Easier loading of property script for custom weld types. For multi-core machines, the performance gains are considerable now that the penetration check utilizes all available CPUs. This functionality allows lines to be offset along their direction of curvature either continuously or variably. Options also exist to specify the start hypermeh of the line and the type of line to create when the direction of curvature changes within the line.
The primary purpose of this functionality is to allow you to visually verify that model data is correctly entered instead of having to review the text details of the element and property card images to do the same.
Different formula options can still be used to create node and element sets. Tetramesh Process Manager Template is a new process based tool to enable users to tetramesh models in a reduced timeframe.
Major benefits of the block format are:. A new 3D graphical representation has been introduced for all displayed 1D elements. The boundary layer thickness of the resulting mesh is closer to the user-defined target hypermesy in previous releases. You can use options such as color by properties.
Easy to use drag-and-drop functionality allows for very quick optimization problem setup by moving the optimization definitions from the optimization repository to the optimization problem definition. New API commands have been added to calculate the physical properties of solid geometry volume, center of hypwrmesh, moments of inertia, mass.
If you would like to revert to the old behavior just tying to the top and bottom rings you can edit the hm. Adhesive support to connector property scripts has been added for: Generic shape for model type constraints such as length, volume, angle, and radius can be automatically generated.
Updates to Fix 2nd Order MidNodes utility. This tool lists all types of contact definitions present in the model. Issues related to the Convert panel on the Tool noted have been fixed.
Available Product Updates
The old style visualization pop-up has been replaced with a new visualization GUI for controlling visualization options for connectors, constraints, loads, morphing, topology, systems, and vectors.
Bolt connectors can now realize to solid elements and will attach every node within the solid hole. Mapping and constraining domains, nodes, and morph volume edges to analytic surfaces described by algebraic equations can now be performed see map to geom and morph constraints panels. The introduction of the optimization model browser view allows you to setup multiple optimization problem definitions within a single HyperMesh session.
The tight algorithm has been improved to capture more features without the need to manually define features.
HyperWorks Product Updates
Naming control option when importing Catia files. New contact types such as point-to-edge and point-to-surface have been introduced. Automesh using free lines.
Post-processing of electromagnetic results in HyperView has been introduced. New panels and functionality.
OSSmooth hpyermesh been updated to support two-layer auto-bead generation. As a result, the robustness, performance, and quality of meshed output has significantly improved when comparing the same feature in previous releases of HyperMesh. The ability to htpermesh translate, position, and reflect shapes to selected nodes has been added. Morph volumes can be created by dragging along a line, vector, or about an axis. Multiple optimization setups can be saved to the. Blending through the mesh option has been added for section mapping, line difference, surface difference, and normal offset.
New mesh flow functionality has been introduced in the automesh panel. You can now convert shapes to enforced displacements and vice-versa. Issues related to mass calculations in summary templates for BEAMS and composites have been corrected.
Within the latest version there are also updates to the surface projection and tolerance algorithms.
Show and reverse normal is also possible at any time. Shrink wrap meshing now includes an option to enable solid mesh generation. A new capability for creating adhesive realization using seam connector building continuous hexa using lines hypetmesh input has been implemented.
A mid-side handle can be added to an edge by clicking on a particular position on the edge as well as deletion of mid-side handles. New element configurations have been added to the special second order element creation macro. Connectors can be morphed by type, for example, bolts and welds as clusters where as, seams as stretchable. After solid selection, the solid map panel takes you into the interactive mode where you can control the mesh density, element type, and mesh method before creating the solid mesh.
A search for the property script now occurs in the directory from which the feconfig. Only constant beam section and thickness elements are considered. This provides better control of midsurface extraction for these types of connections.

ANSYS solver does not support any formula for sets. Handles may be hgpermesh with respect to a node or with respect to the centroid of selected handles. You can swap contacts and targets, and add and delete elements in a contact pair.
