hotkeys/keyboard shortcuts
« on: October 27, 2014, 09:56:51 AM »
Is there a comprehensive list of all of the keyboard shortcuts in hypersizer?

I'm learning the software right now and some of the tutorial videos show actions like switching between load cases, load directions, and creating cut planes using keyboard shortcuts, but the narrator never mentions what button he's pressing.

thank you in advance,

-Josh

Hi Josh, the keyboard shortcut keys (hot keys) are listed here.

To switch between Nx, Ny and Nxy loads press [pgUp] and [pgDwn] to switch between load cases hold [Shft] and select [pgUp] and [pgDwn].

Is there an option for inserting a cut plane? I can't even find it in any of the menus. I'm trying to get a view of the laminate, as it's applied to the assembly, from either the flat, built-up, or exploded views. One of the tutorials shows this being done, and it's actually mentioned in the version overview page: "Create a cut plane by dragging mouse across model to display a cut section of individual ply layers" but dragging the mouse is how the part is rotated. There must be something else I have to do.

To create a cut plane, hold [Ctrl]+[Shft]+[Alt] then click and drag the cursor over the section you want to cut.
