    How to use "Python window"

    I am interested in this topic too.
  4. Last week
  5. Hello, I am working on optimization of prosthetic wherein I am filling my optimized structure with lattice. And this is my final project for masters. So I wanted to know what kind of lattice is being used by the solver. Is it the Octet Truss Lattice, or something else? Best, Tapan.

    Hi Mario, There is local help for computers without an Internet connection. Yosef

    Installing Local Help in 2018.1

    Hello, I am not sure if there is a local help file at all. The menu shows the following point: File->Help->Help (Open the online help for Inspire). Best Regards, Mario

    Installing Local Help in 2018.1

    Hi Felix, The problem, is that the help is not associative to local help, INSPIRE looks for the help in the Internet. This is the path that is required to place the files: c:\Program Files\Inspire\2018\unity\, unfortunately INSPIRE did not go there to search for the help data. Thanks! Yosef

    Installing Local Help in 2018.1

    Hi Yosef, What exactly do you mean with "still does not work"? Can you describe more in detail? Thanks! Felix
  11. Dear Lala, Please be aware this is a user support forum where noone has to answer your questions. Additionally, please immediately stick to the common rules of communication. Kind Regards, Felix Radisch
  12. Hi, Can you check the installation package for local Help in in 2018.1? I followed the installation instructions, but it still does not work. Yosef

    Optimisation for center of gravity

    Hi Jaideep, I want to force the position of the center of mass. Yosef
  14. Hi, I was able to run the tutorial files and one of the mono material die successfully. These three successful trails are based on a huge number of failed runs. I write codes using Python, so I really would like to get involved, if any chance, to find bugs, understanding the interaction of modules, which will really benefit other users and my own research work. Thanks. Shawn
  16. hello to all .Can anyone tell me how to view design violation error after lattice optimization-(i am getting often). How to view that what design violation one has made? and also i want to ask that is there's a standard procedure or method to do lattice optimization? I didn't found any relevant document explaining the issues.

    Bug report 0508/2018

    I am doing research work on co-extrusion die, just started using click2extrude polymer from this week. I am using platform with 3rd gen i3 cpu with 16GB ram, AMD R7 200 GPU on Win 10 Pro. Seems to have lot of bugs to report. Personally I am using python for lots of engineering calculation and automation control. I am curious what will be the function of "python window"(F4)?

    Bug report 0508/2018

    when I selected a plate on "layer-1" in model browser and switched to property editor: the "general -material" is set to "default_tool", and the text seems to be editable. Whatever text I typed in, the whole application crashes.

    Motor control

    Hi... Using a potentiometer to emulate the inductor/primary current is not the best way to test this. I would like to suggest referring to the Digital Power training Kit software and documentation for correct usage.

  23. Felix Radisch I have sent you some more information regarding the issue. check your inbox. Regards. Have a good day.
  24. Thanks Felix Radisch for the response. I have not tried optimization to "max. stiffness" , in fact my goal is to minimise the mass of component by integrating lattice in it so i am choosing objective as minimize mass. And as for the min. safety factor I set it to 1.2 and by changing lattice length and min/max dia I am getting min. safety factor from 1 to 1.4 (shown in picture below). Also I would like to highlight the fact that the min safety factor is occuring on edge of hole that can be improved by fillet or removing lattice from it and all other critical areas have high safety factor.(Also shown in picture). What do you suggest now??.
  25. Hi Lala, Have you tried to turn type of the optimization to "max. stiffness"? It seems to me, your min. safety factor isn't achievable with your BCs and loads. Regards, Felix
  26. Hi there! I am having a problem with an animation. I placed a label texture in png format on my object using a white matt plastic as a base material. It shows on still renders but it disappears(the part simply shows white) when rendering the animation. Any idea why ? Many Thanks Pil


    Hi all, Myself ravinder. new user to inspire, can anyone help me in usage of inspire in linear static analysis? like can we do modal analysis with this software, in design phase itself. so which will help in optimisation of my project like COWL-NVH- ANALYSIS.... Looking foward for your help THANK YOU
  28. hello everyone.I am trying to do lattice optimization of a component in order to reduce its weight with the parameters selected - as in picture below:( Also had tried with lot of different target lengths and min/max dia for the lattice). but most of the time I get a warning message - (design violation) from analysis run. Upon checking the inspirerunhistory > optimization > (the relevent file) > progress (text document) i found text written that Realizing model #--------Lattice type is not set properly-- as in picture below: can someone please help me understand the issue and it's possible solution. Regards
  29. Sorry for the late reply. Just saw this open question. The MetaCurve will eventually be completely replaced by the Blend Curve as we add more and more features and options to it. As a result you will be able to achieve what you are looking for. And just some additional information regarding Class A surfacing. There is generally a lot of confusion about what what it is, what it means, and how to achieve it. There are "A" surfaces and "B" surfaces. "A" surfaces just means the visible/aesthetic side of the model, and "B" surfaces are the side of the model you can't see. Take a computer mouse for example: The exterior surfaces that you can see and touch are all "A" side surfaces, whereas the inside faces of those pieces are all "B" side surfaces. The confusion comes in when you start trying to define mathematically what Class A means. For every company and product the definition can be different. For some the definition can be as simple as tangential (G1) continuity as their minimum requirement, where others may require a minimum of curvature continuous (G2), or curvature continuous (G3). These are all technically Class A surfaces, but due to the automotive influence in the design culture most people associate Class A with G2 continuity or higher. But you also have to keep in mind that the higher the level of continuity the higher the chances are to introduce "wavy" surfaces because the modeler has to manage more and more points and their relationships to each other. So just because a surface is mathematically G3 doesn't necessarily mean it is the desired shape. There are a lot of things that I could get into on this, but I will leave it here for now. So can Evolve be used for Class A surfacing? Absolutely. We have customers all over the world doing this on a whole range of products. Our tools such as Loft, Sweep, Patch, Round, etc...all have options for G2 continuity. The only exception for Class A surfacing with Evolve would be automotive exterior stamped sheet-metal, which is a very special case where additional tools and control are needed and the Class A definition requirements are much higher. Hope that helps.
