Abaqus scripting

Abaqus scripting

Abaqus scripting

(OP)
Hi,

I am anew user for abaqus scripting. I created a set in Cae file. then I opened rpy file. it is,
elements1 = e1.getSequenceFromMask(mask=('[#0:53 #8000000 ]', ), )
a.Set(elements=elements1, name='Set-3')
this, (mask=('[#0:53 #8000000 ] command is very difficult to understand. I checked in user manual. but it did not helped me a lot. infact I need to create sets for all elements by reading element's label. how do I replace this " FromMask(mask=('[#0:53 #8000000 ]" part with element label.

thank you

RE: Abaqus scripting

The reporting with these hashes is the default, because of performance reasons. But you can change that. Enter/paste the two command below into the A/CAE CLI and the reporting will be done with the index method during the session. So the IDs of the objects is used.

session.journalOptions.replayGeometry
session.journalOptions.setValues(replayGeometry=INDEX)


You can also add these two commands into an Abaqus environment file, to have them executed automatically at every start of Abaqus/CAE.

CODE -->

def onCaeStartup():
    session.journalOptions.replayGeometry
    session.journalOptions.setValues(replayGeometry=INDEX)

eBook - Rethink Your PLM
A lot has changed since the 90s. You don't surf the Web using dial-up anymore, so why are you still using a legacy PLM solution that's blocking your ability to innovate? To develop and launch products today, you need a flexible, cloud-based PLM, not a solution that's stuck in the past. Download Now
White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
