export points into femap from excels via macro

export points into femap from excels via macro

RE: export points into femap from excels via macro

You have the “.Put” method graysd out. You’ll need that to actually create the nodes.

You may also want to include “.feViewRegenerate(0)” at the end to redraw the screen.

With those small changes your script created nodes for me.

RE: export points into femap from excels via macro

Hello Rcatania, thanks for the suggestion - it worked. i wish the coordinates to be exported as points, not as nodes. how do i achieve that ..thanks

RE: export points into femap from excels via macro

You will need a point object instead of a node object. In your script from "Dim nd as node" down to "loop" should be changed to

Dim pt As Point
Set pt = App.fePoint
I = 5
Do While Cells(I, 2) <>""
rc = pt.Get(pt.ID)
pt.ID = Cells(I, 2)
pt.x = Cells(I, 3)
pt.y = Cells(I, 4)
pt.z = Cells(I, 5)
pt.defCSys = Cells(I, 6)

rc = pt.Put(pt.ID)
I = I + 1

The nd.OutCsys is no longer needed.

RE: export points into femap from excels via macro

You need to change your code for Module2. Also, you need to dimension point a little differently. "Dim pt as femap.Point"

RE: export points into femap from excels via macro

thanks all, solved

RE: export points into femap from excels via macro

or you can create a point on the node

another day in paradise, or is paradise one day closer ?
