1. Hello NX12 this function is very good.
2. I installed this NX11.1 this plug-in can not be used.
3. The material is not used, but the material has been given.

Is it possible that you have multiple bodies in this part and the material was not assigned to all bodies, or a body occupying the same space?  I just tested NX11.0.1 and having assigned a material, applied constraints and load cases, the optimization was successful.  The only time I get that message is when a material is not assigned.

HI BenBroad

Have found the reason, very grateful.

Because this plug-in does not support the Chinese NX lead to not use, set to English on the OK. Hope to do some optimization in Chinese.

We are aware of the non-English lanugauge support and looking to see how we can address this in the future.

Hello,
I've got the same problem since installing Frustum topology optimization. After starting the setup optimization, the notice "No material assigned to the design space" appears.
Is it the problem that I'm using a german version of NX11?

Thank you for your help.

Hi,

 

I am facing a similar issue in NX12 : when clicking on Setup Optimization, the error message "No material assigned to a design space or a scenary body" pops up.

I am running NX in English.

 

I can see in manage bodies menu that column "Material" is set to None for my design space.

However, even after assigning a custom material to it using Assign Material menu, the "Material" field of the Manage Bodies window remains to None.

 

However, after changing custom environment to another containing no site dpv file, assigned material correctly appears in the dedicated column and the error message does not pop up anymore.

 

Any idea about where this might come from? Seems like some preference in dpv file is causing the issue...

 

Regards,
