Scripts of The Month: May 2015

Script #1252: Print Contact Force to .csv File

This script uses a MotionSolve “Sensor_Evaluate” statement to write to a .csv file the time, x, y, z, and magnitude components of a contact force whenever the force is active at every solver time step. Not a good script for sliding contact because it will create very large .csv files when the time step is small.

Script #1253: Increase/Decrease the Animation Mode for Multiple Windows

This script can be Increase/Decrease the HyperView animation mode for multiple windows.

Script #1254: Update Dyna Nodal Thicknesses with the Given Scale Factor or Offset Value

After running the script, a widget pops up with two options: 1) Scale 2) Offset.
It doesn’t go away unless you click the X button. So you don’t have to run the script twice, if you want to both scale and offset. If you click any option, it takes you to HyperMesh panel for element selection. For scale, it doesn’t let you select a negative number.

Script #1255: HyperGraph Font Increase/Decrease Toolbar

This script creates toolbar buttons to increase/decrease all fonts in the active HyperGraph window, like in Microsoft Office products. Buttons are added to the Page Edit toolbar.
