simulation not finishing?
2 Replies

Any idea why a simulation would not resolve?  I have run this same scenario a number of times before without issue.  Now it gets to 99% and hangs there.  When it solved, it took about 5hr.46min.  Now…Continue

specifying units in Material property table in reports

Is there a way to specify the units that are listed in the Material Property Table?  I input properties in the Custom material in IPS, but the report has material properties listed in MKS. …Continue

how much hard drive space?

Wondering if there is a rule of thumb for how much hard drive space is required - maybe by the grid resolution or something?I'm working on an assembly that is maybe 8'(ft) x ~6" x ~12", but it is…Continue

I am working with the BETA and I have input a number of materials, Stainless steels AISI 316L Sheet, Plate, & 317L Sheet & Plate.  The names are quite similar.  I create a new material by…Continue

"I just saw this again and want to note that the builds of Scan&Solve Pro after 2017.4.27 are much more miserly about usage of hard drive space for integration. ~Michael"

Any idea why a simulation would not resolve?  I have run this same scenario a number of times before without issue.  Now it gets to 99% and hangs there.  When it solved, it took about 5hr.46min.  Now it gets to 99% in about 4 or 5 hours, then just hangs there.  This one has been running for 21hr.32min. and is still at 99%. (Should I cancel it, or might it still resolve?)  The only thing I changed is to move two faces on the left support (where the Z-only restraints are) to lengthen the span.  I…See More

"Yes, units in the the reports matching those chosen for the simulation would be great Michael, I look forward to it. As a work around, I just modify the .html file & change the units there. I suppose I could make up a python component in…"

"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…"

"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…"

how much hard drive space?

Wondering if there is a rule of thumb for how much hard drive space is required - maybe by the grid resolution or something?I'm working on an assembly that is maybe 8'(ft) x ~6" x ~12", but it is highly detailed (see image) and in order to get accurate results I have resolution at 440874 elements.  On running the simulation my HD ran out of space about 3 times.  The simulation generated 300+GB of integration_.tmp files and locked up the machine.  I have since moved some files and have 400+GB…See More

WIP materials library not keeping values

I am working with the BETA and I have input a number of materials, Stainless steels AISI 316L Sheet, Plate, & 317L Sheet & Plate.  The names are quite similar.  I create a new material by clicking copy and then rename & adjust the values.  I work in Inches, pounds, etc. & so I change the drop-down at the bottom when I input values.  However, after I close SNSPro (click Done so it saves) then re-open in the same Rhino file, the units of the values I input in inches, pounds, etc.…See More
