Moldlow Communicator on tablet

Status: Accepted
by csegard on ‎08-06-2014 01:30 AM

Hello,

 

As Moldflow Communicator can be use to present results to customers, it could be a good idea to have this sofware supported on tablet (any OS).

it would allow to share in an easier way results.

 

Regards

Hi All,

 

The request is fair, and ... at the moment I can tell you that Communicator in its current form is not portable to non-windows platforms because several of the licensed components we use within out product simply are not supported on these operating systems.

 

Havind said that ... if you currently save a .mfr file to A360.autodesk.com, you can visualize the results in a standard browser. The functionality of this first viewer is very limited, and it will be replaced by a new platform that is in development within Autodesk. So what currently is there is not as fully featured and it will be replaced with something that's even newer. This is why we have not published this actively.

 

We understand the request though and agree that this is valid.

cutting plane should be same in locked studies

Status: Accepted
by Active Contributor phammer on ‎05-27-2014 02:43 AM

HI

 

it would be good for analysis of several studies, if the studies are locked also the cutting plane would be the same in every study. 

would be helpfull.

Drag and drop layers for sorting

Status: Accepted
by Contributor KaindlJ ‎02-11-2014 12:10 PM - edited ‎02-11-2014 12:11 PM

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.

restrict globel merge to visible entities

Status: Accepted
by Jacky1187 on ‎10-09-2013 06:56 AM

Hello all together,

 

today if you use global merge it merges over all layers, visible or not visible.

 

Global merge need also an option to work only on visible entities, and not for all layers and parts in a study.

Selecting individually results for export is a little bit boring.

So, why don't allow multiple selection by using ctrl or maiusc as in many other windows operations?

Selecting multiple layers in Layers Pane

  • for sorting (moving up or down in list)
  • for hiding / showing multiple layers at a time
Status: Accepted
This fits in with some other ideas we have around the layers. With the current models with many different components,the number of layers can become very difficult to manage.

An Option to Dump results in between the analysis

 

In Sigma soft (competitor software similar to mold flow),

there is a option to dump the analysis in between, then stop the analysis. The, next time you open the study and re- launch the analysis, it will start analysis from where you stopped it.

 

In mold flow, we need similar option

i.e In Between; we can stop analysis instead of aborting and close the study. Then,we can re-run from, where we had stopped it. So that we can save time, incase we need to abort the analysis & re-run after some time,

Status: Accepted
Valid request. We have some experience with some of this (through restart files). This is a significant development and hard to get to work well. For the end user, this is clearly a valid request.

Option to transfer inputs

Status: Accepted
by *Expert Elite* on ‎03-07-2013 03:39 AM

I may be bit lazy to ask this option, but I feel it must be.

 

1. There must be a option to transfer process parameters, including material details from one study to another study.

or else every time with new study or with new mesh needed to apply the inputs from previous iterations.

 

or else

2.There must be a option to export process parameters, including material details from one study as a file & that should imported to other new study or with new mesh, when ever needed to apply the inputs from previous iterations.

Status: Accepted
This is a fairly frequent request and completely makes sense.

For example, when using split / tiled windows ,

 

if we select query results a part of the model on one windo, then at same time we would like to select the query results in another window of  split screen, the  the previously selected query on the other window dissappears

Good and valid request

Ability to open Logs file from job manager

Status: Accepted
by Valued Contributor tim.vanast on ‎03-27-2013 08:17 AM

I would like to add the ability to open Logs file of a job that is running without having to open the file itself.  Important as 3d files get larger and larger.  At times I do not want to open the model due to the amount of RAM required if I am already near limit of RAM.  I see this often during cooling analyses.

Valve gate Nozzle opening incation

Status: Accepted
by Maudet.Francois on ‎10-16-2013 10:04 AM

Hello,

 

It should be interesting to show on the result window the valge gate status.

For example by a red or green circle. This option could be shown on fill time, pressure, velocity, etc results.

Please see the picture attached.

Status: Accepted
Good idea. The user experience with valve gates is currently not ideal.

It's been well documented that 3d gates are much more accurate than beam element gates for 3d models.  So I'd like the ability to create a dual-domain mesh from beam elements for gates.  I would use this to easily create 3d gates.  The technology to do this already exists when you create tool files for Cool(FEM).  But it's a real pain to do that to a whole tool just to get a gate. 

 

I am ok with having to stich the new gate in myself.

Good request

Everytime that I start SIM360 Moldflow the mesher and the solver are set by default as "in  cloud". It would be very useful to have the possibility of setting them in as "locally" by default.

I think you have a good point. Thank you for bringing this up.

When there are large undercuts surfaces the clamp force is overestimated.

You have to select double surfaces and manually exclude from clamp force calculation.

This operation should be automatic.

hi

when defining a sequential gating and the valve gates are controlled by flow front and trigger nodes and the user is changing f.e. a location of a injection location AND is using "global merge" the nodes are renumbered.

afterwards all the triggernodes have  to be defined completely new.

 

when simulating big parts with lots of injection locations this can be annoying.
or the filling behaves in a unexpected way because the triggernodes have changed. when simulation time is very long this is recognised to late.

 

solution 1.: lock the trigger node numbering. so the trigger node keep their number, even when all nodes are renumbered

 

solution 2: highlite the triggernode location by f.e. an clearly visible arrow

 

solution 3: change the way to define triggernodes or triggerlocations.
at the moment the user has to "remember" the trigger node. then swich to the property of the valve gate or change to the  valve gate timing tab and enter the trigger node.

this could be more comfortable. like f.e. after highliting a node and rightclick, a menue could appear and the user could define "define this node for valve gate XY"

Have all ribbon tabs available at all times

Status: Accepted
by Valued Contributor tim.vanast on ‎03-27-2013 07:59 AM

I would like to see all ribbon tabs available at all times.  Then when I'm in Mesh ribbon, I wouldn't have to click Home, before clicking Geometry.  I could click any tab at any time.  This will result in less back and forth clicking.  And there is plenty of room along the current dark grey bar to add them all.  See attached picture.

Maximum 2 studies are allowed to be exported to mold flow results file (*.mfr) only first 2 studies of selection will be exported.

It should be allowed to export as many as possible studies.

 

Initially it was  allowed only 8 results plots to be exported per study  in earlier versions. Now it is possible to export as many as possible results.

The same way, it should be allowed to export as many as possible studies and will help in comparing more different iterations.
