Changing Element Normals from FEM Viewer
« on: October 10, 2014, 02:48:03 PM »
Hi all,

I'm a fairly new use to HyperSizer and am still learning some of the ins and outs. I'm trying to change the element orientations in the FEM viewer but am unable to do so for bar elements (the FEM is from a Nastran deck). I can change the normal direction of quads but HyperSizer doesn't seem to let you modify bar elements. Do I need to go back to Nastran and change the orientation there, or is there a way to do this in the FEM viewer that I am missing?
