  1. Hello, see my comment above. Try to use AUTOSPC=YES. Best Regards, Mario
  2. Hello, Normally Hypermesh converts directional vectors into orientation nodes. This is not a problem. In Hyperview these then appear as "Orphan Nodes". You can just turn it off. Orphan Nodes have nothing to do with rigid modes. Normally these should be "auto-constraint" in any case. Icon "Entity Attributes"-> select "Orphan-Grids-> Display: Off Best Regards, Mario
  3. Hello, Normally, the connection should be mapped correctly with "shared" edges (green lines, mixed visualization) at geometry level. See first picture. If you are using the automesher, then all lines are shared and you will see only one density value / shared edge. If you are meshing the surfaces step by step they will be also connected. See picture 2. You can check the connection by: Tools->edges->Find edges and correct it by equivalence, if there are nodes not connected. See picture 3: Best Regards, Mario
  4. Hi Rod, When opening the file I get the error message which I attach as a picture. It seems there are a lot of broken elements in the model. See pic 2. I have saved the model, also attached. I'm using HM 2017.3. Best Regards, Mario TP_Assembly_Step_1_Rev_A2.hm
  5. Hello JM, There is also the elegant way via the options: Preferences->Options. Here you can switch the scaling and/or dialog on or off. See picture. You'll find it in the Hypergraph client. Best Regards, Mario
  6. Hello, You have to switch the correct snap filters on/off. Try to switch on only snap to endpoint and snap to tangent. Be sure to switch off snap to grid. Best Regards, Mario
  7. Hello, Normally you should output your curves into binouts (otherwise you have only the number of points from d3plot). You have to specify which type of output you need, e.g. displacements and forces. Both types are written as function over time (as standard). Create two curves over time (displacements, forces) and create a third one with your displacement as X axis and your force as Y axis. ->Define Curves->Add->Type Math->Select curves (button)->Change index x (for x=) into y (see picture) Best Regards, Mario
  8. Hi, This is a lot more complicated. You can try the following: Create your derived load case 1 Switch on the needed contour (P1) Export model, including results (File->Export->Model) .. e.g. P1.h3d Create your derived load case 2 Switch on the needed contour (P3) Export model, including results (File->Export->Model) .. e.g. P3.h3d Open expression builder Add resources (Open first P1.h3d, than P3.h3d) Select the element stresses P1 (now scalar) and insert, press Minus Select the element stresses P3 (now scalar) and insert The result is simple: S1-S2 I can't try it at the moment, but please give me a feedback. Best regards, Mario
  9. Hello Hugo_C, Try to insert LCx in front, x is the load case number. See the following syntax: Table address aliases use a four-section dot-separated list that breaks down the address by load case/frame, data type, component, and layer: LCnFn.{S|V|T}n.Cn.Ln Where: n = index (load case index, frame index, table index, component index, etc.) LC = load case F = frame (simulation step) {S|V|T} = Scalar, Vector, Tensor C = Component (valid only for vector or tensor tables). L = Layer index It looks like this: LC1.T1.C9-LC2.T1.C7 or without alias: ("LC1.Element Stresses (2D & 3D).P3 (minor)"-"LC2.Element Stresses (2D & 3D).P1 (major)") P1 is major!? Best Regards, Mario
  10. Hello, I am no longer allowed to send messages. Are there any reasons for this? See attached picture. Best Regards, Mario
  11. Hi, I have the same message. Is the h3d format no longer supported? Best Regards, Mario
  12. Hello, you can try to use a "Spot" for a region to apply boundary conditions and loads. See attached picture. And as Ken has already noted, use more passes and use "Adapt to feature". Best Regards, Mario
  13. Hello, Dynamically changing the legend for a static analysis makes little sense. It makes much more sense to display the contour plots dynamically. You can do that by turning on the contour panel-> display-> interpolate colors. (see picture) Best regards, Mario
  14. Hello, In the help you can read that STL is mesh based and therefore no geometry format. I do not know that you can automatically convert it to geometry in Inspire.

  15. Hello, You have to switch on the corner stress results ("Use corner data"). Be sure that the result file also includes the corner stresses, e.g. STRESS(H3D,ALL,CORNER) = ALL Best Regards, Mario
