RISA-3D and Python programming. API?

RISA-3D and Python programming. API?

RISA-3D and Python programming. API?

I have moved firms and my current firm uses Risa, while my previous firm used SAP2000 for the finite element analysis.

I have a bunch of Risa models that I need to output. I was 'familiar' with the SAP2000 Oapi system, and could write a simple script. In this case I need to print out the report for 10 models. I need to generate several different image files and a report file, and then merge them all into a single document.

Previously, I would have accomplished this by writing a script that handled much of the repetitive nature of this task. (see CSI api basics ).

Can anyone point me towards where to start on this type of thing for Risa?

Thank you

RE: RISA-3D and Python programming. API?

RISA does not have an API. For spreadsheet input or output, however, you can print to a text file and use Excel (and whatever Macros you make in Excel) to post-process the output.
