Additive Manufacturing Simulation from Start to Finish

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

3D printing is evolving from a rapid prototyping tool into a robust manufacturing methodology.  This transition adds structural performance to the ‘fit and finish’ requirements of rapid prototyping, and this great advancement in additive manufacturing is made possible with simulation.  CATI is combining our simulation skills and additive manufacturing experience with the latest software tools to provide valuable analysis from the earliest stages of design, through the AM process itself, and into the field.  When topology optimization is coupled with […]

Abaqus Equation Solvers

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Both linear and nonlinear problems in FEA require the solution of large systems of linear equations. The solution and storage of these equations have a significant impact on the overall analysis performance. There are two options for linear equation solvers within Abaqus Standard: Direct Sparse Solver and Iterative Linear Equation Solver. Abaqus uses the Direct Sparse Solver by default. This is a good general purpose solver with excellent stability. It returns an exact solution using the Gauss elimination method. It […]

Updating The Simulia License on a Flexnet License Server

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

This following method seems to work well. There are other procedures that work too but it is easy to get into a situation where the license server is down or using the old license and this can sometimes be fixed by rebooting the machine. Look for the “Abaqus Licensing” program in the start-button groups on the license server. This will start the LM tools graphical interface. Click on the “Start/Stop/Reread” tab inside that program The text box at the bottom […]

How to Install Abaqus 2017. Download the “tar” files from Simulia using the link provided in their automated email. The contents of these tar archives must be extracted in a way that allows them their contents to overlap directories. One way to do this is by using 7-zip: select all files, right click, 7-zip “extract here”. This should produce a single subdirectory named “AM_SIM_Abaqus_Extend.AllOS” containing the installation software within. If using fe-safe, extract and install it first so you can […]
