Hi, I want to get any coordinate (x,y,z) that lies on the surface. Only condition is that it should not be on the surface edges (Please refer the image attached). Is there any API available to achieve this? Thanks, Roshan
Greetings, I'm trying to read data from a node path that I've selected, using the way shown here http://www.altairhyperworks.com/pdfs/tips/1068.pdf I can see the "resolved in" option but I'm unable to change it to my cylindrical local coordinate system. Modeled in hypermesh and solved in abaqus, in Hypermesh I assigned my local csys to all nodes, still no luck. I'll be grateful if someone can help me with this. Thanks in advance.
There are 3 components, compA, compB and compC, in my model. My final goal is to find ten nodes that belongs to compA, which have the smallest distance from origin(0,0,0). Also, I want this procedure to be automatically done by tcl script. So, the steps I might take is like: 1. Get all node coordinate that belongs to compA. --> I don't know how to get those information. I have try some command like hm_entitylist, hm_getentityvalue, but in vain. Not sure which command can work. 2. Calculate the distances between every nodes and origin(0,0,0). 3. Sort the distances from small to large, and get the smallest 10 nodes' id. --> I can do these two steps in Matlab, but not sure it will work in Tcl script.
