  1. optimization stop at 58%

    Hi Lorenzo, you are facing a long computation here - it isn't stuck but ongoing! Please increase the min. Thickness constraint manually, or try to use the midsurface tool to avoid super small elements. There should be a thread about this topic availible in the forum. Regards, Felix
  2. Importing question

    Hi Alex, Welcome to the forum! You are describing a common issue Rhino users are facing. As Rhino doesn't have a proper geometry kernel (like Parasolid, e.g.), there are ongoing issues with simulations based on structures from Rhino. CAD systems are much better in getting a proper (watertight), geometry done. As they do not have the combination of design freedom and the accuracy of geometry, we invented "Evolve". You can check-out solidThinking Evolve, via our website - and apply for a trial: https://solidthinking.com/ProductExperience.aspx?item=Evolve Experience&category=Products Regards, Felix

    Hi, thanks for your interest in solidThinking Products. To get a quote, please contact your local distributor: http://solidthinking.com/PartnerPortal.aspx Kind Regards, Felix Radisch
  4. Minimum Thickness for optimization

    Hi, Seems like your HDD is too small to handle the amount of data, which would have been produced during your optimization. Please free diskspace or increase the minimum thickness constraint. Or you could choose another scratch directory (another disk) via the Inspire settings. Regards, Felix
  5. Optiimization not successful

    Zizhe, Check your input loads. Once you got them correctly, try again. If your loads are correct, it doesn't matter where you support your rocker. Felix
  6. Optiimization not successful

    Zizhe, All your optimization results are wrong. Your loads are representing a non-static loadcase. They are causing a momentum in your joint e.g. for your rear rocker ~ 170Nm. This is the starting point for the optimization issue you are facing. Once you got the loads correctly, you should have zero momentum in your Support. Then, you should reduce the degree of freedom for rotation of this support. For example by using a bolt or a support directly. You will not achieve any plausible structures by optimization, if you are getting extremly high stresses like you do. Our tutorial model is statically defined, by using two joints. Yours not, using just one allowing to rotate. Regards, Felix
  7. Optiimization not successful

    Hi Zizhe, Welcome to the sT Forum! At first, you might check your loads. Seems like you are trying to analyse and optimize for a non-static loadcase, which would cause movement around your support (and huge deflections). Once you got the correct loads, you should use a screw/support without any freedom to rotate. You can simply check if you did everything correctly by running a quick analysis. If you have further questions, you might take a look in the altair university: https://altairuniversity.com/academic/ Hope this helps, ~ and good luck at FSG Felix
  8. Thermal Optimization

    Hi, You can apply a temperature, which will just affect the thermal expansion. Stresses, caused by the thermal expansion are used to analyse and also optimize a part. You might take a look at the Inspire help: http://www.solidthinking.com/help//Inspire/2017.2/win/en_us/index.html?Shape_Explorer.htm Regards, Felix
  9. problem with extrusion

    Hi Ekortus, thanks for contacting us! Feel free to send me your company contact data directly via mail (radisch(at)solidthinking.com), so we can link you to our Partner in Poland. Alternativly, you could take a look at our youtube channel, containing the hole setup process for Click2Extrude - step by step: Please let me know if this helps! Kind Regards, Felix
  10. Programming in Inspire 2017

    Hi grasshopper, neither programming within Inspire or anisotropic materials are supported. Maybe there is a way to model your wire with the features we have already. Feel free to share ideas and pictures (if possible). Regards, Felix
  11. Setting of Weighting function

    Hi Grasshopper, you can maximize both simutaniously, but you can't manipulate the weightening function (which is set automatically). Inspire is using Altair Optistruct as a solver, which is calculating a compliance for each mode and the static compliance. Please see below an abstract from the topoOpt.out , located in the Inspire Scratch directory. Combined Compliance Index The combined compliance index is a method to consider multiple frequencies and static subcases (loadsteps, load cases) combined in a classical topology optimization. The index is defined as follows: This is a global response that is defined for the whole structure. The normalization factor, NORM, is used to normalize the contributions of compliances and eigenvalues. A typical structural compliance value is of the order of 1.0e4 to 1.0e6. However, a typical inverse eigenvalue is on the order of 1.0e-5. If NORM is not used, the linear static compliance requirements dominate the solution. The quantity NORM is typically computed using the formula: Where, Cmax is the highest compliance value in all subcases (loadsteps, load cases) and is the lowest eigenvalue included in the index. In a new design problem, you may not have a close estimate for NORM. If this happens, OptiStruct automatically computes the NORM value based on compliances and eigenvalues computed in the first iteration step.

  12. Save the result

    Yosef, If you have acess to 3matic from Materialise, you can import the FEM deck from the Inspire scratch folder to create a AM deck (which is a materialize format) or a huge STL. Regards, Felix
  13. Presentation of results - Inspire / Hyperview

    Mario, You might would like to decrease element size to get a more detailed look at the stress distribution. For my point of view, there is all right. We can clearly see the maximum peak of sheer stresses below the surface - so the van mises stresses. This effect is discribed in the Hertzian compression theory, which can also explain defects like pitting. BR Felix
  14. Presentation of results - Inspire / Hyperview

    Hi Mario, You have supported the lower plate. So the stress results of pretension must be asymetric. Or do you see something else? BR Felix
  15. Presentation of results - Inspire / Hyperview

    Hi Mario, By default, Inspire is using Grid Point Stresses, so we have to choose them in HV to compare. I also slightly adjusted the min/max in the Inspire legend. Hope this helps! Best Regards, Felix
