Hypermesh - Node equivalencing between different components

Recommended Posts

I have a mesh in component1 and another mesh in component2.

 

Is there a way to do a node equivalencing operation from comp1 to comp2?

 

What I mean is, while I do this operation, I don't want the nodes on comp1 to equivalence to nodes on comp1 (no node equivalencing on the same component)

 

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply, but it would be too difficult to split up comp1 into multiple components.

 

I guess I'm just looking for a HM way to do coinc node check between comp1 and comp2, but without nodes in comp1 being considered in the calculation.

 

Thanks

I have a tip in this case (I already got this problem in a real project, and find out this way ;))

 

1. Preview equivalence nodes in comp1 only, you find some nodes

2. Bind above nodes by a rigid (to prevent them from next equivalence)

3. Do steps 1 and 2 with comp2 only

4. Now you can equivalence both comps, because each comp cannot equivalence it self (rigid elems prevent this)

5. Delete 2 rigids
