M3d Finite Element Software Updates.
This page documents the new features and work in progress for
the M3d Finite Element Modeller.
||Pressure loads added for tri and quad Finite Elements. Work
in progress to add local coordinate system for defining loads and
||Local displacement coordinate systems added. Work
in progress to add thermal strains
||Results can now be output in text file format (comma
||Node/Element modify labels added and some minor improvements
to the IGES import.
||Graphic enhancements for white background
||Groups import from text file and Nastran
||Ideas universal file import fixed (nodes & elements).
Tri-element bending formulation bug fixed. New material direction display.
||Major new release.
|Known issues which we are seeking to
|J factor incorrect for hollow rectangular beam
|Sweep angle not exact for surface revolves - NURBS issue
|Node positions on circles when using nodes on curve
not exactly correct - NURBS issue
|The display doesn't work correctly with Windows 7 aero
|Highlight issue with graphics card threading, needs to be
turned off on the card.
|Still some issues with the tri-element bending formulation
