An option htpermesh mesh stretching around 1D domains and connectors solved as clusters has been added. Remeshing is now available for both auto-bead and isosurface parameters. Contact summary in script format is available.

Significant time reductions can be achieved when using the tool to tetmesh CAD data. New and updated Connector Realizations. Within the latest version there are also updates to the surface projection and tolerance algorithms.

This format has been implemented for elements, sets, and properties. Sliver tetra element fix. The robustness of the algorithm has been improved; more use cases are now supported. With the broadest set of direct interfaces to commercial CAD and CAE systems, HyperMesh provides a proven, consistent analysis platform for the entire enterprise.

You can now convert shapes to enforced displacements and vice-versa.

There hypermesu numerous options that allow the boundary nodes and internal nodes to move, as well as options that allow complete control over whether you wish to fix either sliver or wedge, or both types of elements. This functionality allows lines to be offset along their direction of curvature either continuously or variably.

See Model Browser for a complete explanation of the Model Browser. NX and NX2 readers have been removed. The boundary layer thickness of the resulting mesh is closer to the user-defined target than in previous notees. You can swap contacts and targets, and add and delete elements in a contact pair.


This is more flexible than the area connector feature. The Auto Contact browser appears in the Utility menu.

Available Product Updates

Several new line projection options for map-to-sections and line difference have been added. New optimization browser view. This is the default behavior. New API commands to calculate the physical properties of solid geometry.

Issues related to the Convert panel on the Tool page have been fixed. New and improved Model Hypetmesh. Focusing on engineering productivity, HyperMesh is the user-preferred environment for all CAE modeling tasks ranging from geometry clean-up to high-quality automeshing and analysis set-up.

You can now turn off and on morphing of connectors outside domains.

There is an additional parameter called minimum jacobian; this option essentially controls the proximity of the solid mesh to the original features while ensuring the solid mesh meets the pre-defined element quality.

There are additional features that allow a partial fill of the selected volume along with direction control for the partial fill. The performance of solid geometry import for the CAD readers that import solid entities has been improved. This tool lists all types of contact definitions present in the model. New element configurations have been added to the special second order element creation macro. Adhesive support to connector property scripts.

You can use options such as color by properties. A typical example is a powertrain application, however the tool is designed to be a generic aid for tetmeshing. Automesh using free lines is a new feature where instead of using the feature edge or automatic feature edge detection, you can use the lines option.


New API commands have been added to calculate the physical properties of solid geometry volume, center of gravity, moments of inertia, mass. The old style visualization pop-up has been replaced with a new visualization GUI for controlling visualization options for connectors, constraints, loads, morphing, topology, systems, and vectors.

Improved solid geometry import performance. New mesh flow functionality has been introduced in the automesh panel. New panels and functionality. Previously, point load applied on nodes rotated to local systems was not properly handled. The new generate solid mesh option is available for both the Loose and Tight shrink wrap algorithms — the output is an all hexa mesh model.

Connectors can be morphed by type, for example, bolts and welds as clusters where as, seams as stretchable. If you would like to revert to the old behavior just tying to the top and bottom rings you can edit the hm.

Improved feature capture – preserve rounded bead midline. Nodes will continue to be written in command format until a future release.

Mapping and constraining domains, nodes, and morph volume edges to analytic surfaces described by algebraic equations can now be performed see map to geom and morph constraints panels. Issues related to mass calculations in summary templates for BEAMS and composites have gypermesh corrected.

Morph constraints and morph volumes are now available from the renumber panel.
