Hi at all,

does anybody know if it is possible to determine surface nodes of a 3d model by using a script/macro ?

1G       6       0       0  000000
 1     152       0       2       0       0       0       0       0
-1.000000000E-03 0.000000000E+00 4.000000000E-03

--> surface node
1G       6       0       0  000000
 1     153       0       2       0       0       0       0       0
-1.000000000E-03 1.000000000E-03 2.333333333E-03
1G       6       0       0  000000

--> in body node

 

programming language didn't  distinguish!

Hi,
it should be possible.

First, I had a look in the API Reference for Autodesk Simulation Moldflow Insight.

You can find this via:
In the user interface Synergy, at top-right of user interface, beside Help-button, the question-mark "?", there is a small arrow-down.

Click the small arrow down and select "API Reference"

In the API reference there is no direct method to get the surface nodes of a 3D mesh, the nodes at the part-mold interface.
(Or the nodes of an triangle side of an tetra, that has not an triangle side in common with another tetra triangle side.)

You need to create an algorithm that find the tetras with the triangle side nodes not connected to, in common with, another tetra triangle side.

You can find nodes of elements via Object GetElemNodes  ( Object  aElem   )
Please, see the API Reference for more information.

Hope this helps.


Regards,

Berndt
