  1. Dear Matheus, I guess it's fine to post them in the misc area. Regarding the Design Viewer: have you checked that you are looking at the right results table (see Screenshot)? Cheers, Heinrich
  2. Dear Matheus, you are absolutely right. Indeed, complex models can benefit a lot from parallel computing. Unfortunately, up to the latest CAESES 4.x no such option is available (except for the settings referring to multiple external tools running in parallel during an optimization that you mentioned). However, one of the mayor changes of our upcoming release CAESES 5, is in fact the full parallelization. If you are particularly interested in this feature you can stay tuned via our newsletter here: https://www.caeses.com/news/newsletter/ P.S: Often times it makes sense to take a closer look at what particular part of your geometry slows down the update -- you can use the profiler (go to help > start profiling, then trigger a model refresh, i.e. by changing a design variable and then go to help > stop profiling) to get statistics of the most time consuming objects in your model. Cheers, Heinrich
  3. Dear Mr. Luyu, you can use the attached feature for this. Kind regards, Heinrich importIges.fdf
  4. Hi Louise, I am not familiar with this specific format. If you can get your hands on a IGES, STEP that would be very comfortable. An STL will also be good and I think it's more likely they have this available from a 3D scan. Otherwise you can check if maybe the PLY contains not much more than point coordinates anyways. In that case, you could write a feature to import the file on your own. Cheers, Heinrich
  5. Dear catcoOol, With regard to shipflow you might want to check the shipflow manual/documentation I am sure there is plenty of material available. CAESES-wise all you should need are separate sectiongroups which will be used by shipflow for automatic mesh generation. Cheers, Heinrich
  6. Dear Lavesh, it's just a user-defined design variable. The skew in this project is defined as a function of normalized radius r/R. In the screenshot you can see how it is defined from 4 points as a B-Spline-Curve: If you take a closer look at p04, you will se that it's y-component is in fact the value you choose for SKEW_TIP: Hence, if you modify this value you modify the value of the skew at the blade tip (maximum radius) which changes the radial distribution of skew as shown in the following animation: As a result, the blade itself will change in shape accordingly: Hope this helps. Cheers, Heinrich
