Weld Analysis at Throat of Model (part II)

Weld Analysis at Throat of Model (part II)

I need some help figuring out how to implement the macro using ANSYS WB.

I try to just copy it and paste it into Workbench as a command, but I must be missing something because it doesnt work for me.
Any additional details would be appreciated.

If you cut and paste the macro verbatum into a command snippet, you probably are not passing the number of welds to the script. Change the line "weldcount=arg1" to "weldcount=3" and it should work. Also, make sure you are in POST1 and do a set first. Also, the reaction file will be in weld demo_files,dp0,sys,mech.
