  1. Good Afternoon, I am trying to export mesh from Hyperworks 2019X CFD. However I have reason to believe that my install was corrupted. Attached are some pictures of my UI to show you what I have displayed. To start with, I am not able to view the components in CFD as I would in structural 2019X. I am not able to hide the components in order to view the mesh only. There are no options to export the mesh from the left side menu. There is no button based UI on the bottom of the screen as present in the optistruct version of the software. There is no ribbon at the top of the screen that allows for export. Please let me know if there is something with my install. If possible would anyone know how to re-complete the install/ fix the install?
  2. Good Afternoon, I am very new to hyperworks and have recently installed the newest Hyperworks 2019X. I have noticed that there is very little documentation for the new UI of Hyperworks. I understand that it is still in development, but this has been problematic for a number of reasons. I am trying to use the virtual wind tunnel for speeding up some basic fluid analysis tasks in my workflow. However I seem to be getting an error that says that I can not complete the analysis on a windows computer. The specific error that I get is, "Local runs are not available on this platform". When I look at the documentation provided with the software, I see that in the analysis step, "If you are running VWT on a Linux system with a supported GPU, no further configuration steps are necessary. If you are running VWT on a Windows system, you'll need to have a Linux installation of ultraFluidX available for running the solver. To run the solver from Windows: Click Export. Copy the .stl and .xml files that are created in the run directory over to Linux. Launch the solver by executing the ufxRun script, located in the installation directory at .altair/hwx/bin/linux64/ufx/scripts. Use the ufxRun -h option to view the help page." OK so I need a linux computer, which is very difficult to obtain for me. Also I read on some old forum posts that Ubuntu is not a supported linux version for Hyperworks. Also when I use the download tool on Altair connect there are no options for a linux install of Virtual Wind Tunnel. How am I supposed to use this tool if there is no documentation for how to even get it to run on a standard windows machine, or an install file for a linux machine?
