    Hello Bobby, Are you looking for documentation on the ADAU1701? This is what I found http://www.analog.com/media/en/technical-documentation/data-sheets/ADAU1701.pdf. If you would like to set up the ADAU1701 using I2C please read page 24 of the above manual. With solidThinking Embed, you can then easily set a microcontroller up to send the I2C signals to your ADAU1701 without writing code. This way you can emphasize on setting up your ADAU1701 correctly. Unfortunately Embed doesn't currently support Atmel. I recommend the Texas Instruments Launchpad 28027 or the more powerful 28069

    Hi there, I have been working on optimising a bracket design and inspire has produced a suitable optimised model. I would like to refine the surface finish of this model using the polyNURBS feature. The issue is that the model includes a feature which resembles an I-beam, but PolyNURBS turns this into a cylindrical shape. Is there any way to closely follow the contours of a shape more closely with the PolyNURBS tool? Please see the attached images for clarification. Thanks in Advance! Nigel

    Find here a new document for those who are not familiar with casting. In this document, you will find answers to typical questions like: Which casting process do I need to use? Where do I position the ingate? How do I setup the process? How do I analyze the simulation results? Casting_Analysis_Document_4.1.pptx

    Starting 2016, the Trim tool accepts multiple input surfaces and curves. No need to combine the input bodies. Always check whether the body is a solid using Analyze - 'Tolerance check' tool. This helps avoid failures downstream.

    Hello, Please keep in mind that this is a design software, not really a CAD program. But nevertheless it is possible to create rudimentary dimensions. These dimensions can be positioned, are associative or non-associative. You can switch from modeling to drafting environment and automatically create views. Take a look at the attached pictures. Best Regards, Mario

    Looked at the model Arjun...clever, but complex - but clever.

    Hello again, Here is an updated model and example optimization. Find attached the model file. The example is a topology optimization (objective: max. stiffness, % of space volume). Best Regards, Mario model0817_CleanUp.stmod

    Hello, I would consider the following things: The constraints and force are not connected to the solids (non design), since they are attached to free points. This will be the reason for the error message. All longitudinal and vertical inner beams are modeled twice There are a lot of intersections and so it is a problem to find clear contacts for the solver. You get a warning message before the run (in my version 2017.3) At all, try to model a flat solid plate between the two non design borders. Then you get a idea on how a optimized support structure looks. After clean up point 1 and 2, I could do a structural analysis (see attached picture). I did not try to perform an optimization, since it is useless for me. Best Regards, Mario

    Hi Again Arjun, You got me thinking when you suggested using "File-Import/merge" and I found another way to transfer camera views. Normally I always group my camera views into a folder (just to keep things in order) so I thought, what if I just copy/paste the folder with all the camera views into the different versions of Evolve, and it worked. I found that you can also do this between different files. For example, if you have some nice camera views in one file and want to use the same camera views in a new file, just copy/paste them. You just need to put all your camera views into a folder. Hope this can be of some help to others as well. Steve

    Hi all, recently we finished a project in collaboration with ASCO industries in which we made the redesign of a gooseneck bracket which is produced by additive manufacturing. The complete optimization and design is done with Inspire. I hope this can INSPIRE some among you :). If you want more information about the project you can use this link Best regards! S.

    Hi Arjun What you suggest to build inner and outer surface was my way so far. I just thought I could save some time.

    Hello, Yes. Use the "Cut Modify" Tool to slice solids by planes. See attached picture. Best Regards, Mario

    Yosef, can you please elaborate on your above point? Inspire can optimize for max stiffness, min mass, but for now you can't fix the CG and then optimize for that location.

    If you have a group of surfaces that make a closed volume and want it to be a solid you just need to select the Combine tool and select all the surfaces. This will make the resulting object a true solid.

    Hi Ffog, With Inspire 2017.3 the Lattice optimization will allow you to compare different performances for a Topology Optimization and Lattice Designs. At this moment, export is not supportet. If you are an advanced user, you might use Altair Optistruct and Altair Hypermesh to do further investitations for Lattices. Kind Regards, Felix
