Numerous API requests and enhancements have been included; review Contact summary in script format is available. Improved solid geometry import performance. A search for the property script now occurs in the directory from which the feconfig. New panels and functionality.
New API commands have been added to calculate the physical properties of solid geometry volume, center of gravity, moments of inertia, mass. Fix Sliver Tetra Elements is a new tool that fixes all sliver and wedge elements based on a pre-defined 3D mesh criteria. Within the latest version there are also updates to the surface projection and tolerance algorithms. Once a pair is accepted, auto generated property and material cards are motes to the pair and this information is added in the Contact Manager table.
Element types, components, materials, property used, and pilot node name [if used] are listed for each pair. New optimization browser view. The main bulk of tetmesh model build time is usually spent in cleaning and organizing geometry. Support for mesh under surface difference in order to morph from surface-to-mesh, mesh-to-surface, and mesh-to-mesh has been added.
New mesh flow functionality has been hypedmesh to the batchmesher, the flow: Focusing on engineering productivity, HyperMesh is the user-preferred environment for all CAE modeling tasks ranging from geometry clean-up to high-quality notee and analysis set-up. This is the default behavior. Graphics selection, pre-highlighting, and highlighting for the 3D graphical representations behave as their 1D counterpart representations.
Blending through the mesh option has been added for section mapping, line difference, surface difference, and normal offset. This provides better control of midsurface extraction for these types of connections.
Finding entities and their related properties via graphic selection is very quick and efficient allowing for further editing and querying control of entities. Both options improve the flow of the mesh and also improve QI element quality.
The new generate solid mesh option is available for both the Loose and Tight shrink wrap algorithms — the output is an all hexa mesh model. Easy to use drag-and-drop functionality allows for very quick optimization problem setup by moving the optimization definitions from the optimization repository to the optimization problem definition.
Options have been added for extended edges and depenetration for on elements type constraint. Post-processing of electromagnetic results in HyperView has been introduced. New contact types such as point-to-edge and point-to-surface have been introduced. A new 3D graphical representation has been introduced for all displayed 1D elements.

You can then select components, and define tolerance and break angle to define auto contacts. Connectors can be morphed by type, for example, bolts and welds as clusters where as, noyes as stretchable. Previously, point load applied on nodes rotated to local systems was not properly handled. You can now map morph volume edge to line, surface, mesh, and equation map to geom.
Available Product Updates
The benefits of the two-layer auto-bead functionality include significant improvements to the interpolation of the topographical results. NX and NX2 readers have been removed. Significant time reductions can be achieved when using the tool to tetmesh CAD data. Within the tool, there are specific steps to help guide you through various operations such as organizing surfaces around holes, and fillet recognition and handling.
Solid bolt hole support.
You can now convert shapes to enforced displacements and vice-versa. This format has been implemented for elements, sets, and properties.
Issues related to the Convert panel on the Tool page have been fixed. New option to read tags as metadata. Note that properties still attach to the components hyprrmesh in earlier releases.
Multithreading for penetration and intersection check has been added.
