  1. Scaling factor and units

    Hi, You don't have unit selection in HyperMesh. It works with Consistency of unit systems. If you want to change the unit systems ( of the geometry ) , then you can use File > Import > geometry ( refer Import Option ) The Scaling Factor represents, the unit conversion for geometry by scaling it ( either multiplying or dividing ) & rest of the parameters are specified in Material, properties & Boundary Conditions to define the Unit System. Check the value "Scaling Factor", if it is 1 , then it represents "no scaling is done & geometry will have the same unit system as CAD" . Other value will represent respective scaling. In your case, you want N, mm, Sec, Tonns, MPa etc system, you can scale the geometry to get converted to mm, create isotropic material ( with E in Mpa , rho in tonns/mm3 & U ) & BC's ( Load in N, Pressure in MPa ). your answer will be in respective units ( Stress-Mpa, Disp-mm, pressure-Mpa, energy-mJ ) If you still have face any problem, then can share your geometry through my drop-box & contact me on +91 9762962194 for the same.
  2. The license application, approval, download & installation process for Altair HyperWorks and soildThinking Inspire student editions are the same. Students can apply for either of the tools & can get both the tools with a single license file. The same will work for both the executable ( HyperWorks / Inspire ). No need to apply separately for these tools.
  3. Hello All, I have applied for Altair Hyper Works & waiting for its approval.Kindly guide over the approval process.
  4. licensing errors

    Dear Team, seems to be like your license got expired. You can check the end date for license by opening the same in word/text pad. If the license is expired then, contact "edu-support@india.altair.com" for future action.
  5. The new updated license application process for Altair HyperWorks Student Edition has changed. You can refer below provided link for the same -
  6. Dear Team, The license application process for Hyper Works Student Edition have changed. Kindly share the updated process for our reference.
  7. Prakash, You are facing "Vector Orientation Error" in your case. Refer : 1D > Bar > update > Select the Elements ( Which left even after Mesh ) & change the orientation Vector to perpendicular axis > update the all the parameters. It will update the elements. Ex - In your case, elements along Z-axis are facing Vector Orientation Error. You can refer above panel. Select remaining elements. Orientation Vector to "X-axis / Y-axis" & update all parameters. It will visualize all the elements. You can try all above mentioned steps & if the same problem persist, then kindly share your model file through secure Drop-box
  8. Hyperworks Organizer error

    Sourabh, Kindly share Operating System & graphics card details.
  9. Hello Dani, can you share your model file with me through provided drop-box link - Click here
  10. Skin/surface

    Rossay, Seems to be like you are looking for Topology Optimization of Sheet Metal parts/ Surfaces. In that case, you can refer below provided video link for the same - You can download the respective model files from - here
  11. Harsh, can you precisely tell, what are you planning.?
  12. Harsh, you can apply the pressure on - 1. Faces - In this option, it will select all the elements on the face 2. Elements - In this case, you can select the elements " by manual selection or by creating sets " Pressure is always applied at the center of elements, which will have same magnitude on each element ( same as entered value ) In order to distribute them, 1. For UDL - you can divide the magnitude by no of elements & by applying same magnitude on of them 2. For UVL - you can refer Interpolation option under "Magnitude" for more information about uniformly varying load, refer below provided link -
  13. Rollacage geometry is 1D ( line data ) or 2D ( Surface data ) ?
  14. The process for solidThinking Installation & activation is given below -
  15. You can find all the information ( Platform, required Configuration, limitations ) on provided link - http://www.altairuniversity.com/hyperworks-2017-student-edition-limitations/
  16. Hello Nikhil, The process for license application for HW SE & solidThinking Inspire is the same. We already have solved this query for Hyper Works Student Edition. Kindly refer the below provided link -
  17. For motion solver

    In case you don't have HyperWorks Student Edition Package Installed on your system, you can follow below provided link to apply for the same -
  18. Dear Team, there is error coming when i am using hyper works image is attached below. please help me to solve this.
  19. The regular process to get Altair Hyper Works Student Edition is to apply through "Altair Store" which involves below provided steps - 1. Get register over Altair Store > Apply for the license - 2. Post approval, Download the license & executable - 3. Installation & Activation of the license -
  20. PLOAD1

    Hello, we are using "Linear Interpolation Option" in which you are specifying the loads of with two different magnitude & expecting the linear interpolation between those two magnitudes. PATH - Analysis > Force > Magnitude > Linear Interpolation ( In which we have to select the nodes in between two loads & select those two loads , it will automatically interpolate the same. Kindly refer attached sample deck for the same - 123.fem Meanwhile if you want to input Equation, kindly let me know. I can share the deck & methodology for the same.
  21. In order to make the geometry Mappable , you can refer below provided tutorial. For Making Mappable Geometry - HM-2060 Creating and Editing Solid Geometry.zip For Creating Hex Mesh with Mappble Geometry - HM-3220 Creating a Hexahedral Mesh using the Solid Map Function.zip
  22. There are two ways to reduce the length of 3D Elements 1. For mapped geometry, you can simply enter the small size as compare to older size. 2. In Conventional Method, Mesh the geometry with 2D elements & with smaller element size by improving Quality Criteria , you can convert them in to 3D Elements. In both the above cases, you should delete the old HEX Elements first.
  23. Harsh, 1. In FEM, you need to apply the loads & BCs on Elements. You can simply apply the loads on Direct top & bottom Face Elements. Select any one element from top & bottom area and select them by "Face Option" ( no need to pick it manually ). 2. The application of load depends upon your case & requirement. a. If you are planning to apply load "Normal to Elements", then Pressure will suit your purpose & it will distribute same value of magnitude on each element. b. If you are planning to apply the load on nodes then, Force will suit the purpose. In case of Pressure, application you need to take care of Elements on edges to maintain the direction & magnitude with proper load application method 3. In order to delete 2D elements, you can use Delete > Elements > by configuration > ( Select "Quad / Tria" seperately ). In case, you want to apply the loads on faces, then use those elements instead of Surfaces. If you can share the model through my drop-box , i will go through the same & suggest you the changes as per your requirements.
