Exporting nodal solution

Exporting nodal solution

(OP)
Guys, thanks in advance for whom help me.
I am doing an Ansys transient simulation on APDL. Everything was fine, till I need to export my nodal solution. I've looking everywhere how to do it but I still don't and I believe is sth really stupid. That's why ...
I did a transient solution where I have the temperature of the model, I can plot the temperature variation of one node (using nsol and plvar), but I need this variation on a file. I tried creating an array with dim and using vget with a do loop, I can do it for different nodes, cuz I can change the loop for different nodes, but for some reason, I can't for a single node, I can't access the different temperatures during the time, which means that I create an array with the same value in all the rows. I want a file with the temperature changes in time, the same result as I had plotting it. How can I export it?


!***Code to plot at a single node
nodal_solar=node(0.157,0,0.005)
nsol,2,nodal_solar,temp,,X+
plvar,2

I just want those results in a file.

Guys,

I found it... for those who had the same issue: After you plot your transient solution, access TimeHist Postpro in main menu, The time history Variables windows will open, select the solution and click on list data. Pretty simple and it worked for me. Thanks

RE: Exporting nodal solution

You can use the vget command to put a variable into an array vector. Then use *vwrite to write the vector to a text file. Make sure you use vget and not *vget. *vget i for use in POST1, vget is used in POST26.
