Hi, I need to remesh a model of a structure containing a lot of panels with stringers. When I use the "automesh" tool I can only control the mesh of the panels but the stringers (bars) don't change. For example, my initial stringer is between the nodes 1 and 2, but when i remesh the panel, the stringer is between the nodes 1 and 4, and i need the stringer to be all along the panel, so it should be one bar between 1 and 2, another between 2 and 3 , and finally another between 3 and 4. How can I do this? Thanks.
Hi, I am a newbie with HyperMesh and I do not really know how to do this... I am trying to model a thin thickness semisphere with a shell mesh but the middle of the semisphere it has to be meshed with 3D elements for crack analysis purpose. It will be very useful if someone knows how to create a mesh of the midsurface and how to convert a part of that mesh to a HEX mesh, or an alternative method to do this because I am really lost with this. If the model is for example a planar plate, it is very easy to do this defining two different parts, a midsurface and a solid part,but with curved objects I am having trouble... Regards. Gus.
