Sizing by cost
« on: June 07, 2016, 04:33:31 PM »
Hi there,
Is there a way to size by cost rather than weight?

Sorry for the late reply. Yes, there is a way to change the objective function to cost. You define the cost density on the material, then you change the mass-cost weighting factors in the backdoor data options.

After sizing for cost you can print the cost/mass summary in the bill of materials report.
See: http://hypersizer.com/help_7.2/#Form-Graphics/Topics/bill_of_materials.php?Highlight=cost

I hope this is helpful.
