Calculix 2.16 Windows 10 Launcher

Post by PerdixInc » Sun Dec 29, 2019 4:53 am

Greetings!
I really need a link to Calulix 2.16 Windows 10 launcher. The link I used is Calculix 2.10 (https://sourceforge.net/projects/calculixforwin/)
This link yields a .bat file, which sorta works. The FEM runs, but the results are apparently parsed out and I get the error message:

"The used Calculix version 2.10 creates broken output files...."

So a need a ccx.bat for Calculix 2.16 I think

Thank you in Advance

there is a directory named 03.3 which was modified in 2019.
Have you downloaded that windows file and tested it?

BTW, I'm not on windows so can't confirm

if you are on win 10 you should have latest ccx included in FreeCAD allready. No need to install external ccx.

Greetings from snowy Colorado!

Thank you for suggesting I revisit the sourceforge link.

I revisited the sourceforge link and ultimately found under the CL33-windows_64bit.zip file under the https://sourceforge.net/projects/calculixforwin/ link. There is 2.15 in the zip file, and other versions as well. (My mistake was trying to get 2.16, which led to a bunch of links that wanted to download unwanted stuff on my Windows 10 machine.)

So I was able to get the FEM link to 2.15, and the Calculix simulation ran. Now I need to learn how to display the results.

BTW when I installed FreeCad there was no Calculix or other solver simultaneous installation.

Moving Forward!

have a look in the bin folder of your FreeCAD instalation. There you will find ccx binary AFAIK
