  1. Hello , I want to change 2. Order Elemets to 1.Order Elements in Hyper Mesh, I did it and export this new Model. when I open this model(1. Order Elements) in Hypermesh, the Elements are not shown. I tried to change the Element Type from SOLID187 to SOLID72 but, even at this time the Elements are not displayed.and the Elemet Types are still SOLID187. my perpose is that I have to Run the new model(with 1.Order Elements) in Ansys, but with this Problem, ansys don't Run. could you please tell me how can I solve this Problem?
  2. What are different element types and which is used for axisymmetric elements for both quad and tria elements? I am using Hyperworks 17 Student version. I want SFMGAX1 element type and Cgax4 and cgax3 elements. But it is not given.

    8-node continuum shell elements with five integration points through thickness? how to select it?
  4. Hello Support team, I am using HyperMesh 14.0 and ANSYS workbench 17.0 (ANSYS Mechanical). I am performing a Explicit dynamic analysis on 2 bodies which are non-linear. I am using HyperMesh for meshing only and all other things (Material selection, Boundary conditions, Analysis set-up) are performed in ANSYS explicit dynamics model. However, my question is about element type selection. Could you please tell me which element type should select in this scenario? I used Solid185, but I didn't get any results with this. Would you suggest me any other ET Type? Also, if you have any document which would guide me through this process (Meshing > Set element type > Export to ANSYS), it would be great. Waiting for your kind response. Thanks & Regards, Vishal
  5. I am using Abaqus 2017 version to post-process my results where I would prefer to use C3D8S as hexahedral element type and this element is not available in Hypermesh14.0. So whenever I need to debug my input file created in HM, it is required to change the element type to C3D8/C3D8I before importing. So is there any way by which C3D8S/C3D8Hs elements can be added in Hypermesh 14 element library? Is there any script needed to add this element type in the library?
