mansin posted a topic in HyperWorks Scripts & CustomizationHi, everyone. I encountered a problem when I reflected a model with area connectors. The model is symmetric, but the whole model must be analyzed in some cases. I reflected the original half model (half model.hm) about xz plane of AxisSystem1 (ID=1) by using *duplicateentities and *reflectmarkwithoption and *equivalence commands, then merged the same components and load collectors. However, the analysis of the symmetry model (symmetry.hm ) cannot be executed properly and gives too much errors such as, *** See next message about line 47237 from file: E:/HyperWorks_Work/Symmetry/Symmetry.fem "RBE3 26648 23617 0 22003 23619 23620 23621" This line was interpreted as: 47237:RBE3, 26648, , 23617, 0, 22003, 23619, 23620, 23621 *** ERROR # 1000 *** in the input data: Incorrect data in field # 5.

Expected COMPONENT numbers, found INTEGER (0). . . . The errors in .out file reflect that the RBE3 elements in the reflected Glue component have wrong information. The RBE3 elements seem not to be reflected properly. BTW, the half model can be analyzed normally. I don't know where the problem is. Can anybody gives me some advices? Thanks. half model.hm Symmetry.hm Symmetry.out
Hi there! Would someone please explain me one thing? I have a complex solid model. I split it on parts. Each of parts have own plane of symmetry. So I split each one to mesh just half (quarter). Then after surface mesh of half (quarter) I reflect 2d mesh to opposite part and associate nodes to it. After I try to mesh faces of the connected parts. But time to time mesher not "feels" associated nodes. Often it not "feels" associated nodes for edges with T-connections (works for only 2 surfaces of 3). It makes me crazy... Thnx in advance for answer.
