Author Topic: COM access to the Update FEM Process that preserves dat structure  (Read 1502 times)

As stated in the Hypersizer manual:

The FEM update process for Nastran is different from the iteration FEM process. In FEM update the goal is to preserve the original structure of the source FEM as much as possible (in HyperFEA the goal is to rapidly generate a new FEM to get an updated load path).

The Hyper FEA type of FEM update is covered by the Project.UpdateFEM method - is there a class/method exposing the other type of FEM update that preserves the Nastran dat file structure?

Thanks

August

Hello,

HyperFEA is actually using the HS API to run, so the output FEM will be the same format between HyperFEA and the API Project.UpdateFEM method, as you identified.

At this time, there is no other FEM update method in the API. This would be a useful feature and we would consider adding it in the future.
