HM-3530: Change a Curvature

In this tutorial, you will change the curvature using map to geometry.

In this exercise, you will use the line difference approach to morph a bumper to conform to a new section line.

This exercise uses the file, which can be found in the file. Copy the file(s) from this directory to your working directory.

Open the Model File

In this step you will open the model file,

  1. Start HyperMesh Desktop.
  2. From the menu bar, click File > Open > Model and select

Morph the Bumper

In this step, you will morph the bumper.

  1. Open the map to geom panel by clicking Morphing > Map to Geometry from the menu bar.
  2. Change the geometry selector to line difference.
  3. Select the from line (Line A) and the to line (Line B), as shown in the image below.
  4. Toggle the morphing entity (2nd column) from map domains to map nodes.
  5. Select nodes >> displayed.
  6. Use no fixed nodes (2nd column, 2nd row).
  7. Use map by line axis morphing with a 1.0 mvbias and fxbias (column 3).

    Figure 1.
  8. Click map.
    The profile of the bumper is changed to follow the new section line.
