in the moment iam using the local hard disk of my computer. I would like to change permanently the working directory path to an external hard disk. How can I do that ? Iam using windows 10 and Omnis 5.2,
what do you mean by working directory? Is it the .numeca folder or another set of preference?
Hi domen, yes the .numeca folder. I would like to use a External hard drive memory. Numeca is installed on the local hard disk of my computer. By the way another question, do I have with the student license access to OpenLabs ? In the moment iam just using Omnis 5.2
The OpenLabs module in Omnis 5.2 is included in the free student license provided that the system requirements for the use of OpenLabs are met of course.
I'm not so sure having the .numeca folder on an external hard drive is a good idea to do as the speed of access is less than on a local disk. I would not recommend it. Saving your project files on an external hard drive on the other hand, is something I think should be ok. It may just take longer for reading and writing to disk.
How can I install the OpenLabs module. The email I received, or in the download area I see only omnis and fine marine.Yes I actually like your idea better too. T
his means that I have to run the simulation on the local storage, is there a possibility that the simulation is saved directly on the external hard disk than on the local storage? Oh no that doesn't make sense
OpenLabs is part of Omnis.
You can find the information how to access it in the Omnis 5.2 documentation under:
OMNIS tools > Simulation > Optional models > OpenLabs > How to use OpenLabs
Make sure to have a compiler installed (Microsoft Visual Studio on Windows or GNU C and C++ compiler (g++) on Linux).
Then just select a domain in the tree and right-click to select "Edit labs".
