SET_SEGMENT/NODE in NX for LS-DYNA solver

Valued Contributor

Dear all,

 

I am using NX NASTRAN 12 as pre-post for an explicit simulation in LS-DYNA.

 

When I create the *.fem file, I impose LS-DYNA as solver, so that when I will export the mesh, I already get a *.k file containing the keywords for parts, elements and nodes.

 

So, my question is if I can already define *SET_SEGMENT or *SET_NODE in NX NASTRAN. I can not find the icon (in the NX screen) where to define these regions.

 

Now, I am exporting the mesh and I define these commands in the LS-S-DYNA prepost, but I would like to optimize the operations by doing everything in NX.

Does anyone know how you can help me?

 

Thank you very much.

 

Kind regards,

 

Ivan

I'm not familiar with the LS-DYNA environment, but the following article in the documentation details export support by card:

 

LS-DYNA keywords supported for import and export

 

It looks like *SET_SEGMENT is not supported and only *SET_NODE_LIST_(TITLE) is currently supported for export
