Hi, I'd like to solve a sim for ANSYS. I would like to specify parameters for the solve. Does anyone know how and where to specifiy them from NX user interface? for example: ansysxxx.exe -b (batch) -p name of licence -np number of processors Right now my problem is that the used licence (for example Ansys mechanical) is not the one I want (for example Ansys Structural). yours truly, Cyril L.B
Hi Stefano, thank you for your answer. I know which "feature name" to use for my solve. My problem is that I don't know where to put it in NX7.0. I have set the ANSYS Solver location in UGII_ANSYS, and in the windows location of the customer defaults, and also in solver parameter (in the solution) Therefore I can launch the calculation. But the licence feature used is not the one I want.
So, I would like to know where to specify the -p ane3fl (for example) option, in the NX interface. yours truly. -- Cyril Saintigny
There is no specific place to do this in the NX UI. Ideally, Ansys should be configured to obtain a license on it's own through an Ansys environmental variable or an Ansys config file.
One thing you can try is to add your '-p ane3fl' to the string entered for memory on the Solver Parameters form. I believe what NX does is writes out a -db to the Ansys command line, then pastes the string you specify in. So, if you leave Memory for database set to 512, the command line used to launch Ansys contains "-db 512". If you modify the string to '512 -p ane3fl', then NX should write the following to the Ansys command line: "-db 512 -p ane3fl"
Hi, thank you for your help. I received more info from GTAC. In fact you can specify the ANSYS product feature name in the ugii_env_ug.dat or ugii_env.dat configuration files in NX installation directory /UGII/.. This seems not be documented at all in NX help. ugii_env_ug.dat is overwritten during MR installation. ugii_env.dat is not overwritten during MR installationMR. It is stated ugii_env.dat should be updated. I had mistakenly tried to put environment variables for Windows, but they are environment variable in the above files! for example (solver path): UGII_ANSYS="C:\Program Files\ansys_inc\ansys111\win\v111\ANSYS\bin\intel\ansys111.exe" Then for choosing the ANSYS product feature (here Ansys PROFESSIONNAL NLT). The list of "Product feature names" is in chapter 6, table 6.1 for ANSYS 12.1 UGII_ANSYS_PRODUCT=Prf yours truly, L.B
