  2. Hi, I attached SOLIDOWRKS model and the INSPIRE model (the model imported into INSPIRE). In SOLIDWORKS the TOP view is differnt from INSPIRE TOP view. Why is this happening? Views.SLDPRT Views.stmod

  4. Hi, I saved my optimized part as both step and iges and tried to use them in other programs (Siemens NX and Hyperworks). The fitted Designspace could not be mashed in the other programs because of self intersection, the non-fitted part had the Designspace completely empty when I loaded it into the other programs. Is there a solution for this problem? Sincerely, Julian
  5. Steps to change units: 1. at bottom right corner. 2. click on drop down box. 3. select one of the following a. for metric, select MPA b. for British, select IPS Std
  6. Please elaborate on how to change units in C2E Metal.

  9. Hi Wayne. No one ever responded to your post? Yours seems to be the ONLY post regarding EMBED.
  10. I had some problems with the exporting definition. I got open geometries and underlyining surfaces when exporting. Is it possible to improve the quality of the exporintg file? Which is the best format for exporting? In the end I had to simplify the geometry in Inspire to be able to get a solid in Creo Software..which was not the best option for me as I get a different part shape. Thanks David
  11. Hello, This does not seem to be right. It seems Inspire read FE-models always in mm. Tested with HM2017 & Inspire 2017.1 It might be possible to add an option when importing to set the source units. Best Regards, Mario
  12. After running optimization, you can use 'Fit' option and then save it as stp/parsolid/iges. You can also create PolyNURBS which can be saved as stp/parasollid/iges as well.
  13. While exporting fem deck, make sure you are using SI system (mm), Inspire will always read fem deck in SI system
  14. @engineblock Seems like this model is not fully supported, also try adding some torque / moments, in real applications, one always see some kind of non-planer loads, those can be simulated is torque. You can send this model to me to look at.
  15. Many thanks Mario. That was exactly I was looking for. Regards
  16. Hello, Yes. Use the "Cut Modify" Tool to slice solids by planes. See attached picture. Best Regards, Mario
  17. Hi, I have just recently started working on Inspire to perform topology optimization. There is an issue which apparently I am not sure if Inspire can do or not. Like in ANSYS, there is a "slice" feature where an imported solid body (as .STEP or .IGS) can be split into multiple portions using planes. Is there something similar available in Inspire as well? I need to separate some portions of the solid to exclude from design space. And I believe I cannot do that unless I split the solid body as the design space is selected as a whole in case of a part that is single body. Looking forward to some hints. Warm Regards
  18. You can apply and analysis will run anyways, but with a warning. Also I believe, in some cases, this is ok but then you have to use your engineering judgement to interpret the results.
  19. The high stress happens outside of the design space. Those high stresses are typically taken care of at a later stage of design by more advanced optimization techniques such as shape optimization.
  20. Trying to bring a .fem model from Optistruct into Inspire but it keeps converting it to mm. So whereas the model is 1.5in long in Optistruct, Inspire makes it 1.5mm long. Changing the working units doesn't seem to alter this behaviour, so I'm stumped for now. Cheers

  22. I have some surface geometry that was exported from PolyWorks in IGES format. When I import it into Evolve, it seems that knots are only being mapped to a small portion of the overall surface. Is there a way to control the knots extent or do I need to somehow split these up?

  24. Please share your model with design space.
  25. Hi Steve, The Arc Lenght checkbox activates an internal reconstruction of the curves before to process them trough the Loft tool. It would be kind of the same if you would do that by hand on the curves and then apply the Loft tool. The advantage of having it as an option in the tool is that it is much faster and you can use it also on surface edges. Antonio
  26. Thanks again Arjun. The surfaces are much closer with that method and it also eliminated the surface artifact I had observed. I understand that the arc length profiles and arc length rails options control how evenly the isoparms are spaced, but could you explain what this means? Is it an alternate set of constraints or a secondary solution for the NURBS calculations? Thanks!
  27. Hi Steve, I took a look at your file. If you turn on the ' Arc length profiles' and 'Arc length rails' option, the issue should go away.
  28. Thanks Antonio - that does help clarify. For these three curves I would, of course, most easily get a nice surface by including all three. I'm trying to understand what will happen when I start adding additional curves to represent what will become a significantly more complex shape and if the loft tool is the best method to move forward. It's helpful to see that there's a difference between internal continuity of a surface and one applied after the fact by adjusting the edge constraint.
