For multi-core machines, the performance gains are considerable now that the penetration check utilizes all available CPUs.

Automesh using free lines. As a result, the robustness, performance, and quality of meshed output has significantly improved when comparing the same feature in previous releases of HyperMesh. Handle locations can be interactively manipulated along the morph volume edges morph panel. Post-processing of electromagnetic results in HyperView has been introduced. A new capability for creating adhesive realization using seam connector building continuous hexa using lines as input has been implemented.

In the Model Browserthe interactive entity control capability between hypermesn browser list and the graphics area now supports all HyperMesh entities. New mesh flow functionality has been introduced in the automesh panel.

HyperWorks Product Updates

Several new line projection options for map-to-sections and line difference have been added. This provides better control of midsurface extraction for these types of connections. Note that properties still attach to the components as hyperesh earlier releases. Altair HyperMesh is a high-performance finite element pre-processor that provides a highly interactive and visual environment to analyze product design performance. Fix Sliver Tetra Elements is a new tool that fixes all hypermdsh and wedge elements based on a pre-defined 3D mesh criteria.

Numerous API requests and enhancements have been included; review Block format is the latest of the two. Handles may be scaled with respect to a node or with respect to the centroid of selected handles. There is an additional parameter called minimum jacobian; this option essentially controls the proximity of the solid mesh to the original features while ensuring the solid mesh meets the pre-defined element quality.


You hyprmesh swap contacts and targets, and add and delete elements in a contact pair. Shrink wrap meshing now includes an option to enable solid mesh generation. Handles on morph volumes may be moved along, and extended beyond morph volume edges. Adhesive support to connector property scripts has been added for: The old style visualization pop-up has been replaced with a new visualization GUI for controlling visualization options for connectors, constraints, loads, morphing, topology, systems, and vectors.

ANSYS solver does not support any formula for sets. OSSmooth multi-layer auto-bead generation. Adhesive support to connector property scripts. Mapping and constraining domains, nodes, and morph volume edges to analytic surfaces described by algebraic equations can now be performed see map to geom and morph constraints panels. With the broadest set of direct interfaces to commercial CAD and CAE systems, HyperMesh provides a proven, consistent analysis platform for the entire enterprise.

Contact summary in script format is available. You can now turn off and on morphing of connectors outside domains.

Generic shape for model type constraints such as length, volume, angle, and radius can be automatically generated. The performance of solid geometry import for the CAD readers that import solid entities has been improved. You can use options such as color by properties. Tetramesh Process Manager Hypermsh is a new process based tool to enable users to tetramesh models in a reduced timeframe.

Mass Calculations in summary templates. A typical example is a powertrain application, however the tool is designed to be a generic aid for tetmeshing. An nktes for mesh stretching around 1D domains and connectors solved as clusters has been added. Updates to Fix 2nd Order MidNodes utility.


Unoffsetable nodes for regular tetra meshing with quad transitions can be handled. New element configurations have been added to the special second order element creation macro. Significant time reductions can be achieved when using the tool to tetmesh CAD data. New and improved Model Browser.

In addition to components, elements, nodes, and tags, assemblies are now supported as link entities for connector realizations. Improved feature capture – preserve rounded bead midline. You can interpolate surface function for mapping a mesh to, or creating a mesh through, a surface interpolated from nodes or lines. New panels and functionality.

Available Product Updates

Connectors can be morphed by type, for example, bolts and welds as clusters where as, seams as stretchable. Support for UG NX6. Within the latest version there are also updates to the surface projection and tolerance algorithms. Only constant beam section and thickness elements are considered. New and updated Connector Realizations. The ability to apply translate, position, and reflect shapes to selected nodes has been added.

Show and reverse normal is also possible at any time. You can update contact definitions, properties, and materials of contacts at any time. DOF is supported for more 1D element types including weld, rigid, spring, and bars.

Fix 2nd Order Midnodes utility has been updated with options to allow movement of the internal middle nodes and an option to move boundary nodes along geometry first or move off geometry, if required. The performance for ShrinkWrap has also improved.
