      Dear Users Our Commercial and Academic users around the world can use these same forums here as before i.e. the Altair Support Forum , Commercial users from India with solver queries can go to the Solver Forum for India Commercial Users , Academic Users from India and AOC India Participants are requested to go to the Forum for India Academic Users and AOC India Participants , We will be tending to all queries in all the forums promptly as before, thank you for your understanding. 

Single Point Incremental forming

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I am working on a SPIF simulation (sometihing like the image below), but I am still struggling on some basics concepts from RADIOSS, since I am new to it. Do you guys suggest any tutorial or reading for learning this? It has been a bit difficult to find tutorials in this direction. The main points I have difficult are regarding the creation of the tool path and also the set up of the Adaptive meshing refinement. I went through the help ADMESH info, but still I don't know which parameters to use and so on.


Thanks for considering this.

Thank you for the reply.

Hum, ok, these are on the Hyperform platform. I didn't get to it because I was fixed on Hypermesh with the Radioss profile. 

Is it much better to use Hyperform?  It seems that the hypermesh platform has more possibilities, don't know... But as I said, I am new to these kind of analysis. So sorry for the foolish questions.

HyperForm is an industry proven comprehensive simulation software solution for stamping and tooling industries, and so for all manufacturing kind of simulations I would recommend you to try with HyperForm.

For RADIOSS, you can go through https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CxM52wP3_ew&list=PLQ7KUGFuVz4u5y3SvIEIU07427-gATaG6 video series which is a webinar on the basics of RADIOSS solver.

Thank you for the tutorial and hints George, I have been through all of them, they were good for learning Hyperform.


However, I couldn't find any content about continuous path, I still have no clue how to create the circular path of the tool and the setup for this analysis, which is different from the step forming one.


What I was thinking is to go for User Defined forming and with IMPDISP insert a tool path. But I don't know if I should insert coordinate points or if there is a way to input an equation with time dependency. Which is the best way to do it?

Thank you for the attention.
