  1. I believe I have ran into a bug, unless someone has a different explanation. When I use solid map it shows me the 2D mesh that will be used to create the 3D mesh. Upon mesh creation however the mesh is highly distorted and inaccurate. I thought it was the tight geometry near the stop, but this does not seem to be the issue as the same problem occurs if I toggle the edges.
  2. HyperMesh v12 and Abaqus 6.13-1. I am unsure of updates since its the university copy.
  3. Sets did export as needed just did not show up in interface. Can still be selected by using sets in crack creation menu
  4. I am trying to import my model into abaqus and create a contour integral crack card. I am having issues with getting abaqus to import the entity set from hypermesh. Does anyone know a way to get this entity set to import into abaqus so that I can simply select it as the node set instead of selecting each node individually? Thank you
  5. I believe I found the answer here. http://forum.altairhyperworks.com/index.php?/topic/71-does-hypermesh-support-abaqus-assembly/?hl=%2Bcontact+%2Bsurface+%2Bexport#entry252
  6. I have a model that is composed of a large tetrameshed section with a square removed and hex meshed. I need to tie these components together in abaqus using surfaces, but when I import into abaqus it combines the two sections into one part making it difficult to select the individual surfaces. Is there a way to get hypermesh to export these two sections as individual parts and/or is there a way to define surface sets in hypermesh that will import into abaqus? Thank you, -Clay
  7. I simply used a reflect command and equivalenced these nodes to finish it. Still interested in an answer as to why these were considered not valid mappable regions.
  8. This method worked great for half my model, but when I try and mesh the other have it say "no valid mappable left" but all of the remaining solids are still mappable. I have attached an image to show the issue. Very odd
  9. Trying to avoid jumping the gun but I think not knowing the associate command has been my problem! That is a very powerful and useful tool. I will post back when I finish this mesh, but so far everything is looking great! Thank you!
  10. Hello, I have been up all night trying to figure out an issue with no luck. Image 1 shows the mesh that I wish to solid map. This mesh was created using automesh for the outer rings and edit element -> create for the two inner rings (shown better in image2). The issue I am having is when I choose to use multi-solid, the inner two meshes aren't recognized and a new mesh is created over the one I build manually (image3 clearly shows both meshes, the program is acting like it doesn't know the original is there). When I attempt to reject this mesh it tells me that there is "nothing to reject", but then when I go to make a new mesh it says "reject previous mesh". Image4 shows the full geometry I am working with and image5 shows the section I am mentioning now. A Solid Map -> Line Drag does work, but this method does not line up with the other meshes when the rest of the component is solid mapped and cannot be equivalenced because the distance is too great and causes element collapse. It seems to me there should be an easy way for the program to do this, but I'm starting to see a trend in the software not being able to handle intricate meshes in a very efficient way. I have provided my file for anyone interested in looking at it. (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxFH4UMMBHuXZ3VEY0RmY0xpWTg/view?usp=sharing) Thank you, -Clay
  11. I believe this is exactly what I am looking for! I will need to play around with the feature to make sure I learn it correctly, but I it appears it will do the trick. Thank you!
  12. I am working in Abaqus. I wish for these meshes to be the same size, but I want them to be connected as the are actually imported as two separate solids. Each contour has 24 nodes around the outer and inner diameter and is only 1 element thick. I need to know if there is a way for Hypermesh to base the mesh of the unmeshed solids off of and connect to the meshed regions I have already created. Thank you
  13. I have almost fixed this issue. What I did was actually section the components off in the 3D modeling software and made an assembly with the pieces. I am now facing an issue however where hypermesh does not seem to realize that I wish for these components to be meshed together, and not have meshes independent of each other. The image below shows an example of the software not using the existing neighboring mesh. This image is exaggerated and doesn't match the actual mesh dimensions I am looking for, but I wanted to show the high contrast between the regions. This seems to me like it would be an easy fix, but I am not familiar enough with the program yet to know the method. Thank you
  14. This method was also a flop. It actually gave worse results than the previous methods as far as not bringing in the sketched circles is concerned.
  15. I am going to attempt deleting my sketches in the 3D software, scaling the model to 1000x, then redoing the sketches
