  2. Hi, Since this morning I try to run optimization but I always get the same results: an optimization error (even for a simple model such as below where the load case seems correct to me ...). Do you know where this may come from ? (I have succeeded other optimizations the previous days using the same computer & software configuration, for information)
  3. I've set up an optimization study based on tutorial HS-4220 optimization of an impacted beam using my own model for the gauge optimization of crash structure for an ATV. During the both evaluation and optimization, HyperStudy fails to extract the results. Upon looking into the folders it appears that the jobs are not even run in the first place. In order to get the initial results from the setup evaluation, I manually launched the jobs using RADIOSS in the same working directory and they ran fine, generating the required output files. Could someone provide some idea as to why the jobs are not launching correctly through hyperstudy? I would like to run a fairly large optimization study, and manually launching the jobs will take too much time. I have attached the starter, engine, template and HS files. Thank you, Neil 20190723_eATV_HS_OPT.tpl 20190723_eATV_HS_OPT_0000.rad 20190723_eATV_HS_OPT_0001.rad eATV_Gauge_Opt.hstudy
  4. Hi all, I’m trying to achieve a specific shaped structure through optimization but I couldn’t reach this goal yet. I want to achieve a structure which (of course) fulfill all constraints, with minimize weight. So far so good but I want that during the optimization, no horizontal structures are created I tried it with draft in one direction, but the results were no satisfying. At least it would maybe help if it is possible to create two different draw directions (x- and y-direction). Is this possible? I also tried to manipulate the AM-Overhang-Constraints with 0° in horizontal and 60° vertical to get structures with at least 40° vertical, but through this it needs over 100h for 6 Iterations without creating an satisfying shape. Is there a workaround I haven’t considered yet? Thanks in advance!
  5.

Because in my model the contacts seem ok (those are default contacts obtained after using boolean substractions of non-design spaces on a design space volume to avoid intersecting parts) Thank you in advance,
  6. Hello and thank you for your help in advance. The problem is that I'm trying to do an optimization, it runs during a moment but fails and shows to me the next message. Thank you again.
  7. Is there any way to call a Hypermesh model from MATLAB? Is there any interface for them. I need to use my FEA model which is a Hypermesh model in an Optimization MATLAB code. How I can recall it in MATLAB? Thanks,
  8. Hey guys, I have a question on the theory of the SIMP Method used in OptiStruct to perform a Topology Optimization. I got that the stiffness matrix of a material is varied depending on its "density" and that using the penalization factor p, we are aiming for design with only 0 and 1 values in the end. For me it's still unclear, how OptiStruct is calculating these density values. How does the solver know where I have an element with density 0, 1 or something in between? Kind regards and thanks in advance Simon
  9. Hi there, I wanted to know if it's possible to define thickness steps when performing topology optimization using Optistruct. For example assume there is a body of PSHELL elements, Initial thickness is 10 and base thickness is 2.5 and between these two values only 6 is permissible. Or in another case only 8.5 and 2.5 are possible for final part. How can I go with this kind of problems? The real problem is to decrease some deflections of sheet metal parts by adding welded patches so thickness in different regions can not be any value. For example if initial thickness is 2.5 mm then I want to improve strength by only welding some 6 mm thickness patches to it so optimization output must be only 2.5 and 8.5 mm thickness. Please let me know if my question is not clear. Thanks in advance.
  10. Hello, After completing the optimization, there are 50 runs due to the algorithm and inside all of the runs there are s1.h3d files where I can see the results of each evaluation and I can add results manually in hyperview but for more evaluations it is quite a hard job to do. So I wanted to ask if there is an easier or automatized way to see all s1.h3d files of runs together in hyperview? thank you
  11. hello, i'm doing a size optimization in order to match the drequencies targets for the first 10 modes. so i defined my design variable wich is the PBUSH stifness k1..k6 and as and objective is the MIn using DSYSID (iwth all the 10 first frequancies and the targets) but some how i don't have the right results thats i want i have in my model DESVAR refered to stifness of PBUSH DVPREL1 DRESP1 MIN WITH a DSYSID everythings is well defined i don"t if there something else to add to my optimization to work
  12. I need to define a response to sum up the stress values of all the elements in a component. What is the best way to do it? How the design equation should be defined? Thanks, Soraya
  13. Hi All, I’m working on the structural design of an orthogrid cylinder. I’d like to perform a DOE, in order to assess the optimum number of ring stiffeners. Is there a way to do that with HyperStudy or HyperMorph? Is it possible to automate the process, linking a parametric CAD model in Solidworks to Optistruct? Thank you for your time Enrico
  14. Hi, I need to convert my optimization result to a 3D CAD model for 3D printing. The model is divided into design and non design spaces. When I export the model, only design space is converted. How I can convert the whole model into CAD model. When I try to export the solver deck as .stl file, there is not .stl file option available. I appreciate if someone can help. Thanks, Soraya
  15. flaecheopti_multiobjective.femHello, i was trying to make a multi-objective optimization by combining a "massfrac" and a "compliance" response in the dresp2 "function" card. Unfortunately I always get the following error message: A fatal error has been detected during input processing: *** ERROR # 557 *** DRESP2 3 is not referenced above the first SUBCASE. This type of response must be specified above the first SUBCASE. This error occurs in DESOBJ 3. I don't understand how I'm supposed to reference the dresp2 above the first subcase. The Hyperworks Help does not specify how to reference it above the subcase only that in some cases it is necessary. I tried to create the responses before creating the loadstep but that didn't solve it. I also tried to just cut+paste the objective section from the subcase information in the .fem-file infront of the loadstep section. But running the edited .fem-file from the command prompt didn't work either. Am I missing something here? The .fem-file is (hopefully) attached. Thanks for any helpful tip!
  16. Hello Everyone, I urgently need your help. I have to do an optimisation of a B-Pillar which i have already simulated in Radioss according to 3 point Bending. This was my first time with hyperstudy so i guess i did many thing wrong by defining output responces and contraints i guess. The aim is to hold the intrusion level same and minimize the mass of the structure. I would be really appriciated if someone could help me. i ll post some screenshots here because somehow i cant save the hyperstudy file. Actually i can save but cant open again. It gives error. I just added the size parameters. Shape parameters i will add them later when i understand how hyperstudy works exactly After nominal run i tried to evalute the study But i get this error : Full folder is in the attachments. I need urgent help to finish master thesis. Thanks in advance
  17. Hi everyone, I'm trying to set up a model for an optimization problem and in the model I have CHBDYE surface elements for the heat convection. When I try to run the optimization, I get the error message 'CHBDYE surface element can't exist in topology or free-size design domain.' Does it mean that I can't have those elements on my design space or should I define them in another way? Best Regards Mert
  18. Hello, My question is about the time of calculus on Inspire. I've started an optimization calculus yesterday on my project and it was finished in about 2 hours. After that, I wanted to check the difference in the optimization after activating "optimization" in the property windows of the 8 nuts in my model and the optimization is now running for 16 hours. Is this normal ? Thanks in advance
  19. Hello SolidThinking community, Could someone please point out what I'm doing wrong, or advise a better way of setting my part up for optimization? My part pivots around a shaft near the top such that, it can swing down to contact a vertical wall. I am unsure how to "fix" the wall in all directions. Currently I am using small displacement constraints set to 10e-6. I have set the contact between the wall and part as "contact", and the contact between the shaft and part as "bonded". The contact along the top surface, where the pressure is applied, is "bonded" with the part. The optimization fails every time.. Any help would be great appreciated. Cheers!
  20. Hi , I would lik to know if someone knows le the link between the analysis and the optimisation work. I mean , i can chose the size of the elements during the analysis ans choose the option coarse or accurate . What is the impact on the optimisation process ? thanks you Best regards Virgile
  21. Hello! I have a rocker which should be optimized. I added force and joints, but no matter I try maximize stiffness or minimum mass (there is always "design violations" with the safety factor) the results are not so good. The picture shows how the rocker works. The .stmod file is also attached. Thank you very much! Best Regards 01_Rocker_FEM.stmod
  22. Hi, I'm a final year student currently undergoing a final year project about lower arm suspension. I'm still new to this software and I'm hoping that you guys can help. After I've optimized my lower arm suspension by minimization of its mass, it says design violation and it had shown me my original factor Of Safety 2.1. Does it mean it needs to be higher or lower? Or did I do something wrong in applying the force? grtab.stmod
  23. Hello, I run the optimization without errors. However when I check the results in the iso mode, the final step shows an model without elements already at an iso-value of 0.02 (only the non-design elements left). What am I doing wrong? The hist.mvw and the .out files attached belong to the mvw and hm files (when saving I only changed the version from 2 to 3). Could anybody please help me? Cheers Daniel Gepaecktraeger_2_optimization.out Gepaecktraeger_2_optimization_hist.mvw Gepaecktraeger_3.mvw Gepaecktraeger_3.hm Gepaecktraeger_2_optimization.mvw
  24. Hello,Forums I am doing analysis of a unique CFRP pipe by Optistruct. I am receiving this following error message: *** ERROR # 605 *** Element 1 is referenced by STACK 1 (on PLY 1) and by STACK 2 (on PLY 5) simultaneously. Different stacks are created by dividing the upper and lower areas of the pipe into sets. There seems to be an error because it refers to the same element Is there any good way to do it? (Modeling is possible but analysis is error) CFRP-PIPE-Asymmetric laminated.hm
  25. Hi Guys, I'd like to share "Tips and Tricks" regarding Lattice Design and the NonDesign Space. First to mention: Please keep Inspire updated - we introduced Lattice in 2017.3 but the last few months, we put a lot of effort to increase performance and stability! ATM (April 2018), 2018.1 is best to work with! If you are unhappy with the "resolution" of your nonDesign spaces after a lattice optimization - you can manually force the nondesignspace (per part) to use smaller elementsize inside the model configuration: Comparison: Before: After: Furthermore, you can create a smoothed lattice before you export it as an STL: Regards, Felix
