    Export solver deck to WORKBENCH

    @Premanand Suryavanshi: Can you make out the difference between Ansys format supported by Hypermesh & Ansys Workbench? The format supported by Hypermesh is Ansys Mechanical. Yes, we can import this such format into Ansys Workbench, but that're two different formats.

    Hypermesh - Define oblique forces

    You can define a local system. Then the force can be defined in this local system.

    Multi solids meshing issue

    I see you got already your mesh. So what's your issue? Share your model?

    3D Tetra Elements not showing in LS-PrePost/DYNA

    Keep "quads" at external faces and make "tet" in internal volume? That does not make sense from point of view of FEA !!!

    3D Tetra Elements not showing in LS-PrePost/DYNA

    You don't want trias at surface and you can not make pyramid for your LS-DYNA. So what do you do now then?
  6. Just write a Procedure with N1, N2, N3 & base point as arguments. Within this procedure, you compute the normal vector and call *createplane :-)

    3D Tetra Elements not showing in LS-PrePost/DYNA

    Pyramid elements are supported in LS-DYNA, but Hypermesh can not export them to DYNA key output. I have to play with template to add this element type.

    Powerpoint interaction

    Maybe try in your TCL script: after taking the images, create a VBScript to insert them into PPT? You can execute a VBScript from TCL.

    TCL script to load points and forces

    Before talking about your code, my question: how do you do with your loaded nodes? How to link to your mesh? your structure?
  11. UNV is dying format in FE world. Why need this format?

    3d meshing support needed

    Share your model?

    Samcef results in Hyperview

    Yes, use the tool "sam2h3d" of SAMCEF software to convert your SAMCEF's results into H3D format.

    HyperMesh Surface Mesh Import Error in AcuSolve

    Yes, I see. I don't know Nastran has CFD (Fluent) format.

    HyperMesh Surface Mesh Import Error in AcuSolve

    Nastran? Do you mean Ansys?
