- Start VMoveCAE:
Invoke VMoveCAE GUI by clicking on the desktop
shortcut of “VMoveCAE ”.
- Click on the “Load
Model” tool: Click on the “Load Model” tool to
invoke CAE file browser.
This opens a file open
- Browse and select CAE
file: Browse to the location of the CAE file and
select it. In this tutorial, we use a LS-Dyna d3plot
file that is provided with VMoveCAE samples. It is
located at “%VCOLLAB_DIR%\VMoveCAE \samples”
directory. Now either click on “Open” or press enter
- VMoveCAE displays
parts and results: VMoveCAE now reads the selected
CAE file and extracts the part and result information
from it. The list of parts is shown in the “Geometry and
Features” window under the “Geometry” tree. The list of
results is shown in the “Results and Properties” window
under the “Results” tree.
- Click on “Save CAX”
tool: To translate all the parts and results, simply
click on the “Save CAX” tool.
This opens a file save
- Enter CAX file name:
Browse to the desired location of the output CAX file
and change the file name to the desired. Please choose a
directory different from VMoveCAE samples directory as
you may not be having permissions to save it there. It
is also good keep the VMoveCAE samples directory clean
by not saving the CAX files into it. Now either click on
“Save” or press enter
- CAX translation:
VMoveCAE now translates the CAE file and creates a CAX
file with all the parts and results from it. A busy
cursor will be displayed during the translation. A
successful translation results in popping up a
“Translated Successfully” message box as shown in the
following figure. When the translation fails, a
“Translation Failed” message box appears.
