Extracting ANSYS results as CSV file using Python

Extracting ANSYS results as CSV file using Python

Extracting ANSYS results as CSV file using Python

Hi all,
I am having great difficulty writing part of a Python code that will automatically extract and record my ANSYS results in a CSV text format, without manually opening each and every analysis and copying them individually.
Any help would be greatly appreciated; there is a similar thread by andy5powell which has proved useful, however my problem lies in the extraction of results from ANSYS to excel, rather than getting ANSYS to read varying input parameters from excel.

Hope I make myself clear,

RE: Extracting ANSYS results as CSV file using Python

I'm guessing you are trying to script from within Workbench desktop, pulling results from multiple Mechanical Analysis contained within it. In the Workbench Scripting Guide, there is an example under the title Mechanical APDL and Sending Commands to Integrated Applications which utilizes SendCommand that may be useful.

Alternately, depending on what you're after, you could write an APDL script that sequentially look into each dp0\SYS\MECH folder, reads in the RST file, then extract the data into a CSV file.

Best regards,
