Default Siemans FEMAP NX Nastran software help

We have a simple flat bar part and have run some basic analysis on it, one force and one constraint. We really donít know if the results are accurate (due to the potential garbage input we gave it). Can someone look at our file and see if the settings are correct?

How accurate do you want it? What size mesh did you compute? How did you come up with your input force?

PM me and we can swap emails if you want. I have worked for Siemens as an NX mentor/SME. I'm not an analytical engineer by any means but I still have some contacts.

Let me guess, solid works is better?!

I've used and become familiar with all of the major players and the only thing comparable to NX is CATIA but it's still not quite all there when you consider what's possible with configurations/variants when you get into HUGE assemblies with thousands of parts.

Solidworks... lol ProEngineer!
Just started working with NX and I'm not impressed right now... but maybe it will take getting used to.
I can handle my huge assemblies very well in ProE...
