  1. Hello everyone! I checked the script exchange and could not find or maybe its because I don't fully understand the tcl files. What I am looking for is a tcl script that exports nodal coordinates (sorted by Node ID), element connectivities and Tensor Format Components (From GPSTRESS so nodal Stresses). I need to be able to change from XX, XY, XZ to YY, YX, YZ or ZZ, XZ, YZ. I attached my "tries" and the tcl-scripts for elementConnectivity and Node Coord work, but the tensor script returns an empty file -.- For writing those I used the Script exchange, so I did not fully understand what I was doing there. My perfect solution would be a script that does not require Hyperview to be opened. I'd like to do my modeling and FE calculations in Hypermesh and than "just read out" the .h3d-File to get the nodal coordinates, nodal Tensor Components and element connectivities as csv files. I know that normally I would use help files and work myself into the subject, but it really isn't easy to find proper resources to get all the information. That is why I'd be more than super grateful if you guys could give me a hint or help in any way! Thanks a lot in advance!

  2. Ohhkaaayy!!! I made progress ;D I am now haveing the full model within hyperview! And I can make a contour plot from my grid point stresses! Somehow th set and group definitions where gone after saving the model... I guess that this was some problem with my computer... but I have no idea tbh^^
  3. Hmm I only get to chosse between Grid Point Stresses and Element Stresses. I checked if yomething went wrong when saving the model, but still is set to CONTF,Type=ALL... Anything else I could have done wrong?I Attached pictures of the Contact surfaces in bolt and nut. maybe that helps?!...
  4. Hi Rahul R, thanks for your answer! You are right, I haven't checked that. I now did (see attached file), what you said but still I don't get proper results. Looks like the second attached picture...
  5. Hi everyone, I want to model a "simple" Flange Contact as Displayed in the attached picture. I apply a Surface Force of 500 Newton to that round surface on top in the picture. The diameter of that surface is 40mm. After simulation I can't display any proper results in Hyperview even though it outputs "anaylsis complete" and no errors at all. I need to read out GPSTRSS to export it to Paraview and to some Stream tracing with it, but I can't get anything out of Hyperview. The second picture is what hyperview shows when loading the h3d-File from hypermesh (using optistruct). Any ideas? Am I doing something stupidly wrong? Thanks a lot on advance! Asaad
  6. Hi everyone, I never used TCL/TK to control any Hyperworks Product, but I need to Query big sets of Data with Hyperview. Doing so in GUI Mode crashes the system, because of my 66mio nodes I guess. So I wanted to write a script and export these Results (NodeID, NodeCoordinates and GridPointStress) without opening the GUI. My biggest probelm is that I don't know where to start. I can't start building a TCL Script with the reference Guide because how am I supposed to know what command does what I want. Is there a possibility to record a macro within Hyperview and read that out as a tcl file? Or a similar process, to get an idea how tcl works with hyperview. Thanks a lot! Asaad
  7. Yes thank you, that works! So after Querying my results and importing them into a vtk File for Paraview, I get a distorted surface. Because of that I checked the element connectivity and it appeared that there were two kinds of elements within my model. How can I make sure to only have one type of element being used in my model? In my model I get 58767 Elements with 10 Nodes (210-Config) and 489 with two nodes (2-Config). The elements consisting of two nodes are not actually visible and their nodes are superimposed (placed on each other). That is confusing and I am not sure whats the use of it and if it might be the problem for my distorted volumes. Additionally it might be interesting to know that if I am displaying the imported nodes in paraview there is no problem and no distortion. So the problem has to be somewhere within the element definition.
  8. Hi everybody, I created a Model with Inspire and exported the resutls as an *.fem-file. Trying to import this file into hyperview leads to a crash of hyperview. Then I imported the fem- and the .stmod-file created by inspire into optistruct. Saving this model and trying to import this file into hyperview leads to a crash of hyperview. Calculating the before saved model (.hm-file) leads to a new .fem-file. Trying to import this file into hyperview leads to a crash of hyperview. Trying to import the model-file (.hm-file) file into hyperview leads to a crash of hyperview. And I had it working before with a slightly different model.... and as I am working in a department where there are several different computers I was able to test this on different work stations. What I want to do is, that I want to create a model, calculate the stress and the export it with the "query results" function in Hyperview. Any ideas? I'd be grateful for any kind of hint! best, asaad
  9. Aaaah! Smart ;D Thank you! When you to that tensor plot for Grid Point Stresses (Global) it shows the Order (XX YY ZZ XY YZ ZX) in the plot window in the upper left above the colour scale^^ To obvious to be found there
  10. Thank you Margit!!! I will need to have a source for that for my documentation. Do you know where to find something proper? I couldn't find this information in the altair help files..
  11. Talking about the output of stress results: When I use the query tool in hyperview and export the node id, node corrdinates and Tensor(Grid Point Stresses (Global)) I receive 6 Values for the Tensor. In what order are these values? Or asked the other way around: Is XX, XY, YY, YZ, ZX,ZZ correct or is it another order? Thanks a lot!
  12. Starting from the attached topic, I was able to find a way to visualize my load flow/force flow by creating an expression "Vector from Scalar". Browsing through several publications I found the neccessary Tensor-Elements to combine my force in x-,y- and z-direction. fx = [SigmaXX, TauXY, TauXZ] fy = [TauYX, SigmaYY, TauYZ] fz = [TauZX, TauZY, SigmaZZ] Following the above my expression for fx looks like this: VectorFromScalar(T1.C1, T1.C4, T1.C6) T1.C1 is Table Component XX T1.C4 is Table Component XY T1.C6 is Table Component ZX All three chosen from "Table: Element Stresses (2D & 3D)" Now I need to verify that this is actually what I want^^ So please let me know what you would interpret from this visualization. To get more insight I'll tell you what I am heading for: The Idea is to analyze complex structures referring to the flow/flux of force. This can be very helpful in finding working surface pairs or their connecting channel and support structures within non-obvious structures. Thank you for your help! I am happy for anykind of answer!! Asaad
  13. Hi, so I am facing a problem concerning the Principal Tensor directions P1 P2 P3 when it comes to visualization in Hyperview. What I need is a vector P1+P2+P3 to get the direction of force through the material. Is there any possibility to make some sort of customized Vector visualization? Thanks in advance!
  14. I don't have permission to view your *.jpg... But I was able to find a solution with Hyperview and tensors! I would like to see your uploaded jpg anyway... could you give me rights or send it via pm? thank you! asaad
