Click to view contentHi. This is my first post. In many cases I find out the way, thanks to another post but now i cant.   I have curved beam. I need apply radial force like in my picture. Have a look. I set beam then ref. is plane on the top of beam. Everything seems fine. Click OK and pop up says: "choose ref. plane". I have to set up my force perpendicular to… (Show more)

Hello, I want to buy a new simulation Workstation.  Which Workstation is the better of this 4 configurations: Dell Precision 7820: Intel Xeon Platinum 8256 3.8GHz, 3.9GHz Turbo, 4C, 10.4GT/s 3UPI, 16.5MB Cache, HT (105W) DDR4-2933 1st Dell Precision 7820: Intel Xeon Platinum 8168 2.7GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo, 24C, 10.4GT/s 3UPI, 33MB Cache, HT (205W)… (Show more)

Hello All,   I have recently started using the report publisher to save time compiling results of simulation studies, especially useful when multiple simulations are run on the same part. Lately, however, the report generating tool has become hit-or-miss, often skipping important information like mesh properties or transient response graph. For… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello,   I try to check mesh quality of a 2D simplification in my static study and realized that compared to a Solid Mesh for Planar 2D Mesh the aspect ratio statistic is missing.   Is this a SW bug, missing feature or is it simply not necessary for a 2D simplification?

Click to view contentHi, is possible to have compression only support of face in static analyse of the part?  I mean that the support is active only when the force is acting against the support (only 1 direction), in reverse direction not. Please see attached pics.   Thanks

Click to view contentI am working on a simulation of an assembly that is tied down to a floor. I assumed a frictionless floor and applied a roller fixture to the entire base of the assembly. When I applied a substantial inertia load to the assembly against the tie-downs, I expect the case to want to lift off the floor somewhere just from deflection of the base.… (Show more)

Hello All,   I am currently doing a simulation on an assembly and when I try to mesh all the parts in the assembly (which are of different sizes) the mesh is failing and even after I apply Mesh Controls to all the parts separately, the error is still there. The part is a bit complex so I'm not sure what to do now.  I have attached the part and… (Show more)

Maybe I didn't search right, but does Simulation have log files for runs?    I have a run that worked fine the other day, but today fails with no error messages.    Then it failed saying there were no applied loads (there were, and nothing I did would change the "!" in the assembly tree afterwards, so I had to kill SW)   I deleted all of the… (Show more)
