Hypermesh to Abaqus

Recommended Posts

Dear experts,

 

I am facing a problem when exporting an input file to ABAQUS. It stated "---- elements have missing properties definition". I will explain the steps I took for this analysis.

 

1) Imported STL file in hypermesh

2) Tetrameshed STL model

3) Created material properties

4) Created property (solid_section)

5) Assigned to the tetrameshed model

6) Export to ABAQUS as input file

 

Did I do anything wrong from the steps I mentioned above? Please correct and advise me some suggestions to solve this problem. Thanks a lot in advance.

 

Best,
Mushi

Hi mushi,


 


As of my knowledge you have missed one step after assigning the property.


Just try this step


 


>


 


GOTO menu bar > mesh > Assign > Element Type > check 2D&3D >select Tria4 = C3D4


 


Select all Tetra4 elements


 


Update


 


>


 


Export and check it

Hi Raviteja,


 


Thanks a lot for your suggestion. I just did that step but the same problem occurred. I have a look in the input file and noticed that I have two element types: one is S3 and another is C3D4. Do I also have to assign material properties for S3? Or can I delete the S3 elements?


 


Best,


Mushi

In HM,


 


Goto > Tools > delete > Elements > by Config (Configuration) > Click on "Config" (will show you all the element configurations) > select Tria3


the type will be selected automatically as S3 


> select entity (will select all the existing tria3 elements)


> Delete entity
