Hi,

 

I like to know whether Femap can work together with Sacs software which is from Bentley.

 

How was the integration? can Femap open file from sacs and vice versa?

 

I don't know much about Femap and still learning. Please help.

There is no direct translation from Femap to SACS.  If SACS can read a Nastran deck, you can export a Nastran Analysis Set to a .bdf/.dat file then read it into SACS with their translator.

I think you misunderstood my response.  IF SACS can read in Nastran input decks (.nas, .bdf, or .dat file), then SACS can use an existing model created in Femap by exporting a Nastran Analysis Set from Femap.  If SACS can export a Nastran input deck, then Femap may be able to read in that input file as a mesh.

 

We do not have any documentation on SACS, so you'll need to contact Bentley to determine what interfaces to Nastran are available with that software.
