  1. Hi Marcel, You can try to put 4 controle nodes on another to repair your model (bridge and surface spit). Be carefull with slicing a model within one surface only - it may not allows you to delete a polycube later! Only Polycubes (smallest part of a PolyNURBS) wich consists of 8 nodes can be deleted easily. Please find your model attached. Regards Felix BrakeSystem_repaired.stmod
  2. You are welcome! Glad to hear that - you can always check contacts within the Structure tab -> Contact -> in your case it should be highlighted in blue. That "floating" is just a visual gap. Regards Felix
  3. Hi Sander, Welcome to the official sT Forum! You are facing some perfomance issues, caused by extremly thin volumes, you should create a 2D representation of. Therefore, please use the "Midsurface" tool on the thin parts of your assembly. You will mention no visible thickness (2D) representation, if this process is successfull. As a result, your Simulation will be extremly fast. Hope this helps! Regards Felix
  4. David, I'll send you a PM. Regards Felix
  5. Hi David, Everytime a simulation is done - an analysis or optimization - the results are saved inside the *.stmod. As a result the overall filesize is increasing. If you have to keep the filesize low, just delete runs you do not need anymore directly from the Shape Explorer or the Model Browser by right-clicking -> delete. Hope this helps! Regards Felix
  6. Hi Boost, glad you found your way here! Your model seems to be constraint correctly - to get better results, you may reduce the "min. Thickness" constraint in optimization explorer, and run a "max. Stiffness" optimization first. These results can be analysed to get the factor of safefy you can achieve with a specific mass and "min. Thickness". The factor or safety from your reanalysis (based on your optimization result) now can be taken into account for the "min. Mass" optimization - which may provides you with nicer design approaches. Feel free to share your file with us if you would like to get a more detailed answer. Hope this helps! Regards Felix BTW.: There are some nice tutorials and online trainings availible also: http://www.solidthinking.com/SupportTutorials.aspx?category=Support&item=Tutorials
  7. Hi Mouse-T, I guess Jaideep already discussed this question with you in pm - but to allow our other users to gain Inspire experience I'd like to answer also public: Any topology optimization with Inspire take respect to the internal stresses, caused by external forces. If you have two loadcases with exactly mirrored resulting forces, there will be no difference for the optimization as both loadcases will cause exactly the same optimal design approach. Loadcases are equal weighted. In case you have to expect nonlinear behaviour (part/assembly behave different on tension and compression), you may have to check your final design for buckling and activate the option "sliding with seperation" during analysis. If there is a dramatic difference in the model/system behaviour, you could activate this option for optimization too. Regards Felix
  8. Hi Gilbert, thanks for joining our forum and that interesting question! Technically, you can't run a topology optimization to reduce/controle buckling, as this is a highly nonlinear behaviour combined with the mathematics in the background of Inspire. If you really have to optimize this nonlinear faliure somehow, you may have a look into Altair Hyperworks (much more powerfull but also complex) and reduce your model into a 2D representation. Hope this help! Best Regards Felix
  9. Hi Novio, please share a detailed license and issue description with our support: support@solidthinking.com Thanks! Felix
  10. Please use the Inspire online help for detailed Information: http://www.solidthinking.com/help//Inspire/2017/win/en_us/index.html?welcome.htm Felix
  11. Then you have to use a stiff connector.
  12. Hi Yosef, You can find the Inspire 2017 offline help here: http://www.solidthinking.com/help/pdf/Inspire/2017/win/Inspire2017win.pdf http://www.solidthinking.com/help/pdf/Inspire/2017/mac/Inspire2017mac.pdf BR Felix
  13. Well, you could also create another support and activate all degrees of freedom, exept the one you do not allow any movement: You have done this already on the left side of your model, to constrain the deformation. Felix
  14. Hi, please use the "measure box" to check the dimensions of your imported stl. You can use "Scale Part" to modify the dimension if needed. If your model was in the wrong scale, this should fix your issue. Let us know, if this helps! Felix
  15. Hi, you can use a stiff connector between two surfaces: Felix
