mechanica n wf2 intergrated?

puppet

Moderator
i just realised i have mechanica installed on this pc. Since i never
use it i never really tried anything with it. but when loading up a
part and then going to "applications mechanica" it comes up with the
following error.



Mechanica is not available. Only FEM Mode is currently available.



but i can goto program files -> ptc -> structural and thermal -> thermal.



and some black screen loads up who's interface looks like it was made
in the 80's, (mechanican wildfire) and doesnt look like the normal wf2
looking screen ive seen screen shots of when people are working on
mechanica.



is there a way to link the mechanica and wf2? or am i missing config settings.



basically i need help getting started, since as we all know I.T guys arent very helpfull or avalivble.

first be sure that you have a pro/mechanica wf licence


if you have you must set, during the installation, the path where proe wf will find pro/mechanica

Hi Puppet!


program files -> ptc -> structural and thermal -> thermal. It's independent mode of Pro/M. You must configure proe command in order to use mechanica in intergrated mode. During installation process, point out pro/M folder at "create and configure command" window.


Hope it helpful
