Problem while Exporting to LS-Dyna

Recommended Posts



I have created a mesh file in HM and assigned material and properties to the elements.


But when I export the same file, I am not able to see the properties or materials in LS dyna.


May I know where am I going wrong? (I have used LS- dyna as profile)

Could you please let us know the version & patch you are using at your end? I assume you would have checked appropriate comments option while exporting LS dyna file.

Q.Nguyen-Dai - Sorry,can't share the model.


Udhay - yes, I have done that.


Rahul- Hyperworks 14 and LS dyna 7.0.


Apart from the problem above, we are facing another issue. I have created all hex elements and assigned section property as thick shell in ls dyna profile. Whenever I import the file into LS dyna , the element normal for the same are not  uniform. In HM, I have extracted faces for the same and found the normal to be uniform. What might be the problem in LS dyna?


Thanks and regards,
