What is Groundcheck? Femap & NX Nastran Technical Seminar

May 09, 2013

There are so many options within the Femap Analysis Manager and for the majority of analyses, there’s no need to mess with them. But as engineers, we always want to ask “What does this do? How does it work? Why is this here?”


For me, the Model Check page of the analysis manager stirred these questions. I finally stopped automatically clicking the “Next” button and started to investigate the Groundcheck options.


In this technical seminar we will explore the Groundcheck options with some example models to determine what these options do and when they are useful. In addition to the Groundcheck overview, I will present a “fluffy” API that uses the GFXArrow object to assist in making attractive Femap graphics.
