HyperXtrude includes the following components from the HyperWorks suite:



HyperXtrude Interface

The HyperXtrude interface is a user profile that is built on HyperMesh. The interface includes, and is often referred to by, sub-profiles for specific processes, such as, pre-processor, user profile, or HyperMesh.

HX Solver

The HX solver reads input decks and performs the computations for an analysis. It then writes out the solution in the native HyperXtrude binary format (*.phx) and also as a full H3D file that can be post-processed in HyperView/HyperXtrude Main Viewport. The HX solver comes with its own graphical user interface (GUI); however, this is seldom used.  Throughout this document and in tutorials, the terms HX solver and HyperXtrude are used interchangeably.


HyperView is the post-processor for HyperXtrude. To facilitate the use of HyperView, HyperXtrude writes out a complete H3D file. Note that you can post-process with the full version of HyperView, but not with the light version, HyperView Player.


HyperStudy provides automatic optimization and DOE studies. A direct link between the HyperXtrude Interface, HX solver and HyperStudy enables shape and bearing optimization.

HX Job Manager

This tool starts HyperXtrude runs on remote and local machines. The tool also creates data decks for metal extrusion analysis in batch mode.
