Anybody enjoying NeiWorks?

(OP)
(this is a duplicate post in the Solidworks forum)

We ended up purchasing a seat of this software, as all our design is done in SWx it just made sense.  However, as I'm progressing through FEA I'm becoming a bit annoyed at a lack of functionality.  This is mostly on the post-processing side.  

The front-end is very nice, auto-meshing will update straight from your design changes.  But I'm not even sure if you can query results in SolidWorks, there's some of that in the NASTRAN Editor, but not quite what I had in mind.

Is anybody else using this program, are you having more luck with your results?  

RE: Anybody enjoying NeiWorks?

We use it but also have FEMAP.  I know they are adding a lot of new post-processing stuff in their V9 release of the Editor and that all of that will be going into NEiWorks as well.  I agree there is some functionality I would like to see sooner than later.

RE: Anybody enjoying NeiWorks?

NEiWorks is still a little new and has some catching up to do.  While it has all the basic post-processing capabilities, we will be adding much more functionality over the next couple months.

You can give one of us in support a call, or email and we can work out a solution that works best for you.

It is very useful on the design end, you can update a mesh and re-test with the changes in a very short amount of time.  The main weakness is in the post-processing aspect.  Noran has been very helpful though and lets you use their standard FEMAP on consignment until NeiWorks catches up.  

I just wanted to know if there was some functionality within NeiWorks that I was missing.  It seems not too many people use it from what I can tell...
