Degrees of freedom for independent RBE3 nodes

Recommended Posts

Hi community,


is there a way within HyperMesh to define the degrees of freedom for the independent nodes of an RBE3 element? They're automatically set to DOF123.


I work with Nastran and can manually edit the bdf file after export but this is most often very impracticable.

Hello FBa,


You can edit the element RBE3->Update->dofs and switch "select to type" into "set individual".

Now you can set the dofs and update the independent node. See picture.


Best Regards,
