Re: Unable to use Topology optimisation Extension

Hi Erik (or anyone else who might know) Is there a quick way I, as a humble user, can find out if my installation has T.O. enabled? It's an installation of Creo 4.0 M060 - was told that this feature was going to be back-ported into Creo 4.0 from M040. Is there a menu option, say, that I would or wouldn't see in the application itself? (I don't have user access to the installation)

Re: Unable to use Topology optimisation Extension

I am pretty sure Topology optimization is Creo 5 only. I tried out a demo of it and PTC said it only worked with Creo 5. I have Creo 4 M060 and it is not in Creo 4. In Creo 5 there is a a button for it under the applications menu but it won't run if you don't have a license and you haven't checked the check box to install it during the install.

Thanks Chris - that makes sense. I was starting to think I was looking for a black cat in a dark room that isn't there.

 

The same source promised we'd have Simulate Live (where FEA uses GPU cores for massive acceleration) by now but I gather the backporting of that has been put back to M090 in April.
