the sets in inp.file

the sets in inp.file

the sets in inp.file


I have defined partitions of plate with different materisls, assigned into two elsets and saved in inp. file.

But when I imported the inp.file, there is no materials properties and sets that I defined in the inp. file.

Need helps!

Thx a lot!

attached olease find my Inp.file

RE: the sets in inp.file

So you created part, partitioned it and meshed it in Abaqus/CAE and exported .inp file. Then you defined sets, added material definitions and sections with these materials assigned to previously created sets. When you imported this modified .inp file back to CAE materials and sections disapperared. Is that right ? If yes then there’s probably some misplaced keyword in your modified input file. Didn’t you get any warnings when importing input file to CAE ?

RE: the sets in inp.file

thanks @FEA way, I don't think there is keyword error and actually there is no warning... I have just uploaded the inp.file

RE: the sets in inp.file

I've imported the .inp and it worked fine. Everything important was there. Then I've submitted a datacheck from within A/CAE and it finished successfully.

RE: the sets in inp.file

I reviewed this file too and indeed it's correct. So you must have made some mistake when importing it to CAE. Maybe you accidentally chose different file or switched to different model. Remember that when you import model from input file to CAE then new model is created in the model tree while the old one remains unchanged and active.

RE: the sets in inp.file

thanks @Mustaine3 @FEA way!
Solved! I imported part by mistake...
