Customized Graph Settings in Abaqus 2016/2017

By | January 30th, 2017|Abaqus FEA, Mechanical Engineering|

I will show you how to set the axis labels and legends to 24pt, and the axis labels (Energy / Time) to 18pt as new default options using “Save Display Options” and with Python. Both methods can be used to customize other settings such as background color (I prefer a solid white background), the averaging threshold etc. […]

Use reverse engineering features to repair a surface

By | November 4th, 2016|CATIA, Design, Design, Engineering, Experience, Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering, Reverse Engineering, Tips&Tricks, Videos|

Today, many boat’ hulls that are designed from different CAD software contain connectivity errors, such as holes, gaps, overlaps, bumps, patch singularities, tangency defect, etc. These problems disallow the “offsetability” of the hull’s surface. This article will show you how it is possible to use reverse engineering tool to transform a tesselated surface into a proper surface. It is also suitable for STL and Scan model. […]
