SHOW FEATURES OPTION IN SIMLAB 14.0

Recommended Posts

Hi 

 

I have just installed the new version of SIMLAB 14.0. I am having a problem finding the show feature toolbar  which is available in the old version. I tried to go through the help file to find that toolbar but I couldn't find it.    

 

Regards,

Rishabh

Hi,

Please see the command mapping in help.Now you can select body and with right click you can see option of show features.

See attached screenshot.I hope you would be excited to see the changes in Simalb 14.0

Thanks a ton :):) 

 

Yes I am really looking forward to explore the new features of simlab 14.0.

 

I am currently working on a geometry which is meshed using R-trias completely. I am trying to do the same using simlab and I am able to generate R-trias on curved geometries effectively through options such as fillet control,isoline and cylinders.Is there a possibility to generate R-trias on planar surfaces in simlab ?

  • In planar area having four side faces it is possible to get Rtrias with isomesh pattern. But if the area is not having four side faces and if it is having uneven geometrical lines then it is not possible to get isomesh pattern in simlab.With Body mesh control advanced mesh control setting option (Four sided face with Isomesh)you can get Rtrias pattern.See attached screenshot for body mesh control advanced option.(Surface mesh & Remesh does same with advanced setting)

Hi

I am looking for a way to mesh r-trias, too. Really supprised that it does not have this mesh type as in hm

Can we mesh 2d with mesh type "mixed"? then generate 3d from it?

Under Surface mesh both option are available. Rtrias is named as Isomesh in Simlab. PFA screenshot for same.

Just check below Simlab video available on youtube.

Hi Rahul,

I tried with tria3-"iso mesh" pattern. but it is not same as r-trias

and quad-"mixed" pattern is not as good as HM.

Modification tools are excellent. But I am expecting SL generate R-trias as default pattern

Simlab mainly works based on defined local mesh controls. I feel this is robust for tetrahedral & tria meshing.

 

Also approach for meshing is little different compared to Hypermesh. In HM for complex part we prefer to mesh complex region first, then we mesh other region. But in Simlab we define local mesh controls & mesh part in one go. For any 3D complex part consist of holes, fillets, cylinder which is covered by the local mesh control in Simlab.

 

It is not ideal to compare 2d quad mesh with Hypermesh because both tools use a different mesh algorithm. So I would recommend you to explore Simlab for 3d tetra & tria meshing.
