transform constraint example

Postby bernd » Thu Jan 26, 2017 10:26 am

I downloaded the transform constraint example from here: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=17127#p135715 applied a new material Calculix-Steel and a new Solver calculix. But the transform constraint seam not to work?

you have applied the constraint incorrectly.

please find attached the example file.

works great. It was wrong in the downloaded file. Propably because the transform object was changed during develpment circle. I missed to set this to cylitrical.

thanks very much !

Ok it works with the posted example, but not if I would like to do it completely new. Attached another example.

@Bernd,

it gives unsatisfactory results when I use the "Fusion001" geometry, when I switch to the "Fusion" geometry is works fine.

I may found the culprit. If the GMSH mesh object is used and the mesh is done inside the active analysis, than analysis group meshing is active which gives blind fast inpurt file writing, but there seams to be some bug with this group meshing and the transform constraint. If the mesh is meshed outside the analysis I get good results in any case for GMSH meshes too. I need to have a look at this. May be I simply make a property to bre able to manually deactivate the analysis group meshing.

Thanks for the help ! cheers bernd :D
