ODB file in initial condition in CAE

ODB file in initial condition in CAE

hi frds

I am working in ABAQUS CAE and i want to use an odb file as an initial condition and i have specified the file in
Step--> initial--> Field

and created a field and included the file by selecting in Field editor dialog box-->distribution--> From results or output dbfile--> and select the file from the location

and when i submitting the job it says

¨The following path is not located: C:/.........    (by specifyin the path of my odb file)

plz tell me a solution wat to do

i want to do in CAE not in inputfile

RE: ODB file in initial condition in CAE

If you typed it in you may have made a mistake. It's better to browse and select the file from the list.


RE: ODB file in initial condition in CAE

thx corus

i rectified the problem

it was some mismatch of path location as u said

for example

i browse and select from my path C:/Documents and settings
the unix system doesnt accept the space between documents

that was the problem

and we shud have the part file .prt with the odbfile in the same folder

thx again
