The RTM Utility menu consists buttons that provide shortcuts to functions in HyperMesh. The layout of the buttons mimic the process flow required to set up a model for RTM.

The main Utility menu is shown below, along with descriptions of each macro button.



Solid Meshing Wizard

Opens the Solid Meshing Wizard, which facilitates meshing the solids either with solidmap, tetMesh or CFD mesh. See the Solid Meshing Wizard panel for more details.

Split Prisms to Tets

Allows you to split all prisms (6-noded pentas) to tetras

Material Data

Opens the materials database, from which you can edit materials, create new materials and select and assign material properties to components.

Create Table

Creates 1D and 2D tables as per the user inputs. This tables can be used in BC’s assignment

Boundary Conditions

Create/Edit BC

Allows you to define and assign boundary conditions on element faces.

Check Undefined BC

Identify the external faces without loads.

Check Duplicate BC

Identify duplicate loads in the model.

Process Data


Displays a menu that allows you to specify run control parameters.

Extract Points

Allows you to define solution monitoring points in the mesh. The HyperXtrude solver prints detailed solution history at these monitoring points.

Estimate Time Step Size

Estimates the appropriate time step size of the analysis. See the Estimate Time Step Size section for more details.

Estimate Injection Pressure

Calculates the max injection pressure. Refer Estimate Injection Pressure section for more details.

Model Summary

Displays the summary of process conditions, materials assigned, BCs created, and element statistics of the model.

Export Data

Export Data Deck

Allows you to create HyperXtrude data files.

Launch Solver

Starts the HyperXtrude solver using the current model, existing data deck, or a restart file.
