Export Material Titles to Nastran Deck
« on: August 13, 2014, 09:54:12 AM »
Whenever Hypersizer exports a Nastran deck, it titles the MAT cards as 2D Orthotropic Material, or Isotropic Material, etc. This makes it difficult to keep track of what material a property or layup is using when you import the deck into a pre/post processor like FEMAP.

It would be very helpful if Hypersizer copied the title of the material that is in the database when exporting a new deck.

Would you prefer just the material name? Should it also include the specification and/or material type from the HyperSizer material definition?

I think the material name is sufficient. If  it is a composite material, the form also be useful. For example AS4/8552 Fabric vs AS4/8552 Uni.
