Under the old forum when I went to the Simulate/Analysis part of the forum one would perty much only see Simulate FEA and Mechanism Analysis related posts.
How in this new forum do we return only Simulate FEA related questions/Enhancement requests?
Creo User since 1994+
It's not there yet. There has been a lot of talk about this, not just on simulate but overall.
The only thing you can do now is go to additional creo questions area and then hit the "label" for analysis and simulate. Unfortunately you will only get 7 results at this point.
@Tmetcalf and others at PTC are working on the structure and maybe they are getting close to making the whole mess a little more user friendly.
It's difficult not to be jaded. I returned to this latest incarnation of the forum simply to post dozens of simulate enhancement requests before I retire thinking, maybe, perhaps ... PTC might fix finite friction before then.
There are so many categories, labels, tags here.
For Simulate we have possible labels I have identified so far :
ANALYSIS & SIMULATION
I'm sure I have seen 'Mechanica' somewhere; or was that a 'tag'?
I started posting my ideas under 'STRUCTURE' but cannot add more labels after posting
On creation of a post, not all the labels are there so they cannot be added in the first instance.
Searching other 'labels' I find I have duplicated some previous requests. Any votes for an idea, unless linked with other similar ideas by a community elf will therefore be diluted at best with the probable result that users appear disinterested. The requests I had duplicated are years old. We have 'HOT', 'TOP' and 'NEW' but no 'WE'VE LOOKED AT THIS AND THIS IS OUR VIEW, NOT GOING TO IMPLEMENT'. Were these older posts considered at all or did the user waste time?
Not only do I find this sytem impossible to use but I now find it's a race to retirement between me and Simulate. Without defining a timeline, a decision to replace Simulate with Ansys has been made at some user group meeting apparently. I cannot find info on this and I'm not going to spend hours looking. It was proposed to me in a PM yesterday that I not waste my time posting more ideas as money will not be spent on Simulate development by PTC given the direction of travel toward Ansys.
Although off your topic of forum structure and search-ability, I will park some ideas here, a non-exhaustive list of the top of my head:
I guess 'kudos' points is better than some category of space cadet I was awarded in an earlier version of this.
