If you’ve chosen PolyUMod and/or Veryst Material Database:
  • PolyUMod and/or the Material Database for all FE Codes (Abaqus, ANSYS, LS-DYNA, MSC.Marc, COMSOL Multiphysics) will be installed on your computer.
  • This step is not applicable for Unlimited MCalibration. If you’ve chosen MCalibration only, you will not see the following two screens.

  • Yes, make or change my user’s default abaqus_v6.env file.
    • We recommend using this option for a first-time PolyUMod installation, or to add support for a new version of Abaqus.
  • No, do not make or change this file
    • Use this option if you want to update PolyUMod/Veryst Material database without modifying the Abaqus version you have been using.
    • You can modify abaqus_v6.env file manually: see Additional Installation Steps (PolyUMod for Abaqus).

PolyUMod for ANSYS

ANSYS uses an environment variable (ANS_USER_PATH) to determine where to search for user-materials. The installer displays the current ANS_USER_PATH value If the environment variable is not set, the Current Value is empty Choose one of the options and click Next >:
  • Yes, make or change this system ANS_USER_PATH for all users

    • address (in this case the default 5053 port will be used): e.g. remoteservername, 10.0.0.111
