My students' testimonials
Let me first congratulate with you for the AWESOME content you are putting together: I can say that there’s nothing up to this level to date, so please keep going! As a young CAE simulation engineer, I have always had to find the way by myself to shed more light on topics not covered while at Uni or to get a reasonably correct answer to some of the many questions I’ve been posing myself during the past years on various problems regarding materials modelling, failure theories applicability, fatigue and contact mechanics. I really want to thank you for the massive effort you underwent to provide me and other people with such valuable knowledge
“I have learned a lot from your composite modelling course. My knowledge on FEA has increased a lot after taking your course. Will there be a course on writing subroutines like UMATs?”
“Abaqus/Scripting is a powerful tool to automate any task in Abaqus using Python scripts. This means that it is possible to automate and control any action performed in Abaqus and, consequently, save a tremendous amount of time both in the PreProcess and PostProcess stages. […] I highly recommend this course provided by TecnoDigital School and Miguel Herráez”
"Abaqus scripting with Python is a very well-structured methodical course, filled with abundance of value and knowledge gained over many years, leading students through well thought out and fun examples, supported by brief theory introductions. Style of teaching is easy to understand and follow, individual modules are broken down into shorter easy to absorb packages of information gradually building up from the very beginning to the end. Miguel is very knowledgeable and provided solutions and feedback whenever I ran into difficulties. I have found the course very enjoyable and found it almost like a good book that I was unable to put down until completed. I want to also emphasize the value that comes with lifetime access and new updated content. Amazing content, I highly recommend the course"
“Miguel is able to highlight the importance of automating any tasks in Abaqus, going step-by-step in a very didactic and clear way, supported by a great collection of practical examples. The knowledge gained with the course was, is and will be applied directly in both academic and industrial environments. I highly recommend this course and, also want to thank TecnoDigital School and Miguel Herráez for sharing this knowledge”
“I have just completed the course Abaqus/Scripting with Python and, firstly, I would like to say congratulations. It has been a really interesting course, from which I take lots of resources to implement. I would like you to make new courses with the advanced topics mentioned at the end (optimization, user interfaces…). I hope to see new contributions and courses soon!"
“Thank you, Miguel! It was very detailed and useful, and I found all the answers to all my questions. I had a gap in fracture mechanics, but now I have a wide knowledge that allows me to effectively model the behavior of a composite structure. Thank you very much for your efforts and very good presentation. Looking forward to the next one!”
“By far you have made that anybody can follow the course. You provide all the tools required so that anyone who has ever programmed can follow the course perfectly. Definitely, it is a course made for all levels. I think the course is extremely useful and I would repeat it again for sure. I have felt the course is made taking care of every detail"
“I started your course on composites. You saved my life. I can now speed up a lot of my research. It was the best day of my PhD until now. Thanks a lot!”
“It’s good to start discovering the ability to automate any sort of operations in Abaqus by means of Python scripting. Thank you Miguel Herraez Matesanz for this wonderful course”
“(…) it is a very useful course to understand the interface with Python and the examples provide very clear guidelines on how to use it in the workflow with Abaqus. Regarding the quizzes, they are very nice to put attention to some key points. A lot of material is covered, and quizzes help in refreshing and settling some topics (…). Finally, I would recommend the course to Abaqus users, because it’s a very good intro to Python scripting and impressive results are achieved even with the student edition of Abaqus“
"Learning to interact and automate Abaqus simulations using Python Scripting has really unlocked things I could have never imagined prior to taking up this course. As a structural engineer, I have been using Abaqus for several years, but I always relied on the software graphical user interface (GUI) to run my simulations. This course has completely changed my perspective of Abaqus and has truly unlocked lots of possibilities for me. I'm currently using all my learnings from this course for my research. Dr. Miguel has done a fabulous job in using apt examples to demonstrate how Python scripts can be used to automate tasks, customize simulation workflows, and analyze simulation results. Highly recommended for anyone who uses numerical solvers to tackle complex engineering problems!"
“I have just completed the Simulation of Composite Materials with Abaqus course. I have to say this has been such a great course from the very beginning till the end. Very well presented, explained and structured, combining theory, references, methodology, and practical case studies, with the thinking process capturing the essence of the topic. This course and the knowledge you share makes me want to know even more and dive deeper. I have really enjoyed this course and I am hoping to see more content and courses on composites. I would highly recommend this course. The value and content that is presented in the course saves countless hours of research and struggle"
“Abaqus scripting with Python course prepared me to be industry ready. I learned the automation capabilities of FEA and good coding rules for efficient pre-processing and post-processing. I recommend this course to both young graduates and practicing professionals”
“The course Abaqus scripting with Python is very comprehensive and I have benefited from it a lot for the automation of both preprocessing of modeling work and postprocessing the results for my simulations. Thank you, Dr. Miguel, for offering a great course Abaqus scripting with Python. The videos are very detailed explaining each command, and how to efficiently create, edit and reuse it for repetitive tasks starting from modeling, analysis and postprocessing. The access to the course is lifetime enabling me to revisit the website whenever I need to.”
"Miguel is an excellent professional who masters the subject, which indeed has been very interesting and easily applicable to my research sector. I strongly recommend his trainings”
"Thank you Miguel, actually, you teach two things at once, Python and Abaqus. Thanks again and again. I am waiting for the simulation of composite materials!!! I will watch the videos again and again […]. A lot of very important steps in building a model in Abaqus/CAE […]. Thanks again!"
“The training given by Miguel in the Abaqus/Scripting seminar has been very clear and complete. The explanations were easy to follow, pointing out the most important concepts. I work with Abaqus daily and what I have learned is an excellent starting point to automate my work"
