  1. Your PSOLID property (ID=2) references to material ID=4 which does not exist. So check your materials definition.
  2. Try this code and tell us if it works? *createmarkpanel nodes 1 "Select node" set node1 [hm_getmark nodes 1] *createmarkpanel surfaces 1 "Select surface" set surf_id [hm_getmark surfaces 1] *createmark nodes 1 $node1 *duplicatemark nodes 1 0 hm_createmark nodes 1 -1 set node2 [hm_getmark nodes 1] *createmark nodes 1 $node2 *markprojectnormallytosurface nodes 1 $surf_id set d12 [lindex [split [hm_getdistance nodes $node1 $node2 0] " "] 0] puts [format "Thickness= %0.3f" $d12]
  3. I'm not sure Optistruct (and another FEA softs like Ansys, Abaqus,...) can do contact analyse at microscopic level.
  4. Try to define environment variable ALTAIR_LICENSE_PATH=<full path to altair_lic.dat> ?
  5. You found it in Hyperworks help (path from my Windows installation): file:///C:/Program Files/Altair/2019/help/altair_help/topics/getting_started/hw_licensing_hwd_application_unit_draw_r.htm?zoom_highlightsub=HWU
  6. Keep in your mind that not every STL file could be used for FEA. STL is used firstly for surface presentation, not for FEA.
  7. When you buy 1 HWU, you'll see COUNT=1000 within license file. So COUNT = <HWU number> x 1000
  8. It's possible. But why you need this kind of mesh? Special analysis?
  9. @SergioV: You have 445 elements with aspect ratio > 20! So please make correction of your 2D mesh before filling 3D.
  10. In this case, you can split your comp1 into comp1a, comp1b,... Make equivalent of nodes by choosing elements by collector.
  11. If you can't see anything wrong, how we can see something without your model?
  12. There're alot of comments in exported Nastran BDF. Often they're one,two or some lines. So export HM comments as include file is possible, but NOT a smart idea.
  13. Menu : "Geometry" => Create => Surface => From EF When you have closed surfaces, you can create Solid.
  14. Page "Tool" (not menu Tool). In bottom of interface, you have several pages: Geom, 1D, 2D, 3D, Analysis, Tool, Post
  15. Here's HM model: Cuneiforme_1_PP_D.hm
  16. Before meshing: Press "o" => mesh => element order = second After meshing: 3D page => order change
  17. CAD surface from .INP Abaqus file, are you sure?
  18. You could run job by that way. But it's NOT a good idea bypassing the Cluster's Job scheduler. Myself I'm HPC Cluster admin, so I know what you have to do. My best advice for you is asking your Cluster admin.
  19. Normally on any cluster system, you have a "Job scheduler" like SGE, Moab, PBS,... So you have to run your job through this such system. Ask your Cluster admin.
