How to Control Mid-node Writing ?

During translation to CAX files, VMoveCAE writes only the corner nodes values by default. The mid-nodes in higher order elements are not considered. This module shows how users can change the default setting to retain the mid-nodes in VMoveCAE GUI or batch mode.


  1. Start VMoveCAE and load a CAE file with mid-nodes.

  2. Go to Settings->Preferences to open the Preferences dialog box. Uncheck Ignore mid-nodes checkbox.


  3. Click on the Save CAX icon to save the file. The output CAX file will contain the mid-nodes as desired.

Batch Mode

The translation of mid-nodes can be enabled in batch mode using the “–enable-mid-nodes” command line option.
