Various graphics systems and translators that are currently available to interact with GPBEST are presented here. Utilizing these features, a user is able to prepare a data set for the analysis using the integrated graphics system BESTVIEW or use translators to and from other graphics packages such as PATRAN, I-DEAS, FEMAP and HYPERMESH. In addition, since a documented neutral file format for data exchanges with GPBEST is available, users can easily write translation programs to interface with their own favorite graphics system. Currently, forward and reverse translators are available for PATRAN, I-DEAS (sometimes known as CAEDS), FEMAP, and HYPERMESH.
