  1. Have you watched the Arduino Series at Altair Embed website? It is a good source of information to start with: https://solidthinking.com/resource/9673/?weight=2 Regards, Roberta
  2. Unfortunately it is not possible, because the CAE readers behave exactly like HyperGraph's and in HyperGraph there is no such way to retrieve corner data. Regards, Roberta
  3. Hello, You may use a master-slave strategy between Compose and Activate, as described by our forum colleague Livio Mariano in this topic: Regards, Roberta
  4. If you are already in the directory where you should look for the H3D files, you may use the function dir followed by .h3d extension: myfiles = dir('*.h3d') It will return a list of .h3d files. length(myfiles) --> total number of .h3d files myfiles(i).name --> access to the .h3d file name according to the index i, which ranges from 1 to the number of files And other details about these files are also available, such as date of creation, size etc. Regards
  5. I've used pyaudio in the past to create .wav files, which is a package that is able to input/output audio. Steps to install the package: Open the command window (cmd) as Administrator Type cd C:\<Compose_installation_folder>\common\python\python3.5\win64 Type python.exe -m pip install pyaudio There are some examples at GitHub: https://gist.github.com/mabdrabo/8678538 https://gist.github.com/fopina/3cefaed1b2d2d79984ad7894aef39a68 And pyaudio documentation is at https://people.csail.mit.edu/hubert/pyaudio/docs/ - the class stream probably achieves what you are looking for. Regards, Roberta
  6. Have you tried to look at the tutorial models in Activate installation? Regards, Roberta
  7. Adriano, In the attached file, you can see an example of function: [setIDlist, elemIDlist, elemprop, propmat, matparam] = readset_prop_mat(modelfile,inputSet) Inputs: modelfile: .fem file name (string) inputSet: set ID (number) Outputs: setIDlist: list of set IDs (eg: 1, 2, 3, 4) elemIDlist: list of element IDs in a way that Compose/HyperGraph readers understand them (eg: E1, E2, E3, E4) elemprop: list of element IDs with respective properties (current version looks for CQUAD4 and CTRIA3 only) propmat: list of properties that have been queried based on the elements and respective materials matparam: list of materials that have been queried based on the properties and respective parameters (considering MAT8 with 5 parameters) The step by step is: A certain set is parsed based on the input ID The element list stored in that set is parsed Those elements are searched in order to determine their properties Those properties are searched in order to determine their materials Those materials are searched in order to determine their parameters Regards, Roberta readset_prop_mat.oml
  8. Unfortunately it is not possible, because these readers behave exactly like HyperGraph's. And in HyperGraph there is no such way to retrieve data in the material system. My suggestion is to create a simple parser to read coordinate systems from the .fem model and then transform these results in Compose. These parsers are fairly simple and I can share an example here in the forum depending on your need. Regards, Roberta
  9. Hello, Did you try to open the same file with HyperGraph? Because Compose borrows HyperGraph readers, which means that probably it won't open there either. Depending on how the file has been written by the solver, some results are not available in HyperGraph, which leads for them not to be available in Compose as well. Regards, Roberta
  10. What if you create an OML script to be the master and call the simulation in Activate as a slave? There are a couple strategies to do so in the topic Then you use in OML the command try catch to skip the error. Everytime the command executed in the try block fails, the catch block will become active and will be executed. Regards, Roberta
  11. OML (Open-Matrix Language) is one of Compose's languages, which is a derivation of HyperMath. HyperMath will be discontinued as of 2020 and therefore OML must be used instead. The latest versions of HyperWorks already support OML scripts in applications such as HyperMesh, HyperView and so on. Please refer to this topic for more information on this matter: The languages are very similar, again because OML was born from HyperMath. Therefore there is a utility called H2O, which is a tool used to convert scripts from Altair HyperMath HML language to Altair Compose OML language. H2O is an assistant to convert the scripts, because there are some minor differences in syntax and supported functions between HML and OML. Regards, Roberta
  12. Alex, hello! Please find attached an example with the script and a few files for you to try out. First of all, please keep in mind that the model information is not inside this new .h3d file, therefore you need to open a model file and the created results file in HyperView if you need to visualize it. There are 2 opening modes that might be used: new and append: - new clears the .h3d file for writing - append adds new information but it cannot modify existing information, which means means that it is not possible to add datatypes, layers or values to an existing subcase The hierarchy that must be followed is this one: - Layer definition (if needed) - Datatype definition (needs the layer in case there is one) - Subcase definition (needs the datatype) - Data per se (needs the subcase, datatype and layer in case there is one) Regards, Roberta simple_only_results.h3dsimple_model.h3dsimple_only_results.oml
  13. Nils, You are right, the Help is missing for this function and it will come in the next release (v2019.3). The syntax for it would be: data = [5 5;4 6;4 7;5 8;6 8;7 7; 7 6]'; figure(1); h = polyline(1, 'polydata', data); Where the first argument is figure handle and the third one is the data set. In your case, the figure will be very small using these inputs: But if you slightly change your data set to data = [5 5;104 106;104 7;5 8;106 8;7 7; 7 106]', for instance, we'd get: Regards, Roberta
  14. Nils, Another user in the forum (Livio) has a suggestion of using Compose as a master and Activate as a slave in order to run Activate in batch to perform parameter sweep. This post: May help you to achieve your goal! Regards, Roberta
  15. Manoj, Thanks for your suggestion! I was wondering if we had something that didn't need the user intervention, since every interaction with Compose would be done by the user by the custom GUI that has been created. Let's say that the script is for someone who is totally not familiar with Compose and all he is going to do is hit "Play" to use the GUI. Cheers, Roberta
