While interactively morphing on a plane, the plane can be inferred using the selected handles. New element configurations have been added to the special second order element creation macro. You can now map morph volume edge to line, surface, mesh, and equation map to geom.

The boundary layer thickness of the resulting mesh is closer to the user-defined target than in previous releases. Result types such as magnetic field intensity, magnetic flux, magnetic vector potential, current densities, and magnetic forces are now supported.

Numerous API requests and enhancements have been included; review Altair HyperMesh is a high-performance finite element pre-processor that provides a highly interactive and visual environment to analyze product design performance. An option for mesh stretching around 1D domains and connectors solved as clusters has been added.

Available Product Updates

The tight algorithm has been improved to capture more features without the need to manually define features. This is the default behavior. Solid bolt hole support.

After solid selection, the solid map panel takes you into the interactive mode where you can control the mesh density, element type, and mesh method before creating the solid mesh. If you would like to revert to the old behavior just tying to the top and bottom rings you can edit the hm. Options also exist to specify the start point of the line and the type of line to create when the direction of curvature changes within the line.


You can interpolate surface function for mapping a mesh to, or creating a mesh through, a surface interpolated from nodes or lines. A search for the property script now occurs in the directory from which the feconfig.

The parameters in the. The old style visualization pop-up has been replaced with a new visualization GUI for controlling visualization options for connectors, constraints, loads, morphing, topology, systems, and vectors. New optimization browser view. The benefits of the two-layer auto-bead functionality include significant improvements to the interpolation of the topographical results.

New and updated Connector Realizations. A new 3D graphical representation has been introduced for all displayed 1D elements. Within the tool, there are specific steps to help guide you through various operations such as organizing surfaces around holes, and fillet recognition and handling. Issues related to the Convert panel on the Tool page have been fixed.

Controls allow the original geometry to be trimmed, deleted and stitched, or simply for the new fillet surfaces to be created without modifying the original input surfaces.

You can then select components, and define tolerance and break angle to define auto contacts. New contact types such as point-to-edge and point-to-surface have been introduced. Improved solid geometry import performance. Individual entities are organized into the relevant components, with the components being organized into relevant assemblies. Significant time reductions can be achieved when using the tool to tetmesh CAD data.

Handles on morph volumes may be moved along, and extended beyond morph volume edges. New API commands to calculate the physical properties of solid geometry. The Auto Contact browser appears in the Utility menu. Previously, point load applied on nodes rotated to local systems was not properly handled.


Once a pair is accepted, auto generated property and material cards are attached to the pair and this information is added in the Contact Manager table. New API commands have been added to calculate the physical properties of solid geometry volume, center of gravity, moments of inertia, mass. This provides better control of midsurface extraction for these types of connections.

HyperWorks Product Updates

Both options improve the hyermesh of the mesh and also improve QI element quality. ANSYS solver does not support any formula for sets. Connectors can be morphed by type, for example, bolts and welds as clusters where as, seams as stretchable. Different formula options can still be used to create node and element sets. Support for mesh under surface difference in order to morph from surface-to-mesh, mesh-to-surface, and mesh-to-mesh has been added.

You may also drag existing morph volumes or use elements as a base.

Morph constraints and morph volumes are now available from the renumber panel. The introduction of the optimization notds browser view allows you to setup multiple optimization problem definitions within a single HyperMesh session. Handles may be scaled with respect to a node or with respect to the centroid of selected handles.

Show and reverse normal hyperemsh also possible at any time. Automesh using free lines. The ability to apply translate, position, and reflect shapes to selected nodes has been added. Only constant beam section and thickness elements are considered.
