    Retain User Comments In NASTRAN .bdf File

    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?

    Retain User Comments In NASTRAN .bdf File

    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!
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
