Importing material properties from a FEM in HZ 5.8.11
« on: May 01, 2023, 03:39:01 PM »
I recently gained access to an older version of hypersizer (5.8.11), and I am struggling to identify a way to import material properties from my FEM. Does that functionality exist in this version of hypersizer, or am I only able to import materials from other hypersizer databases?

You cannot import material data from FEM (.bdf/.dat) in v5.8. However, you can import the FEM and have it automatically setup the laminates, plate thicknesses and bar sections if you sync-up the FEM material IDs before importing. However, that requires you to manually define the materials prior to importing the FEM.
