Hello Everyone, I would be really appriciated if someone can answer my question. I dont know if it is possible in Hyperworks to do implicit parametrisation. I am currently working on a cross section shape optimization of a b Pillar. This b pillar consists of 3 metal sheet. Outer inner and the reinforcement. Reinforcement should go up and down in the y direction Outer and inner pillar should be parametrised in x direction. I have already made required morphing and saved them as shape. This is called as an explicit shape parametrisation while the geometrical conflict and overlapping can only be prevented by having a smaller margin of movement. In order words when i move the reinforcement more than 12mm outside pillar and reinforcement will cause an overlapping. Is there any way to control this? When the outer pillars are wider there is whole bunch of space that reinforcement in y direction to move. But if move it than there will be overlapping when it is narrower. Such as in the picture belows. Hope i could explain my problem.
