Training to Empower Your Teams

Many Femap users have view preferences that differ from the default view settings. This API provides an alternative way to apply common changes to the view settings compared to saving and loading view templates. It imports a Nastran model, runs the View Color Swap API that comes with Femap, randomizes property colors, displays by property color, turns off the display of nodes and coordinate systems, and sets the color of filled edges to black. This API can also be used in Femap models that are already open by canceling out of the “Import NX Nastran File” box. Use this API as is or update it to match your own view preferences.

Note: This API calls the View Color Swap API from your local FEMAP directory. Before using, please check that the directory path (C:Siemens…) is correct for your setup and update as necessary.
