FEM import scale

Recommended Posts

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

While exporting fem deck, make sure you are using SI system (mm), Inspire will always read fem deck in SI system

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
