Dear all, I am trying to define a multi-body deformable surface contact for Optistruct using MBDCNTDS type of interface. Below image shows the doc page for this type of interface. As the docs say, I have made an MBDSRF type node set to use as the deformable surface. I am able to pass this MBDSRF type of set into the SRFID entry of the MBDCNTDS . So no issues with the deformable surface part. However, when I try to make a node set for the SID1 entry in MBDCNTDS, it will not accept any of my node sets which are saved as entity sets. I have tried using many different card images (SET_GRID and many other), still, the SID1 entry of the MBDCNTDS I'm setting up will not see my node set. I would be grateful if you could share any information with me regarding the type of node set I should use which can be passed into the SID1 entry of MBDCNTDS. Relevant info: I'm using Hyperworks 2017 Best regards, Deniz Bilgili
Did you know that there are dozens of interesting examples accessible online for multi-body / motion simulation using Altair software?! See https://altairhyperworks.com/motionsolve-models/ These examples have been designed to help raise your awareness for the kinds of simulations that are possible with Altair's multi-body motion simulation tools. There are currently 17 examples for MotionView+MotionSolve and 29 examples for Inspire Motion -- with dozens more examples scheduled to be added quite soon. The goal is to continually add more and more over time. So consider bookmarking that page and check back often! Each example comprises two pieces: (1) a movie clip that plays automatically in your browser + (2) a downloadable zip file which typically contains: One or more movie (.mp4) files. Pre-built model files for the complete, mechanized multi-body system. Results files. A presentation (.pptx) file describing the model and how to use it. Enjoy!
