is done clicking on the right mouse button on Register Function in Compose:
After this step, we may now see that the function has been registered under the same mouse click shown above under Show Registered Functions button. Once it is registered, we may now use it inside other HyperWorks softwares, and the function will be available without the need for closing and reopening the application of interest.
Example in HyperMesh:
Why Compose and HyperMesh? Matrix Browser queries and modifies HyperMesh and HyperView data entities without writing cumbersome TCL coding, along with a Math method developed in Compose.
Example in HyperGraph:
Why Compose and HyperGraph? Plotting capabilities of HyperGraph are expanded with Compose’s advanced functions and custom procedures developed by the user.
Example in HyperView:
Why Compose and HyperView? Advanced post-processing or special mathematical approaches may be applied directly on the model.
Example in HyperStudy:
Add a new output response
Define a new expression
Use your custom Compose function
Why Compose and HyperStudy? User-defined functions to perform design exploration and optimization.
Example in OptiStruct:
Why Compose and OptiStruct? User-defined functions to perform optimization with DRESP3 card (desired response based on external files).
