A proposal to simplify modeling Baffle features in a cooling system.
Currently, every baffle requires two separate lines to create a baffle. Users can either make a small V configuration or the two lines can be coincident. However, if at any time the nodes get merged on the baffle line then the solver interprets the baffle as a dead-end. This issue is especially problematic if using HyperMesh to generate a Moldflow mesh file.
Eliminate the second line needed to generate the baffle. The necessary pressure drop should be automatically calculated by the solver. The solver should also be able to tell which direction the water is moving based on the coolant inlet boundary condition. This is similar to other softwares on the market.
Some of my customers would be interested into having this kind of analysis in Simulation Insight.
Do you think it could be possible?
The Job Manager Window is not very flexible in my opinion.
WIth larger projects (many studies) and long study names, I am always struggling with the slider bars in the window. I cannot size the left side of the JM window by dragging it. (Only the right side can be extended.)
Can you make the sizing of the JM window better / more flexible?
I hope to make geometry from a result of the Warp analysis.
I carry out Insert analysis.
I import the model that I transformed by a Warp by the analysis in 3D-CAD, and I do CAD data of the part
and Boolean, and want to modify a part.
Furthermore, I want to carry out Insert analysis using them again. However, it is modifing it in a part by manual labor because I can not Boolean it in .stl.
Please add a function to make geometry from a result of the Warp analysis. Many customers give the similar demand to me.
We want to confirm "Ram Position" at the end of filling in analysis log.
Now, when Filling control makes [Ram speed vs ram position] of [Absolute ram speed profile] and carried out analysis Midplane or Dualdomain, information of "Ram Position" is listed in analysis log while driving , but is not displayed after Velocity/pressure switch-over.
We can refer to it when we regulate it with an actual machine because information of "Ram Position" is listed in analysis log at the end of filling.
For example, we want you add the following lines.
Ram Position at the end of Packing = XXX mm ==================================================
Please add the function that can fix the position of the node that I appointed.
When a node to become the reference point carries out in an existing state, placement may change to the node that I do not want to move.
I carry out Remesh and Fix Aspect Ratio in the state that there is a node to become the reference point. Then placement may change to the node that I do not want to move.
I am troubled without being able to measure an accurate result when a reference point moves before I notice.
In addition ,in models having multiple reference points or large-scale model, to take time for a correction very. So I want a function to fix the node that I do not want to move beforehand.
Currently, orientation elements is lost when exporting warpage result in stl at least in midplane. I think it is possible to keep the orientation of the element in line with the orienation of the face inside the stl file.
My team and I always sort layers in a specific order to make navigation easier between users - however I spend a lot more time than I would like to just reordering layers since one can only move a layer up or down 1 position in the order. It seems like a no-brainer to add the same drag-and-drop ability that is present in the studies pane. Folders would also be great, but even this would help.
I want to request an implementation of the function, “Restrict to visible entities” in the “Aspect Ratio” menu of “Mesh Diagnostics”.
When one use this function with a model mixing DD and 3D meshes, e.g. in Cool(FEM) analysis, the result shows high aspect ratio elements of both of the DD and 3D elements regardless of “Restrict to visible entities” option is checked and one of DD or 3D mesh elements are hidden.
Because it takes long time to get highest aspect ratio of each element using “Mesh Statistics”, it is necessary to use “Aspect Ratio” with being checked “Restrict to visible entities” worked and should display high aspect ratio for either of DD or 3D elements efficiently.
I think this idea will be useful for the other Moldflow users especially in case of Cool(FEM) analysis and coupled analysis of Moldflow and CFD, in future.
When opening a project, all folders in the task pane expand fully by default. In a project with a lot of studies, this can be a bit of a nuisance. I usually have to collapse almost all the folder to get the most recent info visible within the window. If the folders could reopen in the state (collapsed/expanded) in which they were when the project was closed, that would be ideal. At the very least, making the default have a project open with all folder collapsed would be an improvement.
Sometime while running a big analysis we cannot open any other mf files . if we have urgency to run any small analyis.it is not possible to open another mf file .. suppose any pause option available it is best. again we can start analyis after working hours.
When gas passes polymer melt in Gas-assisted Injection Molding in Overflow well, the following error message is output, and analysis stops.
** SHORT SHOT ** Gas blows through melt front.
Even if gas passes polymer melt by the real molding in Overflow well, I may judge that a Part should not have a problem.
If there is it in overflow well because I want to let analysis of 1 cycle complete on a condition same as true molding in Moldflow, analysis, please add the optional function which do not stop even if gas passes polymer melt.
Normally we are facing trouble to select correct mesh type for the product . whether use DD or 3D .Instead of this ,if it is possible You can change the option like always use 3D meshing.
then try to improve the mesh accuracy , result accuracy and reduce the meshing time and analyse time if it is possible.
Dear Plastic Experts,
It would be very useful and less frustrating, if JOB MANAGER in SYNERGY gives PERCENTAGE COMPLETION of ANALYSIS Job going at back-end with INSIGHT. (Currently percentage of process is shown only for MESHING).
it could be interesting to be able to manage the number of differents entities.
the idea would be to set the number of nodes from 10000 to 19999 for example.
The aim is mainly because on FEA models, it is more useful to retrieve elements belonging to a part. and obviously, keep these numbers when exporting the mesh.
some times it is very useful to export the deflection data related to a local coordinate system. But with the examine function the number of nodes is limited and with the partan export the data is always related to the global system
