  1. I am new in hype work customization. can you please let me know, how to select a node or is there any selection event for object selections. I want to create small application where, user can select a element node and once node is selected then corresponding data to that node will be displayed in GUI or in txt file programmatically. Data is saved local machine in .csv or .xlsx file forma. Thanks, Pushpendra
  2. Hey guys, I'm writing a script, where I can set a value (e.g. for the Young's Modulus) for a material property. My problem is that I would like to have a default value in the window, like 210000 MPa, which I can take and proceed or change it if it doesn't suit my material. Is it somehow possible to set such a default value? Kind regards and thanks in advance Simon Attached you can find the part of my script and a screenshot of the window I'm talking about: *startnotehistorystate {Modified E of material} set youngs_modulus [hm_getfloat "Youngs Modulus (Steel)=" "Enter Youngs Modulus:"] *setvalue mats id=1 STATUS=1 1= $youngs_modulus *endnotehistorystate {Modified E of material}
  3. Hey guys, as the title already says I'm looking for a macro which saves the nodes of a whole component into a nodelist automatically. In the end the command *plotnodelist is used and needs a nodelist to execute the program. Do you have any ideas how this could work? Kind regards and thanks in advance, Simon
  4. Hey guys, I want to create several materials, properties and components automatically. The desired IDs of all the materials, properties and components are saved in an external file and then written into a variable. Each of these values should create an own material, an own property and an own component. For creating the first material, everything works fine. But when the second material should be created, an error is occurring. Do you have an idea how this problem can be fixed? Kind regards Simon Attached, you can find the file with the IDs (these are the values in column 1 saved into the variable "field1") and the .tcl-script I'm talking about. SKO_3.tcl SKO.strs
  5. Hey guys, is there a way to create a label in the utility menu? I only find command to create buttons etc., but no command for labels. Can you help me out somehow? Kind regards Simon
  6. Hey guys, I'm trying to customize the output of a load step. Trying to run again the relevant parts of the command file, an error is occurring in this line. *startnotehistorystate {Updated string array} *setvalue loadsteps id=1 STATUS=2 4873={ } ROW=0 *endnotehistorystate {Updated string array} I'm pretty sure the empty brackets are the reason for the error, but I don't know how to get around them. Could you help me out with this problem? Kind regards Simon Attached you'll find my code. The relevant part starts after line 254. SKO_2.tcl
  7. Hey guys, after I have finished my work on a model, I start a new session in HyperMesh and want to delete the .fem-File from the previous model. This is not working, and a message appears saying that the .fem-file is still open in HyperMesh. If the command "file delete" is used, an error is occurring which says "permission denied". Do you know how I can solve this problem and delete the .fem-File without closing HyperMesh totally? Kind regards Simon
  8. Hey guys, I want to export the elementstresses calculated in HyperMesh using a .tcl-file. I found a way using a results curve but I can only manage to export nodal stresses. Do you know a way how to export also the element stresses? Kind regards Simon
  9. Hey guys, I'm trying to implement an algorithm for the Soft Kill Option in HyperMesh. An important step is to vary the Young's Modulus of each element depending on the element stress. As a consequence of the different stresses of every element, do I need to create a new material and a new property for every element? Or do you have another way to solve this problem? Kind regards and thanks in advance Simon
  10. Hey guys, I created a .tcl-script which opens a window where I can put in a reference temperature. After the value is entered, I would like the window to be closed automatically and hence to exit the program. I can't find any commands (like an exit-command) that work the way I want them to. Can you help me out on this topic? Kind regards, Simon Attached you can find the script: convert.tcl
  11. Hello all, I'm working on a script to duplicate elements from a reference component containing a solid to a new component with the same exact solid, but in another position and orientation. The translation part was easy as the hm_getcentroid function provides the solid centroid position, so I can use the command *translatemark to translate the desired mesh to the correct position. But to match the orientation, it has been a task more difficult that I was expecting. My approach has been to extract the moment of inertia of the reference solid and the target solid using hm_getmoiofsolid. Once I get these values, I compute the principal moment of inertia for each solid, so I have a comparable reference to use. Then I calculate the Euler parameters (or Quaternions) to obtain the rotation angles that I can use to rotate the elements from the reference solid to match the target solid orientation. The problem I'm facing is that it seems that the inertia calculation performed by hm_getmoiofsolid seems not to be consistent, in a sense that even extracting the principal moments of inertia from them, these principal directions do not coincide with the solid orientation. What could be done in this case? Thanks in advance, Jefferson Vieira
  12. Hey guys, I want to create a .tcl-script, that opens an input mask in HyperMesh where the user can select if he wants to mark elements or nodes (e.g. for force or pressure creation). So by clicking on Nodes he should be able to mark the relevant nodes, by clicking on Elements he should be able to mark the relevant elements. Could you help me out with that problem? Kind regards Simon
  13. Hey guys, I got a question concerning the following model. I want to move all the elements, which are surrounding the holes, into a component. Do you know a command how to mark them? Thanks in advance, Simon
  14. Hey guys, I'm looking for a .tcl-command to completely close a program. The program starts with a messagebox where you can choose yes or no. If you select yes, the program runs as it is planned. If you choose no, the whole program should stop. There for I used the exit 2 command. But instead of closing the whole program it only closes the message box and tries to run the code afterwards. Do you have an idea how to fix that problem? This is the relevant part of the code: set starting [tk_messageBox -message "Möchten Sie eine vorhandenes Modell verwenden?" -type yesno -icon question -title "Einladen des Modells"] switch -- $starting { yes { set basedir {C:/} set filetypes {{{Text} {*.fem}} {{Alle} {*}}} set par [tk_getOpenFile \ -initialdir [pwd]\ -title "Startdatei wählen..."\ -filetypes $filetypes ] *feinputwithdata2 "\#optistruct\\optistruct" "$par" 0 0 0 0 0 1 9 1 0 } no { exit 2 } } *createentity mats cardimage=MAT1 name=material1 ... Kind regards, Simon

  16. Hello everyone, i am new to Tcl programming and worked little bit with command.tcl file to create simple scripts. But now I would like to create a script with the help of if loop. I wanted the script automatically create the solids with bounding surfaces option and if the solids already exist in the model then to return. Can someone help me with this? I could only come out with this. *createmark surfaces 1 "displayed" *solids_create_from_surfaces 1 4 -1 2 Thank s and regards, Punith
  17. Hey guys, I created a .tcl-script, which I normally open with the active-tcl program. The script works as it is supposed to be and opens a GUI, where several buttons can used to do calculations etc.. In the next step, I created a button in HyperMesh and want my .tcl-script to be started by pressing this button. The problem is that the window I used to have when I've started the script by active-tcl doesn't appear when I use HyperMesh. Can you help me out with this problem? Thanks in advance, kind regards and greetings from Germany Simon You can find the script here:convert.tcl
  18. Hey guys, my .tcl-script creates different filetypes and saves all of them into the document folder. In order to not create a mess of files, I want them to be saved in a specific folder. I copied the path of my folder and read it by opening a script, which saves the path into a variable. At the moment, I'm using the following command to create a new file: set f [open path.txt w] How can I save the file into a specific path? Kind regards, Simon
  19. Hey guys, in order to set up a model, I want the user to choose in which degrees of freedom he wants to constrain his model. Is there a .tcl-command that opens a panel automatically where the user can enter specifications, especially the degrees of freedom, for the constraints? Kind regards, Simon
  20. Hey guys, I'm working at a customization problem. During a loop an automesh should be executed when the mesh criterium "aspect ratio" exceeds a specific value. Do you have an idea how I can get access to the aspect ratio values after each iteration? Kind regards Simon
  21. Hey guys, is there a .tcl-command which shows the maximal node stress of a structure after a simulation? Kind regards and thanks in advance Simon
  22. Hey guys, I want to calculate the mass of my model using a tcl-script. Is there a simple command to do this? (I haven't found one yet.) If this is not the case, do you know another way how to solve this problem? Kind regards Simon
  23. How to plot the data as shown in below figure using TCL script after .odb file is loaded in the Hypergraph2D? In Y-Type I would like to select RF2-Reaction force(Time History) , all the nodes in Y Request , Value in Y component and plot them.
  24. Hey guys, is it somehow possible to start and execute an OptiStruct Solver Run automatically by a .tcl command or script? The aim of this is to create the .h3d-File and .res-File automatically without pressing any buttons. I'm working with the 2017.2 student version of HyperWorks. Kind regards and thanks in advance, Simon
  25. Hey guys, I'm looking for a command to close or delete a variable totally. I got the problem that when I'm trying to run my script for the second time this error is occuring: This is the file in which the error is occuring: temp_in_fem.tcl Before starting this script the sample.scv file is created in this file: create_force_constraints.tcl I guess the variable is still saved somewhere in hypermesh and thus it can be deleted totally. I'm looking forward to your ideas. Kind regards Michael
