  1. I figured it out!! 1. Change the substep for one of your windows (the active window is the one that was last left-clicked) 2. Right-click in that same window and select "Apply Style" > "Select Options" 3. In the new dialogue window that opens, select the "Apply to:" and select "All Pages" 4. Check/Uncheck all attributes you want to apply to all. Note the Icons at the bottom of the window that give check/uncheck options (above the "default button") Note the "Results Steps" will change the substep to be consistent across all windows. 5. Click Apply! Cheers guys!
  2. Hey guys, In Hypermesh, under the Ansys User Profile; I cannot seem to figure out how to show shell thickness offsets. Example: 1. I apply a thickness of .5" to a Shell181 group of elements 2. I change the Section Property SECOFFSET optio to TOP / BOTTOM / USER instead of MID 3. Hypermesh still shows the thickness at the middle of the element. To parallel this, I know that the Nastran user profile will correctly display Nastran imposed ZOFFs applied to PSHELL cards. This is the desired affect I am looking for graphically in Hypermesh for the Ansys User Profile. Does anyone know how to view the thickness offsets applied with SECOFFSET in Ansys? Thank you, -aero
  3. Hey guys, thanks for your replies, I appreciate it! @Pranav Hari I am strictly working with geometry for this issue, but thanks for the reply. @Mario I am currently working in Hypermesh 2014, so I don't have the Mesh/Geometry Appearance dialogue; only Mesh Appearance. Does the "Solid Edge Width" slider also apply to surface edges? Or only solid body edges? Thank you, -Aerokid
  4. Hey friends, Is there a way to change the display thickness of surface edges? I want the following edges to display thicker: 1. Free Edges 2. Suppressed Edges 3. Shared Edges 4. T-Junctions I may be mistaken, but I thought that I have displayed these lines thicker before. Thanks for your help!! -Aerokid
  5. I noticed that! I was wondering why this was. Other comments (if I comment a range of GRIDS) don't stay. I had a MAT1 card that I commented, and the comment stayed, but my comments above my GRIDS were deleted. Is there a way to "trick" HM to keep the comments on the GRIDS?
  6. Thanks for you replies guys, I'll look at those options! The files I am editing have large revision comments. I need to keep them when I import and export: i.e. " Date, Revision Number, comments about revision " " Date, Revision Number, comments about revision " etc. Thanks again for you replies, if you think of other options, let me know!
  7. Hey everyone, I have a .bdf file (the solver deck file required for NASTRAN). Hypermesh creates this file by the export process. My work requires that I edit the .bdf text, but also use the graphical features of Hypermesh. I would like to find a way of retaining user-added comments in the .bdf. Let me explain: 1. Create mesh 2. Export as .bdf 3. Comment the .bdf file appropriately -BUT- 4. When I re-import to HM and export, my comments are removed. Is there a way to keep them? Hypermesh will keep comments that are attached to material properties (for example, if I add a comment to a MAT1 card, they will stay with import/export) Thanks for any help!
  8. Hello everyone, I am new to Hypermesh and have a question regarding the ZOFFS option. Also, as an understanding check, can you verify that I understand the hierarchy correctly: Understanding Check: The hierarchy is as follows Component, Property, Material, System, etc. Properties must have a Material assigned (to supply to the component) Properties must have an Element Type assigned (to supply to the component) Correct? Question: I cannot see the ZOFFs option in the Properties Card Edit. I have selected elements and assigned them their element types (CQUAD4 fo example). But when I go to add a ZOFF in the Property Card Edit window, the option does not show. From what I have read online, it seems it should show on the property Card Edit. It does however show if go to Element Card Edit, select elements, click "edit". Other info: I am using PSHELLS, assigned to the Property. I am in the Nastran profile. I want to make sure that I am setting everything up correctly. Thank you for your help!
