Below one can find some examples of projects Madsis was involved in.
The 2D dxf parser allows the user to open and visualize a dxf file. If wanted, the user can open a dxf file using the option to close shapes if possible. They can be exported to an xml file with groups containing similar shapes depending on random, rectangular, triangular and circular shapes. The groups are defined based on the width, height or radius and/or orientation.
The 3D CAD modeller, allows the user to visualize different types of 3D CAD files like step files, stl files, or engineering input files for example. The user can define materials and specify the lighting. Reference planes can be created and from there projectionpoints can be defined in order to project them on selected faces. The projections as well as the reference points can be exported to a text file and be used as a reference to compare to real measured items for example.
The periodic boundary conditions (PBC) creator, allows the user to open a representative unit cell mesh (e.g. .input file) and automatically generate the PBCs, constraints, material orientations as well as the groups of elements and nodes needed to calclulate the homogenized mechanical properties of the calculated RUC. The homogenization step can also be done with Madsim. The different files are ready to import into Abaqus.
Madsim allows the user to automatically generate contact zones and cohesive layers starting from a mesh. If needed the cohesive elements can also be wrapped around all elements automatically.
Sometimes it can be time consuming for an engineer to create a Mode II model ready for calculation in Abaqus for example. Using the user friendly interface in Madsim, this can be achieved in minutes, where the different parts and groups are created automatically.
Starting from a CAD / Mesh file, Madsim allows the user to voxelize or convert the model into a lattice structure, that can be used for calculation or 3D printing for example.
A module in Madsim, allows the user to read images and to automatically extract the yarns in different directions with orientations and create a 3D stl / extarnal mesh of it to export.
The images of a CT scan can be converted into a 3D model depending on the selections / transformations done by the user like filtering, smoothing... This can be done in order to create a 3D model for 3D printing like for example a bone, or create a model of voids found in the CT scan in order to calculate starting from a created 3D model the porosity...
