  2. CADFeko - script

    Hi, I am trying to make a simple geometry with the script editor. I'm having trouble to set a metallic medium to a certain face. here is my attempt: metallic = project.Media:AddMetal() newSettings = {} newSettings["Medium"] = project.Media:Item("Metallic1") newSettings["Thickness"] = 0.002 substrate.Faces["Face1"]:SetProperties(newSettings) I get an error: Error 17901: Medium has an invalid value. When I try to set directly the medium with this code: substrate.Faces["Face1"].Medium= project.Media:Item("Metallic1") substrate.Faces["Face1"].Thickness=0.01 I get an error about being unable to set Thickness to 0. I think it cannot work because I need to make the media and thickness in 1 operation. I tryed using the SerProperties with the GetDefaultMedia() and it works fine. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you

  5. Hi Tinh, want to connect tetra meshed and shell meshed(could be tri or quad) comps with quad mesh. if tri on shell meshed comps ..i have to delete them at vicinity of weld...create quad at deleted portion....then have to renumber these one near by layer of quad at weld in series...and also nodes on weld.... things i automated till now as per my logic: 1. projected duplicate nodes from tetra meshed comp on shell meshed...perpendecular 2. then by drag->nodes planer to shell meshed comps... consider i created yellow meshed(ref attachment) now i want to delete some portion of shell meshed comps( green in attachment) then connect yellow with green...... manually this takes much time to work out... so want to automate this... Regards, PD
  6. Assign "*appendmark elems 1 {by adjacent}" to a shortcut key you want But it will work on 1st panel only. There is no way to select for upper panel marks
  7. Oh, just first generate 5+1.5D washer then generate 1.5D one
  8. Many types of weld can be done by hm connector. Don't you use it instead of writing it your self?
  9. Burst pressure simulation of Rubber Hose

    Sorry Paritosh, Did not continue with the project as I changed the job. Regards, Bharat
  10. washer split

    Hello, DO WE HAVE SCRIPT FOR DOUBLE LAYER WASHER ONE SHOULD BE OF 1.5*D AND THE OTHER LAYER MUST BE 5MM+FIRST LAYER,? Please help me
  11. Hello, I saw a previous thread in this forum asking for help about an off-center 20-layer spring deformation problem. The location of that thread is here: I wanted to continue that question, but with a spring meshed with solid elements (Not shell elements). ---1st Q---: How to define self contact of a spring meshed with solid elements (because every two adjacent layers will be in contact during spring compression)? ---2nd Q---: Can OptiStruct NLSTAT with LGDISP=1 work out such highly geometric non-linear solid-meshed spring deformation problem? For example, the analysis in that previous thread was trying to solve an 120-degree rotational displacement loadcase, but was ended with weird final deformation. Thank you.

  13. Problem with 4 poster, ride simulation

    Sorry Prakash, how can i fixed my problem with that graph?
  14. results probe

    Query resolved in below post.
  15. ELEMENTS BY ADJACENT

    Both are Opensource Programming language so there's a lot of learing resource on Internet.

    Sorry for the late reply.I guess below post should help you for your query,
  17. fittedspline In Editfeko

    Thanks for your reply. I am trying to automate feko with Matlab. I can upload my points to Editfeko every time I run it but I don't know if there any way to import and mesh these points in Cadfeko using Matlab.
  18. Hypergraph

    Stress output is available for elements.In Y request you would find E95859 is element id.
  19. ELEMENTS BY ADJACENT

    thank you, its working, but where can i learn tcl scripting and python scripting.
  20. fittedspline In Editfeko

    Hello MOHAMED HAMDALLA, As you have noted, EDITFEKO does not have a fitted spline and we don't intend to extend EDITFEKO (or rather the RPEFEKO language) to have it in the future. Your options are: Use CADFEKO (not sure why you need to use EDITFEKO, since CADFEKO also support scripting) Use CADFEKO to fit and mesh the line and import the meshed line in EDITFEKO (IN card that imports the segments from a *.cfm file) Fit the points yourself and import the fitted points into EDITFEKO
  21. fittedspline In Editfeko

    Hi all, I am trying to create an arbitrary wire using Editfeko. the problem is there is no option to generate fitted spline in Editfeko as Cadfeko. I have points that need to be fitted in a curve line like the attached line in my Cadfeko file. My Editfeko is also attached. If anyone run both files he will see a shift in the results because of the descountouniouies in my Editfeko structure. Thanks good.cfx wire geomtry.txt DONE.pre
  22. Hypergraph

    Hello, I am doing FRF. I want to plot Stress vs frequency plot in hypergraph. But result for nodes above 10000 is not showing. Please help me. Regards Rajendra
  23. Modify X axis with Node ID

    Hi, I'm attaching a document which shows creating a cross plot values along a specified node path. I think this may help you, please go through the same. Cross plot values along a specified node path.pdf
  24. NODE ID

    Hi Zhaoying, You can review the node group in HyperCrash but I don't think it's possible to see the node ids of the node group in HyperCrash. I suggest you to export the model from HyperCrash, manually open the model file (_0000.rad) in Textpad and review the node group where you can see all the node ids.

    Hello, how can i check the node IDs in a node group in hypercrash? Thanks for your help Zhaoying
