Missing graphics while exporting Inspire as mdl-file

Recommended Posts

I'm playing around with the new demo models for Inspire and MotionSolve (https://altairhyperworks.com/motionsolve-models/) and export the model "Landing Gear - 4 Wheels" to MotionSolve. When I open the model (.mdl) in MotionView, the connections between graphics and the components in x_t-file are broken (no box checked in the Components list). Also the names of the componets are not the same as in x_t-file, otherwise I could restore the connections by name.


How can I avoid this problem?


Thanks for help,

Landing_Gear_4 wheels.mdl

Inspecting the MDL file you provided there appears to be a mismatch between the part name and the internally represented name embedded in the CAD.  Think of it as being a 'mapping problem'.  This isn't your fault.  The attached 'LG_parts.txt' file shows what I believe the part mapping ought to be.


Try using the attached MDL and Parasolids file and see if that works out better for you.

Hi asajd,

Thanks for solving the mapping problem. With your files it now works fine. I just had to rename the file "Landing_Gear_4_wheels_x_t.8bbc17520c5a14e4688199a9da4b1a66" into Landing_Gear_4_wheels.x_t".
