FEMAP VB scripting explaination and conversion to NX Simcenter

Hi all,

 

May I seek your assistance to explain on the script above, as in what are the script trying to do.

 

Besides, it will be a big bonus if anyone can help us to convert the script from FEMAP to NXOpen language.

 

Thanks and regards,

Wei Shin

The scripts are relatively simple, they use FEMAP's face picking function to pick the face of an element.  Within this command, the user is prompted for a single face, and an angle, FEMAP then walks the connected free faces of either a shell mesh or solid mesh, stopping when the face to face angle exceeds the input value.  It first script then lists these faces, together with their areas, and then a final total area.  

 

The second script expands on this and lists the nodes of each individual face.

 

I am not familiar with NX Open code, I would advise posting on the Simcenter 3D Forum and see if someone there can provide advice on creating an NX Open equivalent.

 

If your meshes are in Simcenter 3D/NX CAE, you can export the model as a NASTRAN file, and then use FEMAP and your scripts to extract the same information.

 

Mark.
