Re: How to use Z88 in FEM?

no, there is no unit test at the moment. :( multiple beamsections not supported means you only can define one beam sections for all your 1D elements. The multiple beam sections are not implemented for z88 in FreeCAD. Just saw it on your sceen, you have two beamsection objects, there can only be one...

Re: How to use Z88 in FEM?

I get no results either. I need to have a closer look. This may take some time. To try if your z88 runs in FreeCAD you could do the following. - start FreeCAD - go to start wb - load 3D FEM example - activate the analysis - add an solver z88 object - select the z88 solver - click on the run analysi...

Re: How to use Z88 in FEM?

you need to set the path to your z88r binary file in preferences. bernd I did that. The error is gone, but there is no results in sight. Z88_2.png This is the file TrussZ88real.fcstd On an unrelated note. Have you tried coding for Calculix? Is there any forums/wiki/guides/... to help me learn how t...

Re: How to use Z88 in FEM?

Version: 0.17. 11084 (Git) You are using an obsolete development version, 425 commits behind the one currently available (0.17.11509). A respectable number of them were in the FEM workbench. The problem persisted after updating my FreeCAD. Selecting "FEM->Solver Job Control" doesn't do anything, wh...

Has someone tried adding to Calculix source code?

I have been trying to find any guides on how to develop new code for the calculix project, but to no avail. Has anyone tried to? If yes, then is it accessible or not? Is there a reason not to try at all?

CalculiX has neither real Shell nor real Beam elements?

According to this page https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/GSoC_FEM_Solver_Z88 "CalculiX has neither real Shell nor real Beam elements", can someone clarify the meaning of this? How do we make analysis with beam elements if that statement is true?
