90Grid - Grid stiffened Panel Family
« on: October 12, 2017, 07:56:17 AM »
Dear Hypersizer,

I have just been looking at different concepts for the Grid Stiffened Panel Family and I was looking to try and understand if the stiffeners would be better aligned in the 0 or 90 deg direction.  In the concept selection tab it only allows me to choose a 0Grid.  Has the 90 Grid been removed from the family?

Looking at the help file Software Forms/Sizing Form/Dimensions Tab/Panel and Beam Families/Grid Stiffened Panel Family it shows the options that can be selected on the 90Grid.

Is the helpfile out of date or has my installtion not completed fully?

Also the S0 has no ticks in the table.  Is this an omission or does the S0 column need to be in the helpfile?

The help file is out of date. The 90 grid has been removed from the interface.

To change the stiffener direction, you should rotate the material vectors so they are pointed in the assumed stiffener direction. You can do this in the FEM viewer. See:
