Altair Inspire Form 2019

Altair Inspire Form 2019 includes the following new features and enhancements.

New Features: Licensing

Units-Based Licensing
Inspire Form now supports units-based licensing for both solidThinking and HyperWorks customers. To activate your license, select File > Licensing and enter your credentials in the License Setup window. solidThinking customers have the option of using Offline Mode so that you can continue to run the application when you are not connected to the internet. Details about how to activate your license are available in the Licensing and Installation Guide.

New Features: Feasibility

Feasibility Analysis Options
You can now simulate a drawing or crash forming operation when running a feasibility analysis. These new options are also available in the Analysis Explorer during post-processing.
You can now define the Coulomb friction coefficient when running a feasibility analysis.
Nesting Layout
The nesting layout is now available in DXF format.

New Features: Tryout

Automatically Configure and Build Tools
Each operation now includes the option to automatically configure and build tools, so you do not have to do this in the Preferences.
Model Setup
You can now duplicate a part using the tool configuration guide bar, so you can more easily perform several operations on the same geometry.
A draw bead force calculator has been added, so you can now calculate the drawbead restraining and closing forces based on the geometry. This simplifies drawbead modeling during die design iterations.
Analysis Run Options
You can now run an analysis on a remote server in addition to your local desktop.
When running multiple analyses on your local desktop, you can now choose between running them sequentially or in parallel.
Adaptive meshing is now supported for multistage operations only. You can enable this option from the Tryout section in the Preferences.
You can end a run by right-clicking the Run Status dialog, and then selecting End in the context menu. The results up until the point of termination are available in the run history.
Drawbead forces applied using the simplified bead model can now be plotted along with tool forces.
