I'm teaching a class on Vehicle Safety Engineering, and a link from the previous instructor comes to your site, but I can't find the tutorial. Can you help me with this?
The tutorial is about making a sphere and plate in LS-PrePost. The issue is that the link I have for the tutorial does not lead to what I need: http://www.lstc.com/lspp.content/tutorials.shtml

These tutorials are no longer available and most of the content was old and related to the old LS-PrePost GUI.
You can find more recent LSPP training material here:
Also, most of the information from lstc.com can now be found at lsdyna.ansys.com
Let me know if this helps or not.

You will find a similar model here:
You can modify it to suit your needs.
Let me know how it goes.

I checked with colleagues and the plan is to make these older LSPP tutorials available later this year on the lsdyna.ansys.com website.

There is a similar tutorial in the LSPP help. Go to the Help menu > Tutorial:
Then, you will be asked to download the tutorials:
Click on the download button. It will download the Tutor.chm file and open a folder in Windows file explorer. Find the Tutor.chm (most likely in your Downloads folder) and copy/paste it into the LSPP folder that was opened:
Now, if you click on Help > Tutorial, you should have access to the tutorials:
Let me know how it goes.

Thanks Reno. I tried downloading the Tutor.chm file. I tried putting it with the program, as you showed, and I tried opening it individually. The contents to the left are there, but window to the right remains empty no matter what I do. Two people from the IT department at Wayne State University experienced the same thing. I have no access to any help files -- not the tutorial and not the documentation. I am really struggling with this, and my students are waiting for me to figure this out.

Which version of LSPP are you using? Try with v4.10.
Sometimes, the Tutor.chm is locked and has to be unlocked by right clicking on Tutor.chm and going to properties.
If you can make it work on your personal computer, then something is wrong with the university system and your IT may be able to fix it.

Reno, you're a genius. Thanks!

The LSPP tutorials have been added to the Ansys help documentation at 2023R2:
It might be easier to access this way.
