  1. Material Addition

    Hello Andy, you can use AlMg5, it is a similar alloy. Please, contact me if you need aditional info. ptorne@altair.com Best Regards
  2. where is the Log file?

    Hi Uri, Inside the project folder you'll find different files (meshing files, geometry files, solver files...) Is there any file in particular you are interested in? I attached a document that explains how to run C2C in batch mode. Best Regards C2C_BackgroundRunning_v4.0.docx
  3. Hi Uri, This problem appears when the ingates are not well set. It looks like this is a second iteration of an initial simulation, maybe during the second selection of materials something got corrupted. When this happens I recommend to start again the simulation from the original stl creating a new project. Please find attached a simulation ready to run, please check the parameters are fine and run the simulation again. Best Regards ALL-FEED_1.gid.rar
  4. There is a problem when the ingate surface is in contact with one of the surfaces of the additional components (sleeve, core,..) Meanwhile, in case you have this situation, please extrude just an small offset of the face in order to separate the ingate surface from the sleeve surfaces. (see below image) We'll work to solve this issue. Please, find below a link to download the file with the ingate meshed. https://ftam1.altair.com/message/m40gPhijtxxbaxGThmKcbB Best Regards
  5. Hello Uri, The problem is there is no ingate on this model. Please, start again from the scratch and mesh again using an ingate. This should solve the problem. Best Regards
  6. Dear Uri, There is something wrong with the configuration of the sleeves but it's hard to know what's happening just with this error message. If you send us the project folder we can debug and try to find the error. https://ftam1.altair.com/filedrop/~LMxXrO Best Regards
  7. Wheel rim casting simulations

    Hi Dinesh, Wheel rims are made by Gravity Casting or Low Pressure Die Casting processes. Both processes can be simulated in C2C. Please, take a look at the attached document. Exercises 2 and 3 talk about the setting up these processes. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Click2Cast_Training_4.1.pdf
  8. Mesh Error

    Hello Mario, Is this happening every time? Could you please try with a different model just to be sure that it isn't a problem of permissions? You can contact me to check this in a webmeeting. ptorne@altair.com
  9. Mesh Error

    Dear Otavio, It looks like there is a problem with the inlet. Could you please check the ingate has been well defined (check if it is inside the geometry and in the same plane) Please check too the element size, 1mm seems too small for this part. Best regards
  10. Hello Franz, You are right regarding chillers, if your chiller is not in an entire surface we recommend to extrude a little bit the surface of the part in contact with the chiller to be able to select it as a chiller in C2C. Regarding different thicknesses on the sleeves or chillers, what you can do is to use both components, so you can select the “first chiller thickness” using the chiller component and the “second chiller thickness” using the sleeve component and then creating the same chiller material inside the sleeves using the dB editor and conversely. If you wanted to use more than 2 thicknesses you would have to change thicknesses manually and run the solver in batch mode... Jfyi, we are moving C2C to a parametric engine and in the next version of C2C (C2C 2018) all these limitations will disappear. Best Regards
  11. 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
  12. Assigning Sleeves

    Dear Jeff, There is no limitation but we have find a bug and we are going to fix it for the next release. Meanwhile there is a way to solve this: Go to: ...\Click2Cast_4.1.0.102\problemtypes\click2cast.gid\config open the file: config.xml and change this value from 0.5 to 0.05 <Item id="PercentToCheckIsolatedElems" dv="0.05" /> open again C2C and run the mesher. This should solve the problems witth the sleeve selection while we release the next update. Thanks. ptorne@altair.com
  13. This is a small document that talks about the new feature "Niyama Criterion" you'll find in the 4.1 version. Niyama_Criterion.pdf
  14. Mesh generation problem

    Dear Semih, This is because one of the files we save in your user is not being able to be saved. Is this happened only once or with every geometry? Could you please contact me directly? We can have an online meeting to fix this problem. Best Regards Pau ptorne@altair.com
  15. convert to h3d?

    Hello Ydigit, You need to run the simulation using the console to get H3D output results. I attached a video that explains how to do it. Jfyi, next version will allow export to H3D through the interface. If you need help you can contact directly with me. Regards Pau ptorne@altair.com H3D.MP4
