    3D Mesh Element Density Panel Question

    The numbers are the order Hypermesh will do the mesh. Solid with number 1 will be meshed first, and then 2,3 so on. No, you can not edit them.
  2. With Nodal vector, you can do. But I don't know how to plot with element scalar.

    Adding new element in Hypremesh element library

    No way with version 14. Why not update to newer version, like 2017.2 ?

    Aerospace Tool Issue

    I think you have some issue with flange part: Check section orientation of CBEAM Maybe you have to play with "offset" to define C-Channel correctly. Without section offset, you model becomes T-Channel.

    Aerospace Tool Issue

    My question: why you choose different modelization for flange & web? How do you do to "link" between them?
  6. No Error in your out file. So what's your issue?

    Derived Results

    Maybe you mean "Derived Load case"? If yes, it's simple. When you create a derived loadcase, you have a new "derived loadcase". Once loaded this new loadcase, just choose your cylindrical as user system to show the displacement.

    3D cfd mesh

    When you see the message "71 failed elems saved", do "F5", select type "Element" and "retrieve", "reverse", "mask". You have only failed elements on screen.

    3D cfd mesh

    So check "failed elems" to understand the issue.

    How to find element size used already meshed part.

    No way! Hypermesh does not keep creating history within database. I have always some papier and a pencil on my office
  15. Here's an example of script to export all displacements of all subcase into file: hwi OpenStack; set hn [hwi ListAllHandles]; foreach hn1 $hn { catch {$hn1 ReleaseHandle} } hwi ReleaseAllHandles hwi GetSessionHandle session_handle session_handle GetProjectHandle project_handle project_handle GetPageHandle page_handle [project_handle GetActivePage] page_handle GetWindowHandle window_handle [page_handle GetActiveWindow] window_handle GetClientHandle client_handle client_handle GetModelHandle model_handle [client_handle GetActiveModel] model_handle GetResultCtrlHandle result_handle model_handle GetQueryCtrlHandle query_handle model_handle GetSelectionSetHandle set_handle [model_handle AddSelectionSet node] set_handle Add all set mydir {C:/Users/TOTO} set num_subcase [result_handle GetNumberOfSubcases "Base"] for {set i 1} { $i <= $num_subcase} {incr i} { puts "Subcase $i" result_handle SetCurrentSubcase $i result_handle SetCurrentSimulation 1 query_handle SetDataSourceProperty result datatype "Displacements" query_handle SetQuery "node.id,node.coords,result.value" query_handle SetSelectionSet [set_handle GetID]; set output [format "%s/displacement_subcase%d.csv" $mydir $i] query_handle WriteData $output; } hwi CloseStack This script is not tested yet. But maybe it can give you some ideas.
