Re: Problem creating material

Would you change the languarge of FreeCAD to english and try again if the problem still exists. You may post the screen again with english languarge. It would be much more easier to repeat this.

Re: OpenSees, the Open System for Earthquake Engineering Simulation

thanks to openseespy, we can write opensees input file in python format and benefit from all of python library! https://openseespydoc.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ Its a good choice but we must consider that this package is not published open source yet. If it is not OpenSource I will not do any dev in...

Re: Interesting - The Rise Of Open-Source Software (CNBC news segment)

Could Solidworks pay Microsoft to insert a different bug in FreeCAD everyday, I don't know that it would even be illegal, just frowned upon. They could try, but Patches are reviewed. I do not merge a patch into FEM if I do not had a look at the code. Especially to new devs I have a closer look. To ...

... most people don't want to lose their time and if the project shows itself as an alpha state, nobody will just jump in for a try to get an overview of the real FreeCAD potential.

Re: Which FEM Analysis Icon is the one we use ?

I have been thinking about this once again. I strongly recommend to use the Tool name for the icon name. With this it would be possible to make the icon name depended from the tool name. It would mean the icon name would no longer be hard coded anymore. At least in FEM Python this would work! If ico...

Re: Discussion: FreeCAD is not ready for 1.0

BTW: I get money for the university courses and I get some (not that much but some) money for some projects in the regard of FreeCAD, and sometimes I do some dev for FreeCAD. Means people support FreeCAD dev with money already.

Re: Discussion: FreeCAD is not ready for 1.0

here is another one. I have tried to use FreeCAD in small buissiness and at University courses. I got very good feedback. But I only used good working tools and Python. But another feedback I got right before people started to use FreeCAD was a bad feedback about the software we will use. They said ...

Re: OpenSees, the Open System for Earthquake Engineering Simulation

best would be start with result reading. ATM on any solver run of OpenSees in FreeCAD this input file will be written https://github.com/berndhahnebach/FreeCAD_bhb/blob/femopensees/src/Mod/Fem/femsolver/opensees/writer.py#L82-L244 ATM mesh is created by OpenSees, which is fine ATM, IMHO. The first t...

Re: brick20 mesh gives other results than tet10

OK tested with self weight and pressure constraint. Both work well. File attached.

Seams some problems with the node load calculations for CLOAD entry of force constraint for brick20 in calculix input file goes wrong. It will need some debugging ...
