How do you make nodes & points visible in Altair HyperWorks?

logo

Skill-Lync

In addition to supporting a wide range of CAD and solver interfaces, HyperWorks is used by thousands of engineers worldwide to create and maintain their models, making it the ideal choice for the majority of industries and domains.

Using the HyperWorks student license? You might encounter an issue in visualising the nodes and points after importing a model. This issue can be resolved by changing some environment variables. 

Let us look at a step-wise procedure to change environment variables in Altair HyperWorks. Start by closing the HyperMesh software. 

 

Step 1: 

Type “Environment variables” in the windows search bar.

 

 

Click on “Edit the system environment variables” from the search results. 

 

Step 2: 

Once the “System Properties” dialogue box opens up, click on the “Environment Variables” button at the bottom of the dialogue box. 

 

 

Step 3: 

Now, the “Environment Variables” dialog box should open up, displaying the user variables for admin and system variables. Click on “New” from the “System variables” section.

 

 

Step 4: 

The aim of this process is to create a new environment variable for HyperWorks. On clicking “New”, a new dialog box opens, requiring you to type in the variable name and value. 

 

 

In the “Variable name” field, type in “HW_USE_OPENCL” (without quotes) and in the “Variable value” field, enter ‘0’ (zero) as seen in the below picture.

 

 

Click “OK” in all the subsequent windows. 

 

And voila! You are done creating the new environment variables. Now open the HyperMesh software and try creating or importing a model. All the nodes, temp nodes and points should appear in the model wherever required.

What is Tetra Meshing?

Tetrahedral is a four- nodded solid element that can be generated through the tria element by creating a volume and also through the existing volume of the geometry. These elements are used where the geometry has high thickness and complexity. The image attached below is a representation of a Tetra element. The Tetra element will have 4 triangular faces with four nodes joining them together

Realizing Connectors In HyperMesh

A connector is a mechanism that specifies how an object (vertex, edge, or face) is connected to another object or the ground. By often simulating the desired behaviour without having to build the precise shape or specify contact circumstances, connectors make modeling simpler.
