  1. Sorry, I don't know what happen with you, but it works well for me.
  2. Beam forces are presented always within Elemental system. No sense to show them in Global system.
  3. So this importation feature is not available for Student release then.
  4. Don't make TET mesh with this simple geometry!!! Here's the best way to go:
  5. @Joel Rodarte : The efforts of Beam were computed & presented often within elemental system. No sense to get beam efforts within global system.
  6. @Alex Nguyen : Refine your mesh!
  7. Compute d1 Compute d2 Look for intersection d1 & d2 Radius = distance OA or OB or OC ==> It's time for homework!
  8. Do you try to search with Google yet? Try: http://code.activestate.com/lists/activetcl/2550/ Thank you Google!
  9. Have a look the script "default_component.tcl" within "hm/scripts/browser". Maybe you found some good idea to code.
  10. Share your model?
  11. I don't know where's this script. But by checking .SES file, I found the format is simple. So you can write yourself the script :-)
  12. As you can see on my screenshot: it works!
  13. I make a closed surface mesh firstly and fill with Tetra mesh.
  14. It's normal. In big closed volume, you have 327 elems with "aspect" > 20 !!! Again, when you have a bad (see very bad) surface mesh, you risk having error with filling tetra elems.
  15. The first thing to understand: STL can be used directly as FE mesh, but not always. STL is a presentation format, firstly. So surface presentation is based on triangulation as triangulaire mesh. But at the quality level, it's not the same. In your case, your STL model is maybe good enough for surface presentation but not for EF meshing. So you have to do alot of work on this STL before doing 3D mesh on it. Good luck!
  16. You got high stress level, because your structure, your load. Penta elements are also as good as another element type. At your place, I'll check this high stress value to see if it's a physical value? or a numerical value?
  17. Do you're speaking about surface or solid mesh?
  18. Within your Hyperworks's installation, you have every thing (help, tuto,...) to start.
