  1. the student edition help may not contain this tutorial. Here is the file you need: MV-8050_ Using the Leaf Spring Builder.pdf Leaf_1.csv Leaf_2.csv Leaf_3.csv Leaf_4.csv
  2. How may cores are you tryng to run for the simulation ?? I think it may exceed the units you are allowed to use for your license. If not. please try go to "my document" folder, delete all file with "hm" it it name and reopen the file
  3. This error usually appear when you reopen an Motion View file which including Altair Diriver or some parts in Wizard library. It is due to wrong selection in attachment for systes or assembly. When I get this problem, I just ignore it and try run a test run. Usually, the problem will solve itself
  4. There are several tutorial about making script for Motion View. you can find out them in the help file. For example: MV-1040: Model Building using Tcl
  5. Hi, I am trying to do so. however I got some problem when trying to get the frame of the toolbar. May I ask where should I look for the commands to control HV frames
  6. Hi yehoo, When you use displacement as your input with a single value, that means you order the system to move "instantly" to the state of the displacement you have define at the time t=0. Usually, it is not recommended for transient problem. You should do that in case of static analyis. Changing to velocity is a good solution. Otherwise, if you still want to define the displacement as your desired, then you can create a .csv file to define displacement versus time data. use that file to create a curve and then use the curve to define the motion.
  7. For the problem the model did not move. May I know which kind of input you used in your model (force, displacement, velocity, .... ) ??
  8. Ok then, I have some suggestion: - Isolate components which you will use for the contact. perform the 2D outer mesh and delete all CAD and geometry information to avoid confusing Motion View reader. Usually, Motion View will read the mesh only if both mesh and geometry exist in the model. - Check if there is any free edge or T connection in your mesh ( I doubt that there may be some T connection in your model). - When create contact, make sure you set up red-side (contact side) for all contact. You can use highlight contact side check box to display and check. - Before run analysis, make sure the "no mesh errors" is disabled as in the picture. - If your contact has some problem, then the panel will appear as below: Use "highlight mesh errors" to check your problem. open edges will be highlighted with red color and for T connection will be blue color Hope this help!
  9. I don't think you should use an automatic mesh from Motion View since the mesh quality is very low. I believe you missed something in your mesh. Is it possible for you to share the meshed file??
  10. Hi, Is there any way in OptiStruct which I can use to write my an external code for my own algorithm. I am trying to come up with another approach to generate flexible body in .h3d format beside using just CB or CC method. (like using my own math algorithm for flexible body generation process). Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi, I am trying to write some tool in Motion View. I would like to add some new icons to the tool bar. Is there anyone know how to do that?? Motion View environment is similar as HyperView so I think there must be some ways to do so
  12. Hi, You can try other output format like .pch or .op2. Those file types could be read by HyperGraph
  13. Hi, It can be easily done by using hm_getmass command Please use HyperMesh reference guide for information. You also can find many useful information there for your tcl script
  14. Hi @rrishav Yes, I found the way to control the size and the position of the picture. You can do that directly when you import the picture with "AddPicture" command. below is what I have done in my code set slide_picture [$slide_shapes AddPicture [file nativename "$picture_folder/comp_$comp.bmp"] -1 -1 80 40 800 400] The last four numbers are used to control position (the distance to left and top of the slide) and the size (width and height) of the picture. Give it a try and you will see
