  1. Hi SL experts, I am new to Simlab and like mesh control mesh in SL very much. It helps me save a lot of time to create solid mesh for complex geometry (a lot of small fillet and tiny surface). But I when manually fix some small elements, I do not know which is the best functions? I use Collapse edge but take a lot of time. Sometimes, I use GRID mesh. Could you recommend which SL functions to fix this faster? Thanks.
  2. Hello everyone, May I know how to run Flux job on Linux CentOS command line? Thank you
  3. Hi HX experts, I can run Radioss/Optistruct jobs on Linux by going to :Altair/2018/hwsolvers/scripts then type: ./Optistruct "C:/test.fem" -nt 8. But I do not know how to run HX jobs with 2 input files: *.grf and *.hx. Could you advise? My cluster has 4 nodes (125x4 GB RAM), so I think I can run in-core solutions to get the result faster right? Could you advise how to run in-core? Thank you.

    How to run Acusolve on Linux commands?

    Hi Acupro, Based on your instruction, I already could run Acusolve on PBS commands. Thanks a ton.

    How to run Acusolve on Linux commands?

    Hi AcuPro, Now I am trying to submit Acusolve jobs via PBS command. #!/bin/bash #PBS -N Optistruct_Test_1 #PBS -l select=1:ncpus=24:mem=60GB $ALTAIR_HOME/ Acusolve/Linux64/bin/acuRun -inp "1.inp" -nt 14 But it does not generate any things. I can do the same with Optistruct easily.

    How to run Acusolve on Linux commands?

    Hi acupro, Now I already can run Acusolve on Linux cluster successfully. We can close this topic. Few mistakes I learnt here are: 1) Firstly, I need to CD(change directory) to ...Altair/2019/Acusolve/Linux64/bin 2) I have to define "-pdir". The input data must be: a) *.inp file b) Meshing folder "HYPERMESH.DIR" 3) I have to update license.

    How to run Acusolve on Linux commands?

    Hi Acupro, Thanks for your advice but I do the same as your instruction and face the below errors: acuRun: Log is redirected to: demo.1.Log acuRun: *** ERROR: error occurred executing acuPrep acuRun: Fri Mar 29 23:12:09 2019
  8. Hi Acusolve Experts, I can submit Acusolve jobs via command windows. However, I have to run from AcuSolve Cmd Prompt, not directly from Windows cmd. Then I do not know how to run on Linux CentO.S Could you advise for this case? Thank you!
  9. Hello Stamping simulation experts, I see many stamping simulation products in Altair Hyperworks. Anyone can share what is the difference b/w Hyperform and Inspire Form. Based on my understand, Inspire Form is easier to use than HF but I do not know how they mesh and solver running inside?
  10. Hi, When I record the filling animation video, there is warning message "incompatible with graphic cards" although my machine has same graphic card as my colleague's one. Could any one give me some advice for this? Thank you
  11. Hello C2C experts, I am doing casting simulation with carbon steel material. But I found only 2 types: AISI-1008 & 1026. Could you advise how to do if I want to simulate AISI-1030? Thank you.

    Problem with .stl filles

    Most of casting software use STL import (3D scan data). But you can use Inspire Cast to import step/parasolid/... files with good geometry quality. Another method I overcome this issue for complex geometry (scan data) by using Simlab or HM to create good mesh >> export to STL >> Click2Cast.

    Cannot open 2nd HM session

    Thanks Tinh for your advice. I cannot open 2nd session even wait for hours. Actually, I already called Altair Support and found this issue only happen in user account (not full writing permission). Admin account is fine. This bug was fixed in v2017.2.2. We can close this topic.
  14. Hello HM experts, My Hypermesh(v2017.2) and my colleagues recently have had a serious issue. We cannot open 2nd HM session, we can open only one. I checked on Task manager and saw few opengl.exe running in process tab but the size is smaller (~250 MB) than the 1st one. Could you have any comments and advice how to solve this issue? Thank you!
  15. Hi HF, I am new to Inspire Form(IF( and try to use it. But I cannot found where and how to input cushion force in IF. Same as for Friction parameters in IF. Any comments and advice are very much appreciated. Thank you coud
