Mech WF4 capabilities - very nice PTC

Hi all,

I just installed pre-production WF4 and was impressed to see material
support for hyperelastic materials. I was expecting to see bilinear or
elastic-plastic material model support at most. The implementation is very
nice too. There's an extensive list of material models. The interface
plots all the models against your data, automatically recommends a model and
displays the coefficients (see attached, if it comes through). This is
fantastic. We also use ABAQUS and PTC's implementation just one-upped them.
Does anyone know if your required to use h-elements for hyperelastic
materials, or did PTC figure out a way to use the p-elements? I also
noticed that tangential contact (friction) is now supported.

Looks like Mechanica just made a huge step up in capabilities. Very nice
PTC.
