  1. I am a beginner for hypermesh customization. Want to know what are the prerequisites before i enter customization. And how do i set up the environment for customizing Hypermesh.
  2. I am trying to debug TCL code through hypermath tool in Hypermesh. But, i don't know why it doesn't work properly like other IDEs. I don't know how to debug it step by step, so that i can come to know the workflow. It doesn't even shows the values at breakpoints. Any idea?
  3. hi, In a macro I written I have 3 for loop nested. the 1st one iterates for up to 3000 times .so my execution time is long. Is there any way to reduce time. Thanks and regards, Mahes
  4. Is there a command / option that we can use to enable word wrap in TableView cells. Right now, when a cell has data that is longer than its width, it just shows "..." at the end instead of the actual data when I publish the TableView window to an html file. It shows up correctly when I publish a .ppt but not in an html. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
  5. hi, when I am running my macro if the number of nodes is higher am getting the above error. Any idea about this. I used lists and 2 inner for loop for iterating through nodes.
  6. sir, where can i find full vehicle file of taurus for crash in radioss forum?

  7. hi, hm_appendmark nodes 1 "by adjacent" Since nodes cant be marked by adjacent. But I need to get adjacent nodes . Is there anyway that I can use
  8. Can anyone tell ,whats the command save the elements that are found by findmark command
  9. Sets

    Is there any way to get the node between two nodes of a element by tcl command
  10. Similar to the ExportHTMLReport command for a session variable in HyperView, is there a corresponding ExportPPTReport tcl command for a HyperView session variable as well ?
  11. I need to open a saved template say a.tpl as soon as i run a tcl file say x.tcl basically i need to call tpl file in tcl file. How cn that be done?
  12. Hi , how to open a already existing powerpoint file using exec command. i tired exec "C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Office/Office14/POWERPNT.EXE" "C:\VSURES33\ppt_documents\CAE.pptx. its working. but i need i will use the command in any system i should not bother about office14 or office10 etc. beacuse each user will different office system so it should support for that. thanks in advance suresh vijayan
  13. How could we insert an image into TextView using the <img> tag ? I tried adding it to the HTML in the TextView editor, however the image does not show up on Evaluating the text, nor does it throw any error ? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
  14. How to convert .tcl to .tbc? Thanks, SriGanesh.
  15. Is there a list of tcl commands that exists for use with TableView ? I was able to find some for the TextView and other HyperWorks modules but could not find any commands for TableView in the HyperWorks Reference Guide on the Knowledge Base ? Thanks.
  16. My question is how to use TCL scripts to swap master-slave surface. Like the figure attached, I want to swap master-slave surface of those highlighted contact pairs. I want to use Young's modulus to decide which surface should be master, and the other to be slave. Master surface should have higher Young's modulus. So, how can I write this if statement and swap the master-slave surface? My model is also uploaded, and I have created the contact pairs. But the contact pairs have'nt been swapped. raw.hm
  17. How to plot the data as shown in below figure using TCL script after .odb file is loaded in the Hypergraph2D? In Y-Type I would like to select RF2-Reaction force(Time History) , all the nodes in Y Request , Value in Y component and plot them.
  18. How could we apply a contour plot to a model using tcl commands ? Such that after doing so when an animation is started, the contour plot appears with it ? I've found commands to SetDataType and SetDataComponent for the contour Handle, however I could not find an apply command for the same. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
  19. How can I set element density for two shortest lines of a rectangular surface and leave the other two lines with the default element density based on predefined element size? I have the line IDs. #Selected Surface set surfIDs [ hm_getmark surfs 1] *createmark lines 1 "by surface" {*}$surfIDs #Line list set lineList [hm_getmark lines 1] #Line IDs set lineId1 [lindex $lineList 0] set lineId2 [lindex $lineList 1] set lineId3 [lindex $lineList 2] set lineId4 [lindex $lineList 3]
  20. Hi all, I am searching for an easy way to merge multiple component into a single component. I have already done some preliminary search but found nothing about merging components. For example: I have a .hm file with 3 components, each containing different type of entities (e.g. nodes, elements, solids, surfaces, points etc.), all I want is to have a tcl command that moves all entities in these existing components into a new component, and delete all previous components. I went through the documentation of scripts (Tcl modify commands) and found nothing directly helpful for this purpose. Experienced/knowledgeable users of HyperMesh, please help. Best regards, Mubeen.
  21. Hi all, I have imported geometry from a CATPart into HyperMesh and now I am trying to get the names of the surfaces in the model. I am using following commands and till now have no success. (I can get the IDs of surfaces e.g. 1,2,3,4 ..) *createmark surfs 1 all set surfsList [hm_getmark surfs 1] hm_getentityvalue surfs 2 name 1 -byid The first two commands return results (hm_getmark returns the IDs of surfaces: 1,2,3,4,5). However the last command (hm_getentityvalue from Reference manual) doesn't return anything at all, (not even any error). My goal is to get the names of the surfaces (via any Tcl command). I will be very thankful for any help. Best regards, Mubeen
  22. Hello All, I am trying to create rigid elems for a spesific shell component with holes on it. In documentation I have discovered *finholesinit tcl command. However I can not obtain line number also I can not define center of circle using tcl automatically. How can I achieve this problem?
  23. I have a surface and I'm able to get the list of lines on it. But I'm not able to get the list of points on a line. set surfIDs [ hm_getmark surfs 1] *createmark lines 1 "by surface" {*}$surfIDs set lineList [hm_getmark lines 1] puts "Number of lines on the selected surface: [llength $lineList]" #Trying to extract points using line id set lineId1 [lindex $lineList 0] *createmark points 1 "by id" $lineId1 set pointList [hm_getmark points 1] puts "Number of points on the selected line: [llength $pointList]"
  24. There are 3 components, compA, compB and compC, in my model. My final goal is to find ten nodes that belongs to compA, which have the smallest distance from origin(0,0,0). Also, I want this procedure to be automatically done by tcl script. So, the steps I might take is like: 1. Get all node coordinate that belongs to compA. --> I don't know how to get those information. I have try some command like hm_entitylist, hm_getentityvalue, but in vain. Not sure which command can work. 2. Calculate the distances between every nodes and origin(0,0,0). 3. Sort the distances from small to large, and get the smallest 10 nodes' id. --> I can do these two steps in Matlab, but not sure it will work in Tcl script.
  25. Hello, I have a problem with running a tclscript via hmbatch.exe in the windows command prompt. I am currently trying to combine the optistruct topology optimization with an external evolutionary algorithm for my master thesis, therefore i want to run the tclscript without accessing the gui of hypermesh. While the tclscript runs perfectly fine when I run it from within Hyperworks, if I try to test the same script via the command prompt I get a licensing error (Error Code: 9) as well as multiple import template failures. I searched Google and the AU forums for the error code but I couldn't find a thread that was applicable to my problem. The Error Code only seems to occur when Hyperworks wasn't installed correctly or when the License wasn't correct ( e.g. Updating to a newer Version of Hyperworks without updating the License). I checked the altair_lic.dat in the altair install directory and it corresponds correctly to my ethernet adress, so that can't be an issue especially since Hyperworks itself starts without problems. Is it possible that the problem might be that the Studentversion doesn't allow the use of the hmbatch.exe? I am using the Studentversion of Hyperworks 14 on my ASUS Laptop (OS: Win8.1). A textfile with the full prompt input and error output and the software specs is attached. Also the same errors occured while using hmopengl.exe Thanks for taking the time to read. hw_error.txt
