simulation help and instruction

WJTWJT Member Posts: 2 PRO
The email references a video in the "Notes on mates" section but I don't see a video.  Where can I find the video?  Also, the link for simulation help directs me to the enterprise landing page and not the simulation landing page embedded in the hyperlink.  I have tried incognito, clearing cache, signing out, etc.

I am attempting to simulate stresses from internal pressure on a vessel assembly that is screwed together but not having any success so far.

    I added the video to the welcome post.

    @DIWJT
    What are your issues with the pressure vessel assembly sim? Is it with regards to applying the pressure load, or with the convergence of the result? I would definitely recommend double checking your mates to make sure that your DoF are completely defined

    Hi, today I just had access to simulation, I am so excited to get started. However, I haven't been successful because I think I am missing the FGS Material Library. How do I get that loaded? I tried to add it in but could not find it anywhere. Please help!

    You should have the link in the welcome email to the EVP

    I have already activated simulation using the link provided in the welcome email. It is an issue I encountered after I start using it. I have everything else except the FGS Material Library, which I think is stopping me from running the simulation. 

    I figured to make it clearer, I snapped a screen shot

    Please use the link below to find a public document of the model shown in the training video.  This document contains the simulation materials library, which you can add to your list of material libraries:

    If you saw the picture I posted above, I have already done that. But that is the result I got, the FGS Material Library is still missing, if it was contained in the supplied document, how do I extract that? Thank you!

    This is the message I got when I tried to add the library.

    Greetings and my apologies for the difficulty.  Please follow the steps below and let me know if anything still appears amiss.

    Best!
