Connector automation for 3D holes in Flanges

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I have 2 flanges having co-linear holes...i want to create rbe2 in holes and connect these rbe2 for  co linear holes with beam...

by selecting the 2 0r more flanges..these connection should be created....

 

how can i do this?

Hi

First, find holes on flange, hm_holedetectioninit may help

Second, find mates of each hole

3, bind each hole by rbe2

4, bind 2 rbe2 by beam

hm_holedetectioninit
*createmark elems 1 all
hm_holedetectionsetentities elems 1
#holes
# hm_holedetectionsetholeparams hole_shape=31
#tubes
hm_holedetectionsettubeparams tube_shape=31 tube_type=0
hm_holedetectionfindholes 1
set n [hm_holedetectiongetnumberofholes]
hm_holedetectionend

 

using this script ...but not getting single hole...

i am looking for 3D holes...

 

am i using right script?

Hi @Pandurang

 

Try this if you already have solid elements created. I am not sure about the parameters though, you can change it 

as per your model.

 

*createmark elems 1 displayed
*findholesinit elems 1 3 30 0 0
*findholessolid 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0
*findholesend

@ tinh....I have made that script its working fine for flange meshing...but now i want to create rbe-beam-rbe connection between colinear holes..

 

@vipin i know this commands..this only finds out holes..

 

Thanks for your support guys...

You found holes , so you just bind nodes on the holes by rbe2, and then beam
