Querying Solution at Text Dots

A user asked for the ability to output solution values at the location of text dots.  I've added to the documentation a script that does that.  The script can be viewed at this…Continue

Michael Freytag replied to Mike Calvino's discussion 'specifying units in Material property table in reports'
"It is not currently possible for users to change the units used for the material in the report, but I'll make a note to have something added to the next release. Presumably you want the units to match the unit system used for the…"

Michael Freytag replied to Mike Calvino's discussion 'how much hard drive space?'
"Hello Mike, The amount of space required for the integration files is related to geometric detail and the resolution setting.  In an ideal world where everything is made of cubes, the size of the integration file is proportional to the…"

"Yes, it's there.  After you select [Add] restraint, there is a command line option to select LinearEdges."

Michael Freytag replied to Mike Calvino's discussion 'WIP materials library not keeping values'
"Hello Mike, Sorry for your troubles with the material editor.  I'll look into this and let you know what I find. As a temporary workaround for editing isotropic materials, you can use the material editor in SnS 2014. The plug-in…"

Michael Freytag replied to V Phanindra Bogu's discussion 'How I do convergence test on STL file ?'
"That number is simply a limit that will allow simulation to be performed on most geometries without running into problems with memory consumption. ~Michael"

Michael Freytag replied to V Phanindra Bogu's discussion 'How I do convergence test on STL file ?'
"Use the resolution slider to manually set the resolution.   Run the simulation at that resolution.  Then view the results and record the displacement or stress results for that resolution.  Repeat at whatever resolutions you are…"

Michael Freytag replied to V Phanindra Bogu's discussion 'How I do convergence test on STL file ?'
"SnSScript does not support simulation with meshes.  Nobody asked for it, so it was never added.  Instead you'll have to run convergence tests on meshes by setting the resolution through the user interface. 500000 elements is the limit…"

Michael Freytag replied to Aaron Everman's discussion 'un-warping warped plastic parts'
"Yes, I think I understand.  For mostly flat parts the "rotation" component might be negligible, but for shapes with towers or other protrusions, their rotation due to bending will no longer be insignificant.  My suggestion…"

"Contact is on the "wish list" but it is an advanced capability that probably will not be added in time to help with your immediate problem. Could you do something like the following: 1.  Restrain facets of mesh A that are in…"

Michael Freytag replied to Aaron Everman's discussion 'un-warping warped plastic parts'
"Hello Aaron, Yeah, if you want to virtually smash your distorted parts into contact... Scan&Solve isn't going to be able to help you much.  Sorry. ~Michael"

Michael Freytag replied to Aaron Everman's discussion 'un-warping warped plastic parts'
"Hello Aaron, Scan&Solve can compute the amount of bend you will get when pressures are applied to areas of your choosing.  You can then use the deformation slider to scale these deformations (essentially scale the effects of the pressures…"

Michael Freytag replied to Michael Freytag's discussion 'Querying Solution at Text Dots'
"Hello Daniel, In the evaluation version, the SnS dialog interface does not save solution results on the object.  What you can do instead is call Solve(GUID,resolution) inside your script.  Documentation:  …"

Michael Freytag replied to Giovanni Fabroni's discussion 'Stress and strain principal value'
"Hello Giovanni, Thank you for discovering this.  It appears that a bug crept into the WIP code for the computation of the component strains, and thus the component stresses and principal stresses and strains.  The bug appears to be on the…"

Announcing Scan&Solve™ for Rhino: Stress Analysis Made Easy

Scan&Solve™ for Rhino is a new plugin from Intact Solutions that completely automates basic structural testing of Rhino solids. No simplification, healing, translating, or meshing is needed. Depending on complexity of your shape and chosen resolution, you may need to wait for a few minutes, but the results are worth the wait!


Simply pick the material, choose restraints and specify loads on the faces of the solid model:…
